    I worked at Sports Illustrated part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work with great people on great projects. They work on some really cool stories and give great opportunities.

    Cons

    Sometimes the office moves a little slowly and there isn't much to do, even though there should be.

    Advice to Management

    Get the interns and younger people involved more, even if it's just basic things.

    Pros

    Great being able to say I worked for a legacy company

    Cons

    Company that desperately wants to become a digital brand but absolutely no idea how. Employees in every department from sales to editorial are treated as if they are disposable. There is no one who has the background to turn this from a print to a video company.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees on the front lines. Your senior management should have yearly reviews. Maybe then you could figure out how to beat your competitiors. There is absolutely TO company culture. It breeds contempt.

    Pros

    Sports business is fun. Senior clients will take your calls. Legendary legacy. A brand name that benefits the business in numerous ways

    Cons

    Industry is cratering. Very difficult to turn around this ship. Video is king and all of SI's competition has access to video that SI does not.

    Advice to Management

    Transformational change is needed not incremental steps

    I have been working at Sports Illustrated full-time

    Pros

    Location, small teams that take on a lot of responsibility so learn so much about the business.

    Pros

    Big company, good work/life balance. free weekly magazine

    Too slow for decision making. It seems they still live in 1970's when paper/magazine were the only editorial platform.
