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

    Pros

    None-Trust me! It has been a tough journey at this Company. I am a hard worker and this place is nothing but a huge disappointment.

    Cons

    1. This company underpays at all levels below VP.
    2. Management is not flexible with work schedule. Working hours 9-6pm plus even more, no exceptions. No summer perks.
    3. There are two people who dominate the floor in NJ office and they need no introduction. They make you feel that they are the only one that work hard.
    4. Socialization among peers is frowned upon but this rule does not apply to the two people I mentioned above who are constantly behind closed door gossiping.
    5. Constant restructuring - this is where most dollars are spent. Do not get any ideas here, only management get good deals.
    6. In the name of restructuring, they let go of employees just because they cant work with them or dislike.
    7. Employees are not fed appropriately during busy periods if they happen to work late-night (i.e 10-11pm). If they do happen to feed you - they can only afford Chinese or pizza.
    8. Most VPs and Directors at top level get away with doing minimum work. Often they do not even understand the business.
    9. The Company is unethical in certain practices.
    10. Expect no raises or bonus but expect additional work due to layoffs.
    11. The Company has unprofessional people who love to yell (via phone, e-mail, meetings) at you as a result employee morale is not that great.
    12. No holiday perks or should I say lack of holiday spirit - meaning no cash, no gifts, no party. They basically cater some appetizer and drop it at each floor.
    13. Growth equates to more work and responsibilities and not raise in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and treat them as Humans, it will only add to growth of the company.

    I worked at Univision full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with direct reports; enjoyed working with local station employees; opportunity to continue my education; good benefits

    Cons

    The company was not the same after it was sold. It went from a company about the employees to money, money, money. They started getting rid of their long term employees and replacing them with VP's. It became a joke whenever we got a new email announcing a new VP.

    Advice to Management

    Less about making a dollar and more about the employees.

    Pros

    You actually get to work than just pushing paper or misc. tasks .

We millenials may be destroying what ever archaic concepts you have be it's us who contribute most in this economy so it should a voice that has priority as well .

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideals

    Pros

    Everyone shares the desire to serve the needs and encourage the dreams of Hispanic Americans. Diverse team with many female leaders

    Cons

    Work hard (and don't) play hard mentality, no job flexibility, old school corporate philosophy. Lacking strategic vision from the top in tough times

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the core of the company - Hispanics. Portfolio strategy of diversification into non-core business is distracting from the mothership, Univision
