    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.

    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.

    I have been working at World Wrestling Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working for WWE is a new adventure everyday. As a producer in television, WWE allows for growth on every level of the job: writing, editing, directing, producing, etc. A hands-on environment where it's employees are able to experiment and come up with new and creative means of illustrating the stories that 'put smiles on people's faces,' as we are proud to say. It's an open environment that allows employees to apply themselves and I can say in all my years here, I've grown exponentially in every facet and have become far more confident and prepared no matter what the task or situation.

    Cons

    While some internal communication can be improved upon, WWE is focused on developing and improving on ever facet of it's business everyday.

    Pros

    Very innovative forward-thinking company who is on the cutting edge of digital media trends. Very clear vision and strategy that is communicated well throughout the organization. If you work hard and contribute positively, you will be rewarded well.

    Cons

    Because WWE is producing live content almost every day, it can be chaotic at times. But with that chaos comes passionate employees (and fans) who are excited about what they do.
