    I have been working at ESPN

    Pros

    The biggest broadcast learning place in the world. You can learn and see more new STUFF than anywhere in the world.

    Cons

    Run by the good ole boys. They tend to do what is best for them and not really listen to what people are asking for. It has great hope of being the best place to work if the good ole boys retire

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. stop doing what you think is good for all and listen to what all are saying.

    It sounds better to say you work at ESPN than it actual is to work at ESPN

    I worked at ESPN

    Pros

    It sounds glamorous and sexy and the salary/benefits are excellent. They also are quite flexible if you need time off for anything. I was relatively new at the time and needed unplanned surgery and they allowed me to work from home since I did not technically have the time available.

    Cons

    Some of the decisions by Exceutive leadership can leave you scratching your head. Also, there is an odd, hard to describe culture where women treat other women horribly at the office (for a perception of strength I guess). They are cut throat to themselves but treat the males fine--very strange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that actually have relevant experience for the role.
