    I worked at Univision full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Godo Health insurance and some benefits

    Cons

    Employees with experience doesn't count unless you are friend with the right people. No grow opportunities. Poor management with no management experience whatsoever. There are a lot of preferences between people with the same title.

    Advice to Management

    There is a huge difference between being a líder that being a boss

    I worked at Univision as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They seem to have opportunities as far as internships for students and the staff receives discounts on many things from cell phone bills to Circus Soleil tickets.

    Cons

    They hire alot of inexperienced people. Many of the personnel I met couldnt even hold a conversation with me. The department I worked for was networking/copy team. That department is known for it's high turn over rate due to the low level manager being incompetent. I really didnt see much work, it seemed like every day there was a birthday or something they were celebrating that involved food. The job was a joke. I'm glad I didnt quit my job for this one because that's exactly what my management wanted.

    Apparently they don't pay their temporary employees. I've been waiting for over a month for 2 weeks pay. I've contacted HR and no one has reached out to me.

    Advice to Management

    Do extensive research on who you hire, treat your employees with respect.

    I have been working at Univision full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people still working there

    Cons

    Bad management allow hostile behavior to employees in the daily basics, reduction of benefits, policy to try to fire older employees and bring interns in their positions

    Advice to Management

    Univision was a great company to work some years ago, but after the management was replaced by the fired NBC directors all has changed to a hostile place to work.

    The Human Resources department will try to hide every proven fact of a worker complaint and fail in favor of the manager.

    In the last 4 years mostly all the talent in every department (Artists, Talents, engineers, editors, producers, etc.) have been resigning and getting jobs outside Univision.

    The management creates mandatory courses regularly to allow the to give bad treatment to the employees.

    Right now you can see the sad faces of the employees and the pressure they had to suffer to keep feeding their families, it's just sad.

    The hope of the univision employees is that someday better people can come as managers.

    I worked at Univision full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work/life balance. You are expected to work very late, constantly "reorganizing" and pilling on more work with no bonus or increase. I would not recommend this company to ANYONE!

    Advice to Management

    Be more conscious of good/hard workers. We shouldn't have to work until midnight to be recognized and get promoted.

    Pros

    Fair compensation, if you do not work on the TV production side.

    Cons

    Cascade management style. Do not understand what it is to retain and invest in good talent. Unless you want to move to another department there is no opportunity to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good managers and teach them how to grow and motivate direct reports.

    I worked at Univision full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Initially feel part of a team ...

    Cons

    soon realize everyone is for themselves and will stab you in the back to try to improve themselves.

    Companies, which are most, that allow this are immature at the highest level...

    Pros

    You get to work little to no time, and no one will ever notice. Arrive at 9am and you will be sitting by yourself in the office. Really long lunch breaks.

    Cons

    Nepotism at it's best. No one really knows what they are doing. Super sexist. People have openly slept their way up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that can actually do the job.

    Pros

    Use to be a great company to work for.

    Cons

    With the whole integration, there is TV managers trying to run the radio side of the Bussines . Very different and setting the team to failure. Comps plan nationwide is terrible. Account executives still under the draw against commission structure...

    Advice to Management

    Let each of you focus on what you know. TV people run their media and let radio managers do what they know to do.

    Pros

    Not much, make some good friends, learn about media.

    Cons

    Local Media is not a good place to work for women. Very male dominated and some people address emails with "Gents" hmmm news flash, it's 2016! Unless you are a white male, you won't get anywhere with the new president of local media. He only likes to address men and won't even acknowledge a woman's presence. Even the senior finance team is all men - no female SVP. Digital is the same story. So don't bother to work here if you are of color and/or female. #glassceiling. One last thing I found out: huge pay disparity between genders. A lot of people are soooo underpaid, some 24-yr analyst (guy) paid 6 figures vs someone with MBA and 15yrs+ experience who barely makes same (woman) .... Info straight from HR.

    Advice to Management

    Make it fair, why obsessed on employing people from NBC? Look for more innovating companies and recruits.
