Overworked and embarrassingly underpaid in a dysfunctional department.

Supervising Producer (Former Employee)
Saint Petersburg, FL

ProsNice campus and employee discount
Worked with a lot of great people and made a lot of friends

ConsMy supervisor was a woman who would micromanage every little aspect of her team, until there was an issue or a problem - then it was all on you. A very poor leader who would bog her team down with distracting busy work, endless meetings, and other distractions from your already very busy days that would often keep you at your desk well into the evening hours.

There's a palpable sense of hostility that exists between departments at HSN. You get the sense that the only reason anybody cooperates with other teams is because they have too, but won't hesitate to throw other team members under the bus as soon as they can.

They expect you to be on your Blackberry 24/7/365, or else.

Very little chance of advancement unless you're a part of the clique or of a certain lifestyle persuasion. Some inexperienced VP's & directors here were hired only because of who on the 5th Floor of the Tower they know, while offering little expertise to the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand the strengths of your team members and let them loose to do what they know how to do.

Quit promoting people based only on the crowd they run with. This isn't high school.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
