    I have been working at Univision full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is in growth mode in all aspects of the business. They have a strong brand affinity w/ their consumer and while so many are only just waking up to the importance of Hispanics this is a company that has been serving the community for a long time. There is also a real focus on employee develpment and training, which is rewarding for anyone trying to continue to learn and grow. This is the kind of place where hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Like most places these days, there arent enough people. The only upside to this is that people who are hungry and hard working can really thrive and grow here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people:-)

    Pros

    Audience in Spanish and now English with Fusion and El Rey. Good environment, atmosphere. Continuing to move the needle and has the capital backing for investment. Opened at one time to only Hispanic workers, now English speaking employees are more than welcome and at high levels of the organization.

    Cons

    At times moves too fast without thinking too long. Quit depending on Televisa for content.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward!

    Pros

    Their is a huge potential for growth and innovation, but you must be willing to get your hands dirty. The process of getting to the next level is going to be tough but not impossible.

    Cons

    The company has grown so much in the last few years, everything here seems tactical. Always putting our fires. Focus needs to be placed on Strategy and long term goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business needs a Strategic Roadmap with clear objectives to set the tone for the next 5 to 7 years. The organization needs to align Initiatives with those objectives and communicate them out to the organization.

    Pros

    There are a lot of wonderful people.

    Cons

    It seems as if they are always putting out fires rather than avoiding them. There is not a good work life balance since the calendar is not adhered to and deadlines are ignored. There is not a lot of time to review and forecast properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is low. It would be beneficial to make employees fee valuable and that their work isn't a waste of time since it will not be used. The same information in different formats is still the same information.

    I worked at Univision as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the staff is very nice they offer free food to employees who have to work on holidays.

    Cons

    Very little opportunities to get PT or FT. When they hire you as an independent contractor they never really tell you for how long you will be working and they constantly leave you in the air with out work for long periods of time. It's very unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should be more considerate with employees and be aware that people have others that depend on them.
