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.
