    Pros

    OK healthcare benefits. I honestly cannot think of any pros.

    Cons

    Salary, PTO, Management, old school mentality + still use lotus notes as email!

    Advice to Management

    Train your people and offer better salaries.

    Pros

    Ok learning experience and average compensation. Some team members are willing to train you and help you learn about the job and the company.

    Cons

    It is hard to work when there is so much internal conflict among team members. Not much opportunity for career advancement.

    Pros

    It used to be a good and nice work environment within a friendly atmosphere of co-workers. Used to have good benefits such as a good healthcare, 401 K and severance. In paper they care about human values & charities. In real life I have my doubts. The main and only interest seem to be profit with out basic integrity. Functional Heads personal self interest which makes it even worst and without integrity to the company.

    Cons

    Unorganized work. Last minute calls. Everybody have a scapegoat in case they do something wrong, but if someone with less hierarchy does an error then you are the only one to blame, even if they help or silenced the error. Very good people with lots of talents were once in Azteca America, but the organization and the director get rid of them. People with lesser value but with sharp tongues are close to the functional head and ripping apart the organization with short term profits and speculative views. Unofficially I had two bosses. Just to cover the main one in case the other screw up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop producing junk that has been over and over the different spanish Networks. All the savings from ripping apart the organization structure is doubled by producing and airing junk programs that nobody watch. Sometimes I have my doubts that the saving is such because what they are doing is compromising the real assets of the company. People of high value have been fired and only the worst is the remanent. Stop looking for the near, closer and easier dollar , that could bring the total collapse of the company.

    Pros

    Fun, good ambient, some relative freedom to work on personal projects, shooting scenes was an awesome experience.

    Cons

    Times are erratic, overtime (Which happens more often than not) isn't paid on top of the wages being too low, this makes the word a bit unrewarding. Sometimes one has to work from 7AM to midnight.

    Advice to Management

    People need better times, wages should be increased badly, especially if your employees have degrees, those count for something and they weren't free, skills should be paid they way they deserve it, especially after they save you tons of money in production costs.

    Pros

    Great salary, good perks and great people as well as an incredible learning experience. a lot of people say "if youved worked at TV Azteca, you can work anywhere" this is mainly because every other job looks like it might be a walk in the park compared to this one.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a problem here, long hours, massive amounts of pressure (i really mean MASSIVE),

    Advice to Management

    Try to take more interest in balancing the work-life aspect of jobs and develop an employee "safety net" that could handle issues that they might be having in their personal lives because of the job (tends to happened to everyone ive talked to that has worked more than one year here)
