    I worked at Univision full-time

    Pros

    Univision is a big company with big reach, and might be a good fit for someone just looking to punch the clock.

    Cons

    The company is incredibly poorly run, including employees not being added to health insurance properly, freelancers not getting paid, etc. I have never experienced anything quite so bad!

    I worked at Univision as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freelancer, they work with your schedule and you are able to get to the locations with the radio station van

    Cons

    Minimum wage
    No raise, been there for 4+ years
    There's no way to grow in the company.
    Univision is just a brand but don't get fool by it

    Advice to Management

    Help out your current employees before you try to get rid of them and replace them with someone new just to pay low. If it's not broken don't break it. Appreciate your staff more

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

    Pros

    Learned a lot, wore many hats, worked on many of the stories pitched. Fast paced and move up on to bigger markets rather quickly.

    Cons

    Most managers hired their friends (some did not have a journalism background) Also, most of the new talent did not pay their dues and were getting preference as being referrals or friends of the higher management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real journalists, with passion for this career and strong work ethics . Not kids that only want to play TV or being models.

    Pros

    Great advertising sales opportunity to learn, represent, and sell every media form. If you believe in the power of the Latino community, you can preach it everyday. Some good, very smart people are still there making it work.

    Cons

    Bad work environment - always wondering who will be on the chopping block next. "What have you done for me?" feel often. Managing through fear more often than not

    Advice to Management

    If you take care of your employees - your best asset over everything - they will take of bringing in business and caring for your customers. Whether you want to or not, be patient and believe in your people.
