I worked at Oprah Winfrey Network full-time (More than a year)
Very forward thinking, new-age approach, with transcendental meditation and other interesting benefits. Compensation was at or above industry rates for a number of positions, though it varied.
Management team was often in disagreement with executive team in long term strategy. Very difficult to discern between duo-leadership teams (of Harpo and Discovery).
Advice to Management
Listen and value the opinions of the middle management team. There were too many very talented individuals who left because their expertise and opinions simply wasn't being valued.
I applied online. I interviewed at Oprah Winfrey Network.
1. submit resume/cover letter online
2. phone call from HR recruiter to hear about my background and tell me about the internship role and program
3. skype interview w/ my future boss, another member of the team - very chill, conversational
4. phone call with my boss' boss, just to talk with her about her career and experience at OWN (also very relaxed)
phone call from HR shortly after telling me that I got the job!
