    I have been working at ESPN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary is competitive, despite what some employees think. The benefits are very good. The best thing about ESPN is job security. You have to really screw up to get fired.

    Cons

    The culture has changed a lot since the early days. It's an extremely competitive environment and it's very tough to advance. There is a zero-sum mentality among management - they like to observe the competition to see who will win. Your personality has a lot do with how far you advance. If you don't fit a certain mold, the opportunity for promotion will be slim.

    Advice to Management

    There doesn't have to be winners and losers. Show respect for all employees, as written in the mission statement.
