ESPN is an exciting place to work, where the company as a whole expects employees to eat/breathe/sleep ESPN culture.

Pros

If you are a sports fan, there is no better atmosphere. Either in Production or in more traditional 9-5 business disciplines, you will be surrounded with people who enjoy a 20 minute conversation about minute details of last night's game.

Cons

Even at the management level, you will work Nights, Weekends and Holidays....you know, when sports are Live. The strategy and culture is very top-down, where the direction of the company is dictated by management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

ESPN Management was always good to me in allowing me to have a life outside of ESPN. I often speak very highly of the management and simply left to pursue other interests.

    I worked at ESPN

    Pros

    Great work environment with many positive people that are very pleasant. As an intern was able to meet individuals from across the country with diverse backgrounds. During time there enjoyed numerous volunteer opportunities and corporate events that allowed for interaction with on screen talent.

    Cons

    Location might not be the best for some but for an internship is a great change of pace. Company does not provide much feedback regarding performance until end of term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your employees are able to see a route towards achieving whatever career goals they have planned for themselves.
