No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Has quite a few very talented people and pretty cool cafeteria since the campus doesn't have too much food around.

Cons

Very micro-managed environment. Do your job and don't ask questions even if they could help improve the company and efficiencies.

    I worked at HSN full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice campus and employee discount
    Worked with a lot of great people and made a lot of friends

    Cons

    My supervisor was a woman who would micromanage every little aspect of her team, until there was an issue or a problem - then it was all on you. A very poor leader who would bog her team down with distracting busy work, endless meetings, and other distractions from your already very busy days that would often keep you at your desk well into the evening hours.

    There's a palpable sense of hostility that exists between departments at HSN. You get the sense that the only reason anybody cooperates with other teams is because they have too, but won't hesitate to throw other team members under the bus as soon as they can.

    They expect you to be on your Blackberry 24/7/365, or else.

    Very little chance of advancement unless you're a part of the clique or of a certain lifestyle persuasion. Some inexperienced VP's & directors here were hired only because of who on the 5th Floor of the Tower they know, while offering little expertise to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the strengths of your team members and let them loose to do what they know how to do.

    Quit promoting people based only on the crowd they run with. This isn't high school.
