I worked at ESPN

Pros

The overall environment at ESPN is very casual, very friendly and most of all respectfull. Great place to work for college graduates looking to get a head in the television industry. Also great benefits as well as VERY GOOD PERKS.

Cons

This is a 24 hour environment so be prepared to work the over night shift if you are a new hire.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to get to know your staff and the more you offer them the more they will be willing to sacrafice themselves for you.

    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?
