    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 for 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

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

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Good Location
    Growing Demographic
    Many resources made available

    Cons

    Was told that I had 2 weeks vacation. Shortly after starting was told that 1 of those weeks I had to use during Xmas week. They only give you 1 week per year. Worked there for a very short time but got the game on this place very quickly. Lots of bitterness and everyone is fearful for next round of layoffs. No team work. Was lucky my last job took me back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with future employees. Follow the rules that you expect employees to. Human Resource won't close early on Good Friday but head of HR gets to leave early?

    I worked at Univision

    Pros

    Smart investment in the right equipment for this technical-oriented employer...even if a bit on the late side at times.

    Cons

    Holds onto the wrong employees. Does not remove under performers, instead choosing to eliminate stand out (co-workers) for political reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to middle management at the station level. They are the ones doing, and seeing first-hand, the actual work.

    Former Employee - Corporate Communications Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Univision as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Working in the Latino market is definitely engaging, and there is just an explosion of growth in content and audience. There are always many new projects happening, and it feels like the corporation genuinely cares about engaging its constituents for positive and worthwhile causes (voting, civic engagement, education, etc).

    Cons

    It's a very corporate atmosphere, with very little socialization. For an organization that thrives on its Latinidad, it sure is stuffy! The executives are very inaccessible, and there is a lot of pressure to always be on call.
