    I worked at ESPN as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The entire staff is thoroughly professional and dedicated to their mission. They organized and passionate about their projects. They want to succeed and they want their employees to be happy and to return year after year.

    Cons

    They are definitely scaling back and cutting budgets. They ask freelancers to work 12-16 hour days during the x games. They need police managers better who ask employees to work these inhumane hours, because it makes people like me, who would otherwise enjoy the job, not want to come back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think just because people are passionate about the project that it's ok to work them 16 hours/day.
