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.


  2. "ESPN is an exciting place to work, where the company as a whole expects employees to eat/breathe/sleep ESPN culture."

    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.
