I have been working at ESPN

Pros

It is a solid place to work and a lot of fun to work there. I enjoy being an employee.

Cons

The human resources department leaves much to be desired as they work very slowly to respond to any questions and or comments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, but I suggest increasing starting salaries for entry level positions to increase competitiveness compared to competitors.

    I have been working at ESPN

    Pros

    Active, friendly place to work. Always something exciting going on or coming up. Massive company parties, like the picnic and holiday party (R.I.P.).

    Cons

    Human resources is slow accomplishing anything, from contacting you, hiring, posting jobs, and get promotions in order. Sometimes Disney corporate policies are in place that have no relevance to working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Pay for Performance" is a great motto, but I have seen HR policies and politics get in the way of good people with great reviews being promoted while consultants get converted over to full-time employees. It made no sense.

    Great place to work, but seems difficult to advance from within.

    Pros

    It is a sports fan dream
    They provide a good balance of work/life
    They have a comfortable environment
    Good learning experience
    Overall a fun place to work

    Cons

    The internship seemed to be more along the lines of cheap labor rather than as company that is looking to develop and hone future employees from in-house. The do kind of tell you that going into the position though

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall i think that they have done a great job. The few bad apples they have hired on their networks should not spoil the reputation of this company.
