No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Experience and resume-booster. Learned a lot about the television production industry. Picked up skills that can easily transfer to other industries.

Cons

Overworked and Underpaid. No work-life balance. No company loyalty. No room for growth. Promotions not based on work ethic and contributions. Do not promote from within.

Advice to Management

Better communication. Build employee morale. Make your employees feel valuable and worthy. Promote hard and great work. Show loyalty by promoting from within.
