    Lies. Egos. Lack of leadership.

    Pros

    It’s the “cool” job that your friends and family get to brag about. Getting to know fighters as they go from their first fight to champions is cool to be part of the journey.

    Cons

    The amount of lies employees are told on a daily basis is absurd. There is zero leadership or guidance. Executives really only pay attention to you if you are sleeping with them and that also earns you a better bonus pay. Egos are off the charts. President makes irrational decisions off the cuff with zero opportunity to have a conversation about a situation. HR is a joke! Sexual harassment is accepted and expected. Forget work/life balance. It’s frowned upon to take time off but they also don’t roll over or pay out vacation. There’s no sense to the pay scale or bonus structure. No career advancement. Very cliquey. Expected to be on and answer your phone and email 24/7, 365 days a year. WME has no idea about the sport, they don’t care about understanding it. They lay people off every November so the whole company is usually on pins and needles. It’s definitely a place where it feels more like a cult and forced to drink the kool-aid than an actual corporate, leadership driven business.

    Dream job ruined by deplorable work environment

    Jun 4, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I got to travel all over the country and was on the road essentially every two weeks. I worked directly with talent and learned invaluable skills for my field.

    Cons

    Very, very toxic work environment where politics reign supreme. The company is transitioning from a 'family business' mentality to a corporate environment, so tensions are high and company culture is non-existent. Upper level management seems more interested in promoting themselves instead of their subordinates. People with different ideas and opinions are seen as threats and you'll notice a trend where those certain people will disappear from the company. You won't move up unless someone quits. Every department is territorial. Terrible pay for the amount of hours you work - especially on event week. Bonuses are a joke and don't expect to be able to use any of your vacation. You're constantly reminded 'how lucky you are to be working for such a great company' when they've cleared f-d you on pay, hours, job duties.

    Decent Company, Horrible Management

    Pros

    Every now and then, tickets to local Vegas events. Travel is only in certain depts so can't count on that.

    Cons

    Where to begin...Overworked and Underpaid is the company mantra. "Do more with less" is the Managers / Directors overwhelming response to everything. It's extremely difficult to get promoted. I've seen people here for over 8+ years that haven't moved an inch and not because they haven't wanted to, Management is so focused on trying to make themselves look better.

    Pros

    It's the UFC. It's and international sports entity so things can change very quickly. The travel, if you were part of that group, was very cool. Some smart and kind people work there.

    Cons

    There is no thought to developing a company culture and it has turned from a well financed start up into more of a corporate entity.

    Good Product; Not So Good Work Environment

    Dec 11, 2014 - Sponsorship Ad Sales in Las Vegas, NV
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Exciting arena-based product with lots of entertainment cachet! Most people like and/or respect the TV and experiential product. Some very nice, hard-working and sweet-natured people work there. Some not so nice and not that talented too.

    Cons

    No relocation packages, no severance packages (regardless of years of service), notorious fine-tooth-comb review of expense reports, no raises or year-over-year automatic increases and a barely functioning HR department (because it's disemboweled by senior management), and therefore no real grievance process.

    Severe cost cuts, lack of transparency, high turn over, high debt before and after new ownership.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Amazing product, strong leadership in terms of president and CEO experience. Previous CEO was much more culture and family oriented. New CEO and leadership are cutting ties with long-time leaders of the company.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and increased cost cuts are leading to multiple senior staff resignations and massive lay-offs (higher than reported in the press)

    Executive management team is stellar. Dana and Lorenzo are visionaries

    Cons

    Departments are territorial. Middle management should be more like Dana and Lorenzo
