    I worked at ESPN as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a ton of exposure to the different digital products ESPN owns and through the exposure learn a lot about digital marketing as a whole. The people you work with are incredibly friendly and the company has a very casual work atmosphere. They really looked out for the interns and always offered help. I was never afraid to ask questions during a meeting and got a great understanding of the relationships between the marketing team, sales team and sports management team

    Cons

    The beginning was very slow. A lot of what you work on are things you learn as you go so in the beginning it can be difficult to understand what they expect from you. IT can be extremely slow if you have an issue.

    I worked at ESPN as a contractor

    Pros

    Great people and environment, especially if you like sports and that world. Casual work environment and many perks to the job.

    Cons

    Some times tasks or matters can be handled more efficiently. I generally think experience plays a large in figuring those things out.

    I worked at ESPN full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you love sports and technology, it is the perfect place to work. They are always on the cutting-edge of new ways to tell a story.

    Cons

    In house politics between middle and upper management can be very cut throat. All department heads don't always share information and duplicate works gets done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Department heads need to collaborate with each other more.

    Run away. It is a toxic, morale killer. It is not a place for professionals.

    I have been working at ESPN full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work for years. That has changed. They finally got smart enough to give 3 weeks of vacation so you can actually use your Disney passes.

    Cons

    Management is changing direction like a monkey swinging from a tree. Directors and above have a sweet thing going. They are very busy selfishly maneuvering and networking up without a care for the direction of their staff or the company.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with. The compensation was good for a college student. I enjoyed watching sports and getting paid.

    Cons

    The hours working were not the best for a college student. Early mornings and late afternoons. It was hard to get a raise and or a promotion starting off.
