    Pros

    The management was always run bottoms up, with the employees input always taken into consideration. The product and clients were always the most important part of the business and each employee was encouraged to act as an ambassador. The pay was great, however you work hard for it.

    Cons

    As it grew and especially when Saban gained control everything began to change. The company was controlled in an autocratic dictatorial fashion with a tone that made employees feel like they worked in a Soviet run state. Unfortunately many of the C-Level exec's were rude and extremely condescending to the employees who for the most part enjoyed working for Univision. Sales prior to the takeover were absolutely off the charts in many places. After the take over sales continued to grow at spectacular rates, however C level management was ungrateful and often times projected an isolated image.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully for all the great talented people that are employed at this company things will improve and the management style will change from the tyrannical LBO style of dressing the depraved property with a new coat of paint to make it look good while no one has bothered to check for termites in 8 years

    Pros

    Some people will actually care about your development and act as mentors.

    Cons

    No fun perks - for a media company, Univision could do better at letting their employees in on the fun

    Advice to Management

    Be more team oriented.

    Pros

    There was a good work environment and nice coworkers who offered to help whenever needed.

    Cons

    The office was sort of dead and from a creative stand point, very corporate for the presentations. The days were pretty dead but then the work would come in around 4 or 5PM and then you'd be there tip 7 or 8PM working.

    Advice to Management

    Try to disperse the work sooner.

    Pros

    It's a very fast paced environment so if that's what you're looking for you won't be disappointed. If you're in the good graces of upper management you will be taken care of financially.

    Cons

    Since the new former NBC executives came in the workplace has become much more cut-throat and less of a family atmosphere. Long hours are expected and there is little thought to work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Do you think your employees can't see thru the statement ' There are 6000 employees now and there will be 6000 employees next year', especially when the thought of an IPO is on everyone's lips?
