Former Employee - Independent Contractor  in  New York, NY
Former Employee - Independent Contractor in New York, NY

I worked at ESPN

Pros

Pay on time and typically well.

Cons

After being an independent contractor for years and due to Dept of Labor's new regulations, forced me to be paid by a production company who asked me to do other (non-ESPN) work without compensation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit hiding behind production companies. If they were too controversial at corporate ESPN, imagine how they are to work for when they are the boss?

    Take a hands-on approach to knowing what your workers are doing rather than basing their performance on what others say...there's a general disconnect there.
