Current Employee - Consultant  in  Bristol, CT
Current Employee - Consultant in Bristol, CT

Pros

Company doing extremely well, growing rapidly, with lots of opportunity for those who bring valid skillsets to the business. Much comraderie.

Cons

Doing well and having money (deep pockets) also brings a certain lack of focus. Not a strategy driven company. Built from ground up, lots of talented people who have been there many years, and sometimes not enough outside influences to help business grow beyond what they know (well... sports entertainment.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build more depth; dig deep to develop talent.

    Pros

    Good opportunities for career growth. Great chance of exposure with the latest and most up to date material and equipment. Friendly, divers and helpful co-worker.

    Cons

    ESPN location is not the best place to live. It has almost a 6 month winter and there is not much to do besides work.

    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.
