    I have been working at Univision full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company's mission and commitment to community is what attracts people to UCI. The employees and family environment keep employees loyal to UCI. It's definitely not for the faint or weak of "work ethic" so this allows those who work hard to shine. Old school local leadership was replaced with visionary and inclusive leader.

    Cons

    Like all media companies, it's rough time. It's not fair to say things are bad only at UCI or that they don't pay well.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employee retention.

    There needs to be a better salary payment for industry professionals.

    Weekly guest speakers who really give a good overview of how much the company values your role as well as discusses their line of work.

    Create more interesting hands-on events for interns to learn more about the industry.

    Pros

    Great people, fast paced environment. Projects and clients are fun to work with. Teams are structured for inner-departmental learning. Working in tandem with NY office is fluid.

    Cons

    Ever changing corporate structure can be challenging but also keeps you on your toes and working at your best to shine through.

    I worked at Univision (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It remains the biggest spanish-speaking website for the US Hispanic market, which means it is a reliable source of information and entertainment. And, at the same time, it gathers a really relevant community of consumers. So, if you want to be part of something big on the digital front, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    The digital landscape is in continuous and rapid change, and the Company hasn't changed with it as fast as it should be. Since it's such a huge company, it takes a while for all it's parts to steer simultaneously. So it may be a bit too bureaucratic for it´s own good.
