    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ESPN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and definitely a great benefits package. Being a Disney employee has great perks also. You are challenged to be innovative quite frequently and are frequently asked to contribute to high visibility projects. The core group of digital media designers and developers contribute to a large percentage of the digital projects.

    Cons

    Vertical promotions peak after a while. Once you reach a certain position, there's not much room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better opportunities for employees

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

    Pros

    People here are passionate about their jobs. It's a lifestyle. Environment is super friendly and people work hard / play hard. Depending on department, busy seasons come in waves, but for the most part - you are busy.

    Cons

    Lots of ladders, politicking and networking that needs to go on to be able to grow within the company. Sometimes good work doesn't always result in successful career moves...

    Advice to Management

    Understand what your employees do, so you can better help them grow their careers.
