I worked at ESPN part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

As a sport's bar, the best things about working there were the customers themselves. We all had a great time.

Cons

Disney decided to shut down all of our major locations except for the one left at LA Live.

    I have been working at ESPN full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Travel to cool spots, co-workers, schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Pay, unclear expectations of what it takes to be successful, propensity towards sexism, total lack of communication in upper management, red tape for miles when trying to get something done.

    Advice to Management

    live up to the 'pay for performance' directive as opposed to putting quotas on performance.
