    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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers. Good work environment and good benefits like life insurance and tuition.

    Cons

    Despotic and nepotistic management. Demands insane amount of time and dedication. Difficult to growth if you are no close friend with high level managers which makes Univision surprisingly discriminatory. Constant lay offs and renovation. Most of the coworkers complain about the same.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the work of the employees by merit and not by friendship.

    Pros

    Overall, fast paced and deadline oriented culture with a variety of diverse backgrounds (both academic and professional) with well rounded co workers.

    Cons

    Corporate America to the max. No gray area; purely black and white. If you have never been exposed to office politics or need some experience, UCI is a great training battlefield for that!

    Bottom line: Several business units are not on the same page and there is much internal conflict. HR is clearly understaffed therefore level your expectations.

    Unfortunately, there are many cliques within this company were certain genders and (even ethnic backgrounds) are treated differently purely for promotional purposes.

    Advice to Management

    The millennial workforce outgrows the clearly overwhelmed baby boomer staff. UCI is 100% textbook definition of a stepping stone career move, therefore expect a rise in your employee turnover rate (22 - 27) over the years to come.

    For a company that has been alive for so long, there is no advice to give but expect UCI to be as they say, "another revolving door" company against your competitors within the industry.

    treat people better

    Pros

    Some of the greatest people I've worked with I met at Univision.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the best tend to leave and you are left with a concentration of bad management and questionable ethics. The IPO that never seems to happen drives slashing year after year. New revenue streams are almost nonexistent and cutting back and squeezing are rampant. IT decided to outsource most of the department and lost a great deal of talent. I truly hope things change for the good ones that still remain.

    Advice to Management

    People will want to work harder for a great leader. You can only go so far with fear and threats. Perhaps find someone to lead HR that aligns with humanity.

    Pros

    The people that work here are extremely knowledgeable, very dedicated, loyal and delightful to work with. You learn so much from.

    There people here willing to take you under their wings and mentor you. They will help you grow professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Some of these same employees are under paid and under appreciated.

    No on-boarding process or proper training in place

    Upper management doesn't have a full understanding of the work load and what it entails to get it done

    Advice to Management

    You need to change your processes or you will continue to have dissatisfied employees. You don't want to continue to lose talented people. These are people not numbers. Be interested in their professional growth, invest in them. This type of interest is rare now a days but it is appreciated!
