    Pros

    Great hardworking coworkers.
    Good location ... dont know what else to write. Coworkers are great the company is HORRIBLE!

    Cons

    Horrible horrible management. Univision lays off many people then expect you to pick up the slack. Upper management get raises and bonuses while the little people working get nothing! They have a LEAP program that brings in talented college grads but yet they do not invest in there own people or try to create programs to make the current staff better.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees that have worked hard for many years! Also communicated more .. stop all the secrecy.

    Pros

    Nice environment with coworkers only. As an entry level professional you can learn a lot, even master new skills.

    Cons

    Downsizing is stressing the workforce. Wearing to many hats with the same salary and the management getting bonuses at.the end of the year. The people with experience is not longer valuable for the company, management doesn't care about quality, is the same to have a kfc or McDonald's shift manager than a news director. The salary is the lowest in every market, but how they show off their ratings every sweep period.
    The multiple layer at the top made with vice presidents is a joke in the industry, it seems as a ponzy scheme. There is no advance system to promote.the.hard.workers, sexual advancement and harrasment still in the higher ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Just because there is a loyal audience, doesn't mean you can't innovate and value them. Univision is in the top, because the soldiers that everyday give their very the best. Care about them, stop naming new vice presidents or at least promote the hard workers. Put in place a advancement system, stop promoting outsiders.

    Pros

    - Commitment to the Hispanic community
    - External reputation (which does not match reality)

    Cons

    - no room for advancement
    - poor bonus potential, VP and above only (what they "fight to get" for directors is laughable)
    - managers are never ever satisfied
    - very distinct factions in the company, with heads/presidents of units at odds
    - be prepared to work many evenings and weekends
    - veiled threat of an IPO and mysterious rounds of layoffs is meant to make us all believe we are lucky to have jobs
    -- no employee surveys

    Advice to Management

    -- practice what you preach
    -- look into work/life initiatives
    -- support your people
    -- look at morale within specific teams
    -- maybe try doing an employee survey
    -- pay market rate

    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
