    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I firmly believe everyone in management should, at the very least, know how to perform the job of those they supervise.

    I have been working at HSN full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The corporate office is big - it employes thousands, so the pros and cons will differ by area. Overall, HSN is a very good place to work. Bright people that care about what they do. The campus is beautiful and the benefits are very good. The pay is competitive with similar roles in the Tampa Bay Area. Movement within the company to try different career paths is encouraged. Hard work and a team-oriented approach can earn you a long career at HSN.

    Cons

    The closer you are to the 24/7 aspects of the business (24 x 7 live programming), the more unpredictable your schedule can be. As with any big company, politics can get involved with promotions. The company has been known at times to hire external candidates over seemingly qualified internal candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue working on helping the left hand know what the right hand is doing - don't have the wheel reinvented in silos across campus.

    Pros

    I personally liked watching my products come to life on air. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Because its a 24/7 network, they expect you to work 24/7 but didn't provide the tools to do so (or the compensation). They work their employees to death- or until they leave. thats why i'm leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    set realistic expectations for your employees, especially based on their level. an assistant should be expected to work more than a buyer or vp...especially when they're getting paid half the amount.

    Pros

    Loved the discounts and the shopping environment

    Cons

    My supervisor was the worst micromanager, I quit and haven't ever looked back. Not only do they harass you if you come back from break 2 minutes late but they watch your screen when you take calls so that they can trey to control you in every aspect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do better! We are humans not robots!
