Digital Video Encoding Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTSeptember 14, 2017
Do not work here. All the good executives have moved on to better companies, and now the inmates are running the asylum. Don't walk away from this place, RUN.
Pros
Great benefits.
Cons
Terrible management, complete lack of work/life balance, incredibly political and too many people failing upwards.

Production Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 8, 2017
AE Network is a great place to work. Fast paced with innovators and highly educated individuals that are willing to teach new things. The hardest part is that management and executives are very cut throat.

Average experience
Sales Service Representative (A&E) (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 19, 2017
Not a big fan of the company because of the industry decline, but it was good experience and exposure to a large media outlet. Working in ad sales presented a host of challenges and opportunities, but ultimately it wasn't the right place for me.

Finance (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 7, 2017
I enjoy working with a lot of the people at A+E but the company needs some revamping to withstand the hard times in Media. The ratings are not doing well so the company's profitability is suffering.

This workplace is laid back, but you have to work hard and be flexible. You work with your team as well as other teams, and it helps to be friendly and motivated.

Top heavy and not enough staff to do the work
Sr. Director of Marketing (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 2, 2017
Work/life balance inexistent. Employees work in silos. Very little cross functional communication even within same department. Too much hiring from outside the company at the expense of grooming and cultivating employees from within.
Pros
Good health benefits
Cons
Too many chefs not enough people to execute

Producer (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTNovember 17, 2016
people are wonderful here but upper management has a hard time communicating down to the people who their decisions affect the most. They try to provide a supportive work environment...so A for effort?

Productive and Fun Work Place
Administrative Assistant - Client Services (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTOctober 28, 2016
During the new work calendar year, work in very busy with updated all spreadsheets and making sure the new budgets for the year are calculated correctly. On a daily base I can have either a full 8 hour work day or some days when work is slow I can have a full 5 hour work day. Employees are very helpful when working on projects and vise versa. I enjoy working with others especially when the team is fully committed to getting the job done. A&E is all about having fun and enjoying yourself no matter how hard things can be. Love that everyone is so joyful so when you might have a not so good day there is more than enough people to help make that better.

Director of Production (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 21, 2016
No work life balance, management is not realistic. Low budgets and high expectations are a real problem. Wasted time on revisions. Compensation is ok, benefits are great.

Scheduling Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 2, 2016
A&E Networks is a forward thinking company whose focus is on owning content and having a global reach. There are many facets to the company. Working in program scheduling has provided me with a creative background and an eye for detail. As much as I enjoy the challenging work and the job itself, the commute to New York is expensive and time consuming. I would prefer to find employment in my home state of New Jersey.
Pros
Health benefits; pension; 401k
Cons
Manhattan location
