    Pros

    You get to be in a fast paced industry where you're from day one put in the action. Things are as you see on TV and they make good use of you and your skills.

    Cons

    You can very easily be forgotten as there is a big crew and fast paced work. There's a clear division in between suits and technical workers, with very little career path between worlds.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Have a career option for those starting so they can keep progressing inside the company. The experience you gain putting the shows together can translate well to the business side.

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing team, some of the best I've ever worked with. Plenty of resources for new projects, can get new things to market quickly and try them on huge audiences. Great benefits and decent work environment.

    Cons

    Heavy internal office politics, rapid shifts in direction and leadership staffing. When you get support, you get full support. When you don't, you never know why. When you lose support, it's a total mystery. Lots of things get built and never launched.

    Advice to Management

    Look to elevate from within before you go outside. Lots of great minds get passed over in favor of outsiders with great resumes who end up not sticking around. Bungee-bosses.

    Pros

    Loved working with these amazing, and dynamic people! Everyone was friendly and always willing to lend a hand or explain something if I wasn't clear on what to do.

    Cons

    Late nights are a part of the job, and they're frequent

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of passion from the digital team.

    Cons

    There are real cancers on the digital team. Mean spirited people who are more concerned about posting their political opinions on Facebook than answering an email. Same people get promoted every year while it seems those who work the most never grow.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who are talented. Don't wait for them to leave or become unhappy in their position.

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Atmosphere is never boring, consistently exciting place to be and you work with fascinating people day in and day out.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Opportunities to advance can be limited and slightly disheartening over time.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for more spots. Most temp workers there quickly lost interest staying longterm otherwise.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, friendly and intelligent co workers, lots to do and a lot you can learn off your peers and senior managers. Great place to start your career and get to know the ins and outs of the entertainment world

    Cons

    work-life balance is non existent, very political and stressful environment and executive managers control everything and will make decisions based off business need not necessarily logical.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within your company, hire more individuals who do the work and not those who just sit and talk. Promote macro-management atmosphere rather than micro-management.

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Great company. Great resources, they pay well and make you earn every dime. Lots of different aspects to the business so you will learn a lot by being exposed to the different business units.

    Cons

    Tough culture and definitely not for everyone. Very demanding schedule and work life balance is a struggle. Company direction can change on a dime.

    Advice to Management

    Executive turnover can be very high at times and the constant change leads to a lot of wheel spinning. Reduce the bottleneck of information at the C level and push more responsibility out to middle management.
