I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Incredible learning ground if you want to become a TV producer. You are absolutely given the chance to sink or swim from a very early point in your employment.

Cons

It is a politically charged atmosphere, where sometimes talented people are held back because someone knows someone. Hard to move up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication from the top on down would be the number one thing to improve upon

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is large, so you get a lot of desk space. It is located in CT, so they have private parking lot, which is amazing. The people are very nice.

    Cons

    There are strange insider gossips and something felt very wrong. People would speak behind each other's backs. I felt like there was something much more underneath that's going on than meets the eye of the beholder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more truthful with your employees.

    I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Fun company with lots of opportunity. Ability to work across different areas and experience different aspects to your job is a plus. Not too much hierarchy where jobs are completely siloed. Hours are long but if you like what you do it just means the day goes by faster and that's a plus. It's definitely never boring!

    Cons

    Still a young company in many ways related to organization and structure, very messy and random day to day. Often need to make the impossible happen. Work hours are very long and it is expected that you are on call at all times. Not the right company for you if you want a 9-5 and don't want to take work home with you. But I 'd say if you have the right boss, they will be understanding of this fact and allow some flexibility to make up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are only as good as your team - remember that, and spend time getting to know and listening to your teams, you'll be a better overall executive as a result and your teams will be happier. Be transparent, it's never good to feel uneasy or on shaky ground as an employee - it makes you want to look elsewhere for employment. Focus on communicating to your teams and you'll find the good ones will stick around longer.
