    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting brand, multi vertical entertainment complex, narrow staff, exposure to VKM one of the greatest promoters alive

    Cons

    I know Vince, Linda, Shane and Steph too, all great people who care deeply about the WWE. this isn't about them, it is about the man they have running their company. Turnover here is unbelievable, most management roles turnover every 2yrs! All of the long term staff have fled in the last 14 months. The guy running the whole thing has destroyed the business from the inside all the way out to wall street...and here's my advice

    Advice to Management

    give the WWE over to H already and toss the CFO. The problem has always been this at the WWE, you need to be a fan that understand the business. The CFO doesn't get WWE fans and the content, it is not NASCAR or NBA, even wall street now doesn't believe that he understand investors either. This is a great company and one man has riddled it with problems for his own glory, he is a bully and cost the McMahon's many dedicated staff that care about the brand.

    Talented writers, designers and developers.

    The leadership strategy at WWE is two fold, intimidation of leadership and zero promotion from within.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of opportunities to do what you want. Mostly everyone you work with is very friendly and enjoyable to be around. Non salary jobs offer a ton of overtime whenever you want it, flip side being you don't make very much hourly and will need it.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great. Tough to move through early and mid-career points. Highly political atmosphere that will downright disregard your ability or talent if someone more important than you decides they dislike you.

    Advice to Management

    Understand employees better, offer clearer communication as opposed to vaguely recalling problems in the past. Place a greater importance on creativity and less on politics.

    I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good momentum, fair pay, access to touching all points in media/entertainment, highly visible American brand, kinda dankish but free gym, indoor cafeteria staffed by fun imbibing chefs, constant pivot of priority

    Cons

    Whatever stage of a career you are in this will be where it goes to die. WWE is never pilfered for its executive or managerial talent for reason-they're not talented. You work here to go through motions but as far as advancing your skill sets or professional achievement those things are not going to happen and thus your role is in providing for the WWE without reciprocation. This is why you only find people who have worked there for 0-2yrs or +10yrs, there's no middle because either they've fled or are culled every few years. Constant pivot of priority, death by meetings, no security in role, zero trust in the person to your left/right/above you/below you.

    Advice to Management

    1/restructure 2/go private, again 3/merge 4/need 1 change at tv I left the company after I realized that Shane wasn't coming back to save us all and that Steph & H weren't being given the reigns as they should have been. The WWE has become a very uncomfortable custody dispute between two senior execs over who will take ceo and that battle cost the company lots of good people. VKM is the Man!

    Pros

    WWE is a great place to work if you’re looking to advance your career, be challenged on a daily basis and work in a fun, fast-paced environment. Employees are rewarded and recognized for their hard work. There's also a great sense of accomplishment among employees. It's a great feeling knowing you're making a real impact to the business.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is definitely something that’s difficult to manage.

    I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everyday at WWE is a different day and presents different challenges, so there is never a dull moment. The employees are talented and are very passionate about this brand. WWE also values their employees and illustrates that by providing opportunities internally and always looking to grow talent from within.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is always a challenge no matter where you work, but I think it is more challenging at WWE especially if you are a mom wanting to be successful in your career. I also think that promotions and compensations are inconsistent across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you would want to be treated.

    Pros

    Good pay, very talented staff.

    Cons

    It's like being in junior high in terms of office politics. It's hard to feel good about your job when a lot of the executive staff is so demeaning.

    Advice to Management

    Be on time and respect your employees. Treating everyone like they are beneath your intellect is counterproductive to a healthy work environment.

    Pros

    I have been working at WWE for nearly 4 years. It has been a terrific experience both professionally and personally. I have been provided with the opportunity to learn, grow and move within the company. Staff is collaborative and some of the most hard working dedicated people I have ever met. I enjoy coming to work every day and look forward to many years to come.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging at times when working for a 24/7 global entertainment company.

    Pros

    Fun projects, can be very hands on if you are driven. Loved the people I worked with.

    Cons

    They hire production assistants to do assistant editor and associate producer work for $14 an hour. Hours can be very long and demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Create more of a work life balance.
