    Pros

    The summer internship experience was very rewarding and offered ample opportunity to explore the areas I was interested in. Everyone I interacted with was friendly, and more than willing to help with my personal growth. I really would recommend working for this company.

    Cons

    As a summer intern you do not get paid. This was a major downside for me, but I did receive school credit. With that said, the experience was one of the best I have had as an intern.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    WWE is an amazing place to work. Executive management expects the best - only those that can keep up and deliver make it. There is a true collaborative environment that's rare in any industry - the staff cares about each other and the brand. I've never seen any organization have such passion for its fans - it's amazing.

    Cons

    If you can't keep up you are quickly left behind. Work / life balance is tough. Sometimes excellence demands sacrifice, and that can be difficult to handle at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the fans and you'll always succeed. Work / life balance issue needs to be addressed.

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people there are highly motivated, talented and care about doing a great job. The office has everything from cafeteria to gym. Live events and people were great. Some tremendous management at times. Overall great experience

    Cons

    There were a few who just "didn't get it" and some managers and dept. heads are clueless how to deal with people. There were more than a couple department heads who talked down to employees and walked around with their nose in the air. The ones you suspect would be arrogant were the most professional. Others had to "show" or tell you how important they were. Long hours and there really is no life outside WWE

    Advice to Management

    Find people who know what they're doing and stick with them!

    Pros

    Great work colleagues, fast paced work environment, creative work, great benefits, challenging projects, free gym.

    Cons

    Communication issues, long hours, "hurry up and wait" work cycle, last second changes and demands, not a very inspiring physical work environment (production facility).

    Pros

    Talented/passionate employees. Really generous benefits. Great overall culture.

    Cons

    Perception we are only a "wrestling" company. True leadership not valued-- the people closest to Vince are highly political and are self-serving. Communications from the highest levels is sporadic (we never hear directly from Vince, Michelle Wilson or George Barrios)

    Advice to Management

    Have to do a better job of bringing people on the journey. We believe in what we are doing but we get more information from the dirt sheets and Yahoo Finance than anything from our internal communications.

    Pros

    WWE is a great place to work if you’re looking to advance your career, be challenged on a daily basis and work in a fun, fast-paced environment. Employees are rewarded and recognized for their hard work. There's also a great sense of accomplishment among employees. It's a great feeling knowing you're making a real impact to the business.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is definitely something that’s difficult to manage.

    Pros

    fun, meet a lot of people, you get to learn new experiences and do different things like cashier, greeter, runner, floor

    Cons

    the cons were fast paced, angry customers, not being able to solve problems that were out of my control and getting blamed by the customers for it

    Advice to Management

    my only advice is to keep doing what you're doing because you guys provide a safe and fun work place and I would definently love to work with them again
