    Very aggressive growth position, flexibility to guide your career path, great benefits, Best in class name recognition, solid core values

    A bee hive environment, can get a bit robotic, HQ location, leadership tends to become disconnected with satalite locations

    HQ should keep in better touch with outposts. Honest reviews of management would be helpful

    Pros

    If you truly love sports, you will fit right in. Everyone in the building is really laid back and outgoing which is nice.

    Cons

    Demanding work schedule for a minimum amount of pay. Daily commute can also become a hassle at certain times.

    Schedule/hours pay could be more competitive, becoming too corporate.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    A near-obsession with ensuring it is staying on the front edge of trends. Smart people everywhere. Crosses many industries and technologies. Appreciated even more when you spend time around other major media, tech and telecoms companies.

    Cons

    Not perfect - no place is. HQ location in semi-rural central CT is tough for many, and without question it does thrive on a culture and people that battle with work-life balance.
