I have been working at ESPN full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Morale is pretty high at ESPN for the most part. We treat sports pretty seriously but we understand it's just a game and it's to be enjoyed. They’re serious about diversity here. (Though their top executives don’t reflect that. Hopefully this is something they are working on.) If you love sports, you will fit right in.

Cons

It’s still pretty much a bro culture. There are many sharp, talented women, but you definitely fit in more if you’re most comfortable in a golf shirt and khakis.

Advice to Management

Hire people who have experience in more than just sports and sports journalism. It will make the workplace AND the content more diverse and successful.
