    Pros

    The job itself gives you the opportunity to travel a few times a year which was great. Also, the perks of the event shows and meeting celebrities.

    Cons

    The insecurity of lay-offs happening through the entire company and whole departments being let go at moments notice. Very unstable environment. ONLINE DEPARTMENT all let go, leaving only 3 producers. PROGRAMMING DEPT same thing. ENTIRE SAL Y PIMIENTA DEPT. laid-off after show cancellation. New show DALE REPLAY lasted 3 weeks. What kind of business is this?!

    Advice to Management

    Make a better business plan so you don't have to let go so many employees.

    Advice to Management

    Think of your employees, and your audience first as it seems you do not care about the product you offer but the bottom line...this what one reads in Indeed...
    Univision one hears it was a great company to work for. Growth and manager changes have derail its commitments to their long time loyal employees, viewers, and values. Non-hispanic top executive leaders care more about the bottom line, money, than they care about the service they provide to spanish audiences. They cut services and jobs just to make the numbers look good in their P&L. These cuts do not make sense as these changes demonstrate the lack of sensitivity to the audience they target. Removing their News for the entire Puerto Rico division showed just that. Hiring inexperienced college students to reduce cost which in the long run cost more as employees get discouraged, nervous, and they start looking elsewhere and the revolving door and constant retraining new employees keeps growing. If one wants a company as stepping stone, yes, by all means use Univision. You will learn but do not think one will last as there is no perks to keep you around unless you know somebody in the top executive bubble, as they call it.

    Pros

    Being able to work with others who are passionate helps the working environment.

    Cons

    Low pay and heavy workload. There is not enough attention to employees to keep them satisfied in their positions. They always tend to try to do more with less, giving a heavier workload without compensating them for the extra work. No recognition for any work done, and almost no opportunity for growth. Management needs to be evaluated, some are not up to the task to manage or do not know how to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employee needs and wants in career path. Work with employees to insure that they are valued and that their work matters.
