    I have been working at FOX Sports full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The admins and supervisors are nice.

    Cons

    The hours are not good. High level management does not care and there is very little diversity in their ranks. HR is a dinosaur and makes some very unethical decisions. It's bad. If you get in don't stay long, this place is not run well. The pay is low.

    I worked at FOX Sports full-time

    Pros

    Employees are creative, hard-working and collaborative.
    Working in sports is exciting.
    Pay is decent.
    Occasionally get free swag.

    Cons

    Micro-management from top down.
    Everyone is walking around on egg shells.
    There is no constructive feedback, only vague, unfocused criticism and conflicting demands.
    There is no onsite HR department to intervene.

    Advice to Management

    More positive feedback, treat your employees people rather than robots.
    Be more clear about goals, expectations.
    Don't make huge responsibility changes without involving the people who will actually be doing the work.

    Pros

    Get to work in sports, create a successful broadcast, and get to work with like minded people.

    If you like performing under pressure, this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Working as a freelancer, the jobs can vary. You can work for an entire week and then not get any work the next week. So having a second gig is preferred.

    Advice to Management

    Try to schedule your freelancers consistently so that they can have a repeated source of income.
