Other Employee Reviews for ESPN

  1. "An awesome internship experience, was treated as an actual employee rather than just a ten week employee."

    Pros

    Got to visit and shadow other departments as well as the one I was interning with. Bonded with the other interns. Got to listen to a lot of great speakers.

    Cons

    There were really no cons to working with ESPN. It was fun, upbeat, and I was always busy helping out and doing my own projects.
