I have been working at ESPN full-time for more than a year

Pros

Morale is pretty high at ESPN for the most part. We treat sports pretty seriously but we understand it's just a game and it's to be enjoyed. They’re serious about diversity here. (Though their top executives don’t reflect that. Hopefully this is something they are working on.) If you love sports, you will fit right in.

Cons

It’s still pretty much a bro culture. There are many sharp, talented women, but you definitely fit in more if you’re most comfortable in a golf shirt and khakis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire people who have experience in more than just sports and sports journalism. It will make the workplace AND the content more diverse and successful.

    I worked at ESPN as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You work at the Worldwide Leader in Sports and get many perks.

    Cons

    As an intern, you are given very few responsibilities nd thus many long days ensue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing
