    Nanomanaged & Hostile - Subordinates only own management failures, not own successes

    I worked at ESPN as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay: $60/HR, on-floor cafeteria, plenty of parking

    Cons

    There was about a three month "honeymoon" period and then the real culture appears....
    Hostile, credit robbing and blame ridden culture. Extreme nanomanagement. Work dumbed-down in comparison to job title. Forced into an endless cycle of re-working tests from broken processes instead of fixing the underlying problems. Pointing out failures is treated as treason. Even at $60/HR, there's only so much hostility a person can take.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to manage using something other than coercion.
