    I worked at Univision (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to many facets of the business and industry. Responsibilities are merit based - upper level management is willing to involve you on key projects once you prove your worth to the team.

    Cons

    Industry is at a cross roads and entire corporation seems to be in a panic. HQ is VERY corporate and buttoned up. Interdepartmental head-butting leads to communication breakdown and stalling of projects that require cooperation.

    Advice to Management

    Interdepartmental consistency and communication can be improved. At times it seems like employees and departments are not on the same page regarding the fundamental vision for the corporation.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Initially feel part of a team ...

    Cons

    soon realize everyone is for themselves and will stab you in the back to try to improve themselves.

    Companies, which are most, that allow this are immature at the highest level...

    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.

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

    Pros

    You get to work little to no time, and no one will ever notice. Arrive at 9am and you will be sitting by yourself in the office. Really long lunch breaks.

    Cons

    Nepotism at it's best. No one really knows what they are doing. Super sexist. People have openly slept their way up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that can actually do the job.

    the position is 100% commission leaving you with making decent money some months and very little money other months. it all depends on how much you sell
