    Pros

    You learn a lot about production and get to work with nice and knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    You're horribly underpaid
    Some of your superiors are unprofessional and lose their tempers at a moment's notice
    Your health and well being is second to the production
    Moving in to a full time position is next to impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take advantage of your employees. Many of them are immigrants who are exploited because they are just grateful to be working.

    Pros

    Generous salaries. Some smart people.

    Cons

    Awful management - young, egotistical, disrespectful, cutthroat. Corporate politics - be careful what you say and to who. Constant change - structure is always changing, so it's impossible to know exactly know what your role is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider employee satisfaction. Assistants should not act as HR fill ins.

    Pros

    Working at Univision was a great experience for me. I was able to learn a lot about Excel, PowerPoint, and many other important programs that will be beneficial for future jobs. The mentoring is amazing with the Strategies and Insights department, and at the end of the internship, you are to make a 20 minute presentation researching about the company.

    Cons

    There are some times where there might not be anything to do.
