    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.

    Former Employee - Strategies and Insights Intern in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Univision part-time for less than a year

    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.

    What the company does for the community is remarkable. It's no wonder why the brand is so loved by the audience.

    Limited growth opportunities. Compensation could be better. Unclear structure and there's a deficit of good mentors.

    Pros

    Great "worker bees". Collaborative environement, depending on division...Great to better learn understand the Hispanic culture.

    Cons

    Management is generally dishonest. Words and actions dont match. They promise you a salary, then divide it up into base and potential. I do not know anyone who made their "salary". Constantly creating new measurement criteria, which causes less salespeople to make their pay, which is 100% commisssion. They will hire lot of people as they never have to pay them. Also in bad weather, if you do not make it into the office - they will take your vacation days for each day missed. Also discrimination is rampant and practiced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are not interested in what I thought then and less likely now...I repeat be careful.
