    I worked at Televisa full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very smart people, creative, beautiful artists. Broad range of activities within a massive media conglomerate that covers everything from telenovelas production to publishing.

    Cons

    Lots of politics. You have to be aligned to one of the four main groups within the company of Emilio Azcarraga and/or his three lieutenants. This is for the upper echelons of the company. If you are a medium or low level employee its difficult to get ahead.

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

    Pros

    Well, Televisa is the biggest media corporation in Mexico, it has the best tools and equipment to work, you may see things you may never see in other places. People respect and admire the logo in the streets almos everywhere.

    Cons

    They really, really need to improve in many things, everything needs to be fast because that's how the media works, but some people have no talent and they are managers or directors. The companie in general has a big level of arrogance, they will never improve if they keep doing the same stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people on the locals stations because they do more work than the colleagues in Mexico City and they get paid a lot more less

    Pros

    Salaries and overall benefits are very attractive and competitive. Offer a sound corporate brand for external projections in order to look better career alternatives.

    Top management is only for family and friends. No career plans for middle managers. Loyalty and discipline are the two most appreciate corporate values, above of excellence or professional achievements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent Development and Talent Acquisition based on merit not on relations.

    Pros

    I loved haveing new scenarios to work on every day, it was definetly never boring. It is almost a city in its own, coworkers end up marrying coworkers because of long hours, life is contained to your working evironment.

    Cons

    not alot of room to advance. non existant social life out of work. heavy work load

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create more level of positions for advancement, maybe cross training in other areas and more people to cover heavy workload
