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

    I worked at Univision part-time (less than an 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.

    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.

    I worked at Univision as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice, welcoming, and truly passionate about the Hispanic consumer set. In whatever position, you really hit the ground running and given real projects and responsibility.

    Cons

    With ownership changing, there is high turnover of senior management. Sometimes the workplace is overshadowed by the pomp and circumstance of the corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold onto the senior management-- they are great mentors for those just starting out in their career.

    I worked at Univision full-time

    Pros

    There are no Pros that I can think of here. Maybe the building is cool. You get an office instead of a cubicle. I guess that is a plus in itself. The location is very nice. I think everything outside of the company is cool.

    Cons

    Everything. HR is awful. This company is so bad. They treat their employees like cattle. They micromanage the sh*t out of you. Management is painful, condescending, patronizing, and disgusting. I would not wish this company on my worst enemy.

    I worked at Univision full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of new opportunities and great people to work for, who come from various companies in the industry, both Hispanic and General Market. Great pay and benefits. A lot of opportunities to grow, given the companies own over 12 networks and is continuously growing, they just announced they are investing in "El Rey" network and they also have Fusion joint venture with ABC. I enjoyed my time at Univision and was promoted twice in 3 years. If you work hard, your efforts are recognized here.

    Cons

    Company going public in 2014, a lot of internal changes and restructuring at the moment
