    Pros

    -Working in sports
    -Fast paced environment
    -Co-workers are cool

    Cons

    -Working in Seattle was a bit of an island from the rest of the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good fight against the cable companies. They will all be long gone at some point but your content distribution will live on via the information super highway.

    Pros

    It's ESPN, so as a sports fan you're at your mecca. You get tickets at times, but not all that often, but mostly you get to have all your meetings and reporting be about the sports you love.

    Cons

    Under average pay.

    Very little room for growth.

    Stifles intelligence: respects glad handing over work.

    Many managers aren't qualified for the positions that they're given.

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment that respects intelligence and hard work over who you know and how you network. Create more opportunities for growth within the lower and middle levels, and base promotions on performance based metrics. Transparency in goals for the department or restructuring wouldn't hurt either.
