No opinion of CEO

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.

    Pros

    If you are a sports fan, there is no better atmosphere. Either in Production or in more traditional 9-5 business disciplines, you will be surrounded with people who enjoy a 20 minute conversation about minute details of last night's game.

    Cons

    Even at the management level, you will work Nights, Weekends and Holidays....you know, when sports are Live. The strategy and culture is very top-down, where the direction of the company is dictated by management.

    Advice to Management

    ESPN Management was always good to me in allowing me to have a life outside of ESPN. I often speak very highly of the management and simply left to pursue other interests.


  2. "Great place to work but salary below market"
