    I have been working at Univision Communications Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Its a large company with a large viewership that can keep on developing the industry, which is a growing market .It has a wide market to expand in the future.

    Cons

    The company took a wrong turn five years ago with the upper management that its ruining it completely . They have been expanding the upper management with generous compensation for themselves while neglecting the production, which is what drives revenue. That's why rival Telemundo is slowly gaining ratings. Also a very bad investments like Fusion and El Rey.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that its a television company that was the leader for decades. Now Telemundo is becoming the leader while you wait and see.

    Pros

    Very welcoming people. If you're outgoing, the staff will definitely want to talk with you. Gives great perspective on what its like to work in communications company--how they make their money, reach the audience, etc.

    Cons

    It was not uncommon to make negative comments about co-workers in other departments in meetings. This is not good for morale.

    Advice to Management

    Discourage sarcastic comments about co-workers made at the office.

    I worked at Univision Communications Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Industry parties, opportunity to work with a big name company

    Cons

    Attitudes of the team were poor, low morale, revolving door, heavy workloads (to make up for those that quit/resigned), thank you's for doing the extra work are few and far between

    Advice to Management

    Show gratitude to your employees - a thank you, team outings or just sheer acknowledgement would go far

    I worked at Univision Communications Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Nationwide reach, household name, competitive salaries. - Mini Hollywood in Miami - Formal processes in place (mostly) - Work on lots of projects

    Cons

    With looming sale / IPO, each person must do the work of 2 - 3 people. Sr. Management obsessed with short term thinking, not long term strategy, employee morale low; little training / advancement opportunities. Depending on your division, many times difficult to balance work/life.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the accountants drive the vision of the company. Don't spend lavishly on pet projects and neglect the core team / audience / institution.

    I have been working at Univision Communications Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love the people I work with. I have never worked with a more passionate group of people who truly love what they do and care about the company.

    Cons

    Everyone is overworked, under appreciated and under paid. Make changes to departments, thinking that they are helping the department to run more efficiently, but never ask what that department needs. Leaving the department short handed, with the same problems and wondering why they are not seeing results,

    Advice to Management

    Ask the people that work in the department what could improve the department, bit some consting firm or LEAP student that has never done the job. Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Some great professionals.

    Cons

    New management is too corporatist, they couldn't care less about the company and its people. Too many management layers and growing.

    Advice to Management

    Show some love for the people of the city that the company is operating in. Start producing local content instead of bringing it in all from Mexico.

    You work with a great team and learn the ins and out of the sales business. It can be a fun and exciting company to work for. Everyone works well and gets along.

    Cons

    A LOT OF WORK! understaffed is an understatement. The role is accountable for a lot of money and mistakes can happen easily when you are rushing to move on to the next thing.

    Advice to Management

    hire more Acs
