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

    Pros

    Never a dull momment, fast paced and lots of celebrities.

    Cons

    Expected to be available 24/7, if not, your written up. Blame for poor sales flies around to everyone and once they've burnt you out, they fire you. I see it happen several times a week, The turnover is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to handle positions.

    I have been working at HSN full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Creative, high energy, great salary ranges. I like the diversity there as well...lots of different people from all walks of life work here. I highly recommend. You can truly make a career out of working for HSN. Huge campus in the St. Pete Fl area.

    Cons

    lots of office politics, only one location in the country...St. Pete florida, so it's pretty limited if you want to work for them but live somewhere else. This is the biggest downside of working for HSN...you can't relocate and keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    Create more of a culture that doesn't include all the politics to get to the top. it seems you need to be :in good" with certain people in order to really get the internal jobs.
