    I worked at NESN full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, good culture, outside of downtown Boston with plenty of parking.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for internal growth, highly competitive, no work/life balance, zero retention of top-tier employees

    Advice to Management

    There's more to a quality work environment other than a healthy bottom line. Too many closed doors. Not enough open dialogue between management and employees. Fear is not inspiring.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NESN (Watertown, MA).

    Interview

    Talked to an HR rep for 15 minutes. Said the position is all logging and prompting. $16.11/hr with overtime. Then came an in person interview with an ancient history sports quiz. In the interview I was asked to name the Red Sox pitching rotation and what the Bruins should improve on.
