    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you'd want to be treated. Would make a better work environment if there was more communication, as well as not being as much of an uptight corporate work place. It's 2017 there's so many better ways to keep work interesting.

    I worked at ABC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are able to say you work for a renowned company, and feel proud. You can move to other companies under Disney. There is also job security as many people have been there for up to 42 years (maybe more)

    Cons

    Maybe my expectations were too high coming into a company under the disney umbrella, but I was definitely disappointed. To be clear, I am only writing about the abc digital sales ops department on the local side (not tv or national). This team was very poorly managed. Management was promoted from within having 8 to 12 +years of abc only experience. This sounds great but it's actually not. Basically to get to a manager level which is only one level above, you'll have to be there for a very very long time so there really is no room for growth within this dept. Another issue with this is that these managers know only abc and nothing else. I once sat in on a meeting where a vp answered a yes no question about the digital space incorrectly in front of 12 + people. That is when my doubt about managment became very clear. There were blatant issues with responsibilities and structure. You were expected to stay late, and use your personal phones and ipads for work related purposes without being reimbursed.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to HR and top level management is to figure out who is there to help the team grow and achieve successful results as opposed to keeping their job level and all their "allies" secure. Throw in a successful vp or higher level candidate from an outside company to help change things around and to ensure the team is profitable. Its really great when people can work together for so long because it builds comradery and shows stability, but the company can also be missing out on a lot of great talent and outside insight that can help further success
