    I worked at WWE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You learn a ton ; it’s fast paced and a globally recognized brand ; opportunities for tons of travel

    Cons

    The atmosphere is toxic - your ascent up the ladder is based on who you’ve managed to become friends with rather than talent. It is the most political, backstabbing atmosphere I can imagine. There is never a clear direction for the company. There is little communication between departments or from the management level. Management constantly dumps blame off on people below them and rarely holds themselves accountable....

    Advice to Management

        I worked at WWE full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Lots of time off Flexible schedule depending on your work and department Good Stock Plan and 401K plan. Good insurance. Great opportunity to work with production equipment.

        Cons

        The Company makes billions but pays pennies NO DIVERSITY AT THE STUDIO FOR MINORITIES. No bonuses Takes a while to move up unless you luck up Knew two women who felt harassed but the accused guy still works there

        Advice to Management

        Talk to the higher-ups about paying people better wages. Stop giving people 1 million different jobs to do, just hire more people. Hire more black people, and hire more women.

        I worked at WWE full-time

        Pros

        As a lifelong fan of the product, it was always really cool to be writing professional wrestling (even if that was a taboo phrase in the office). Also, some genuinely interesting and talented writers on staff which often were the highlights of the long days.

        Cons

        An environment of Fear: The main issue comes from the very top, Vince is losing his grip in his old age. He operates and attempts to "motivate" staff through fear. Thus everyone is constantly on edge afraid of being terminated and thus treat those under them the same way quick to throw anyone under the bus in an attempt to save their own jobs. During my time there I had seen people of varying levels fired for comma...

        Advice to Management

        Be honest and upfront about what the hours and the responsibilities of the job entail during the interview process as opposed to blindsiding new staff members with responsibilities and then throwing the fact that "these are billable hours as a rationale" for it. Streamline workflow allowing writers autonomy to know specifically what is being asked o them and then trust they will do it. Don't attempt to cover up the...
