    There are no cons I can think of. You would be hard pressed to find a better place to work. If you are not passionate about what you do, then this might not be the place for you.

    I have been working at ESPN full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You learn so much through your work and they switch you on projects/accounts so that you are never bored. I am able to work from home as needed and never are expected to work on the weekends.

    Cons

    A lot of people need to be fired and replaced with people who are younger, brighter, and able to come up with better ways to improve current processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull for more promotions, not just assignments.
