    I worked at ESPN as a contractor

    Pros

    Talent and work ethic pay off at ESPN. When you work as a freelancer on remote events, you're only as good as your last show. This generally cultivated an atmosphere of hard working individuals who cared about what they did.

    Cons

    Working as a freelancer requires a lot of travel. For those who value their home life, it's a difficult job.

  9. I worked at ESPN

    Pros

    Got to visit and shadow other departments as well as the one I was interning with. Bonded with the other interns. Got to listen to a lot of great speakers.

    Cons

    There were really no cons to working with ESPN. It was fun, upbeat, and I was always busy helping out and doing my own projects.

    Pros

    ESPN is filled with remarkable people who just want to put out a great product. The attention to detail and just wanting to be the best

    There are no real downsides other than as it has gotten so big, it has gotten a little corporate

    Always make sure you spend time with those under you
