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

    Pros

    Excellent Team support, Good Benefits (Insurance + Paid Holidays)

    Cons

    Poor Management, No Career Growth ( They hire people from outside than promoting and giving chance to internal candidate), No new projects, Application Support of outdated version, Doesn't think of long term solutions.

    Advice to Management

    CTO of the company really need to think of undertaking the Enterprise Application Team and give opportunity to its own employee rather than hiring from outside. Open Door policy is very much required for the growth & retention of the employee. Current VP doesn't justify the role & provide right guidance to its employee.

  3. "Overall good company to work for but not without some cultural issues in upper management."

    I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    WWE offers great benefits and opportunities to its employees. There's space for vertical as well as horizontal movement for those not set on a career or possibly looking at different options. The company offers its employees a lot ranging from 401K, company parties, great health plan options, and stock options. It also benefits from being on the cutting edge of certain technologies such as a top of the line graphics department, video streaming services, in-house production team, and social media teams, etc. Plenty of opportunity to work overtime if needed.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, your experience may vary. Certain departments are valued more as is natural in some companies, however this is sometimes used as leverage to do what is in their best interest instead of the companies. Reaching out to upper management in more valued departments to get a task done is like pulling teeth. Aware of this departmental favoritism, department heads will simply ignore or defer you to a later time because there is no one you can go to that will help you, despite it being in the best interest of the company. Depending on your department, your work life balance may vary. If you're the type of person who can put their head down, do their work, and not be bothered by the occasional rude attitude by an overly valued employee, you can get far.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourselves accountable. Do what is in the best interest of the company, not yourself. Stamp out departmental favoritism and general rudeness. It is up to those who are managing the department heads that must make sure this mess gets sorted out, its in the best interest of the company.

    I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, collaborative environment. Everyone looks out for each other and there's very little drama or finger pointing.
    Excellent cafeteria and Gym allow for minimal time outside the office during the day. Reasonable working hours (some extra around the big PPVs).

    Cons

    Occasional impulsive "firings" keep people on edge in terms of job security.
    Lack of clear expectations from the top down. Upper management can be more reactive than pro-active.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly define what you expect from your team.
