    Pros

    Something interesting is always happening and not to mention fun. You get to grow here and be surrounded by people who love their job just as much as they love sports. It's a win win!

    Cons

    Compensation seems to be a bit lower than average specifically because everyone wants to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fun atmosphere.

    Pros

    You get a ton of exposure to the different digital products ESPN owns and through the exposure learn a lot about digital marketing as a whole. The people you work with are incredibly friendly and the company has a very casual work atmosphere. They really looked out for the interns and always offered help. I was never afraid to ask questions during a meeting and got a great understanding of the relationships between the marketing team, sales team and sports management team

    Cons

    The beginning was very slow. A lot of what you work on are things you learn as you go so in the beginning it can be difficult to understand what they expect from you. IT can be extremely slow if you have an issue.

    Pros

    A near-obsession with ensuring it is staying on the front edge of trends. Smart people everywhere. Crosses many industries and technologies. Appreciated even more when you spend time around other major media, tech and telecoms companies.

    Cons

    Not perfect - no place is. HQ location in semi-rural central CT is tough for many, and without question it does thrive on a culture and people that battle with work-life balance.

    Pros

    People care about you as a person instead of just work. Everyone is happy and genuinely nice around "Bristol Campus"

    Bristol is boring besides ESPN
