I worked at ESPN

Pros

Worked for the IT department in North Campus, It is fun and relaxed environment. With TVs all around you will definitely won't much in sport and plus there is lot of activities going on the main campus.

Cons

Lack of competitive pay and growth. Also felt like there is push to hire more and more rather than focus on getting things done with available resources and building and promoting them.

 In IT department Indians make up large portion of work force but very few are in management level which was little puzzling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to more open to promote talented hires.

    Pros

    its a great place to be. If you excel at working your tail off and relish pressure situations then this si the place for you.

    Cons

    It is easy to get lost in the shuffle but really that is any company. Living in Bristol really wasn't ideal..But you can say that about anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ESPN is the worldwide leader in sports. Why change a good thing. You know how to identify an asset and make the most of it.

    I have been working at ESPN

    Pros

    Job is fairly easy. Get paid to watch sports and do basic data entry. Casual work environment with friendly people who have similar interests as you. Very accommodating with schedule.

    Cons

    Mostly night shifts and schedule is based off of production needs. Must be able to work on the weekends. On-the-go training. Maximum of 28 hours a week.
