I worked at A&E Networks full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

-Great support network
-Smart dedicated and collaborative colleagues
-The company really works hard at being innovative

Cons

-When I was there compensation was pretty low
-There are some horrible managers. Thankfully I never had to work much with them but some of them are pretty legendary. Not sure if senior management thinks they're ok as long as they're meeting some numbers even though their people skills are pretty much non-existent.

    I worked at A&E Networks

    Pros

    Creative environment with some fun and friendly people. Hours aren't terrible.

    Cons

    No room for growth. No contact with senior management. contract employees and freelancers are treated like second class citizens. High school atmosphere. HR is very difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your freelancer policies - does not encourage non-employees to feel like a part of the team.

    I have been working at A&E Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The health benefits are the best I've had, and managers understand work/life balance. The company is growing, so there are many opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Departments do not work together well. There is no "middle class" here. It's all upper management and coordinators, and the rift is apparent. Upper management does not inspire innovation or encourage working across departments.
