    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.

    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.

    Pros

    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

    Pros

    Amazing passionate and kind people ready to give 100% . Amazing CEO and some great top executives. Great Network and huge opportunity to grow in the industry.

    Cons

    Middle management is horrendous, sales cars people with no business acumen and poor poor management skills specially at the VP and SVP level... Unfortunately lower level employees pay the price for poor middle management. if you are young, smart and w decent business acumen, middle management will crush you and punish you. Salaries are low to average. HR has good empowering programs but unfortunately the chain of communication and culture between Top level Execs and middle management is broken. Univision then looses a lot of amazing young smart talent.

    Advice to Management

    Try to communicate with lower level employees and have much better middle management team, be open to young talent and ideas to improve the culture. Break silos and be welcoming to employees that want to break to "status quo" rather than punish them. Univision needs young talent and ideas, no car sales people with little business acumen and business etiquette.
