    I worked at Univision Communications Inc. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, Great company on resume, a lot of continuing education opportunities, opportunities for growth depend on the politics of your office.

    Cons

    The pay seemed low for the amount of work i was going. Univision is downsizing so expect to wear many hats, however when you look at the bright side this means a lot of learning opportunities in different areas. It all depends on your outlook.

    Pros

    Their time-off policy is great, they are very understanding of personal time needed. The brand is well-known since most Hispanics grew up with it in the household.

    Cons

    The leadership at the company is bad, they don't seem to value their employees and only put people in higher positions because of who they get along with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a chance to move up in the company, instead you bring in outsiders. Realize that those that have been with your for a while are loyal and will help the company grow instead of continuing to lay them off just because you reached the cap of what you can pay them.

    Pros

    My department is very hard working and full of good people.

    Cons

    It's all politics here. If you are in upper management, you have it made! If you are part of the support staff, you are pretty much in prison.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your support staff!

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

    Pros

    Great new office reboot (that's where the pay freezes went..) with plastic ware and plates and milk for coffeee, but that's it

    Sales teams seem to have a lot of fun, but depends on your group for sure

    Cons

    This place has seen insane turnover where "post-Univision glow" is a common term

    Management seems to prefer letting talent leave but hire in MBAs or others who don't know how to do the job at all. One person I know has suffered through four managers that have been hired and fired; meanwhile he's still doing their job but being paid half the salary.

    There's also no standard pay level - you can takeover another person's job and do a better job, but not be paid as much. You can also be promoted but not get a raise. Management seems to depend on an opaque pay structure. You can also ask for a raise multiple times and management will string you along, until you're so furious you finally quit.

    The head of sales is also a notoriously obnoxious, belligerent, impatient personality. The person who reports to him is equally impatient and massages numbers to cover his mistakes.

    In your interview be sure to ask about your boss and your boss's boss' personality. Are the patient and intellectually curious and empathetic? Or impatient, jumps to conclusions, easily stressed, swears to the point where it's unprofessional, and fake?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement 360 degree reviews and a standardized pay structure

    Pros

    Smart and hard working people. It's a great product to take to market and if you have the right people looking out for you, it can be a great place to move up the corporate ladder. The pay is also very competitive.

    Cons

    Politics are pretty brutal at this place. Lots of folks in upper management constantly looking to "reinvent" process which results in a lot of extra work for nothing. Emails are constant. Don't even think about disconnecting. It's looked down upon here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little things go a long way. Stop demanding so much of your employees time. A good work life balance leads to more productivity.

    Pros

    Promotions came but you would have to network to find them.

    Cons

    Training was very poor, whether a new employee or moving to a new division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at your top talent.

    Pros

    You get the best training when it comes to understanding the Hispanic Market. They prepare you to succeed.
    Get in here ,learn ,learn ,learn and be sure that you can be an asset to any company that is looking to target the fast growing Hispanic community .

    Cons

    Company doesn't value employes. In the last five years we have massive laid offs around the country.
    We have been operating in the last month with very small team for every department. If we were and engine , now we are running with two cylinders ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to improve the compensation plan ,employees retention, employees appreciation.
    Office culture is very old school in many aspects ,need to improve.

    Pros

    High Pay, decent benefits (have had better), seem to promote quickly up to Senior Management level.

    Cons

    No structure, frequent mis-communication. Leadership does not communicate with one another. HR is practically non-existent. I had to contact HR myself to get information on enrolling for benefits. Was not given a presentation on the company or benefits package until after being with the company for 3 months. The presentation was through the web and was basically read to me and had incorrect information regarding the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring just to fill head count.
