Advice to ManagementAdvice

We know it's tough times and we're supposed to do more with less, cut us some slack, though. We're getting burned out!

    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.
