Pros

It is a sports fan dream
They provide a good balance of work/life
They have a comfortable environment
Good learning experience
Overall a fun place to work

Cons

The internship seemed to be more along the lines of cheap labor rather than as company that is looking to develop and hone future employees from in-house. The do kind of tell you that going into the position though

Advice to Management

Overall i think that they have done a great job. The few bad apples they have hired on their networks should not spoil the reputation of this company.

    Pros

    The most talented people in the industry work here. There's great people outside ESPN, but chances are they ended up here at some point or are still there.

    Cons

    Everything you hated about how a high school cafeteria functioned socially is true at ESPN. Imagine it's with adults who have money and hormones.

    Advice to Management

    They're your employees. They break their backs because they love what they do. They make you look good. Appreciate them.

    Pros

    It is a solid place to work and a lot of fun to work there. I enjoy being an employee.

    Cons

    The human resources department leaves much to be desired as they work very slowly to respond to any questions and or comments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but I suggest increasing starting salaries for entry level positions to increase competitiveness compared to competitors.
