    I worked at Univision full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are really hard working, and all try to do their jobs as best as possible given the environment
    Great clients and growing Hispanic market
    Pay is on par with other agencies

    Cons

    Poor senior management
    Overworking staff without recognition
    Hard to be promoted and grow
    Very little company culture
    Small teams can be extremely cliquey

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people earlier on so they won't want to leave. Offer recognition for the entire team when it is deserved, not just the top players. Make sure your account executives aren't spending hours out to lunch while their coordinators do all of the work

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

    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.

    401 K, networking, and might get lucky if knows someone

    Cons

    no growth, training , no HR

    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.

    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.
