    I have been working at ESPN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, value employees, great benefits. Is a company that I would be happy to work for the rest of my career.

    Cons

    Industry is struggling, future not guaranteed. Downside of a position has been well documented in the media. Unsure if more cuts will come from higher ups or from "average" employees.

    Advice to Management

    More communication needed with employees on the long term viability of positions.
