I have been working at ESPN

Pros

The most talented people in the industry work here. There's great people outside ESPN, but chances are they ended up here at some point or are still there.

Cons

Everything you hated about how a high school cafeteria functioned socially is true at ESPN. Imagine it's with adults who have money and hormones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They're your employees. They break their backs because they love what they do. They make you look good. Appreciate them.

    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.

    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.
