Recurring Remote Graphics Interface Coordinator (Current Employee), Everywhere sports happenOctober 14, 2014
If you can handle being a 'road dog', there's nowhere better than the World Wide Leader. A typical day is 8 hours of humping it, then you do live TV for 3+ hours. I love it!
Great people to work with, and you see different folks every week, but a lot of them you see every week.

Senior Researcher (Former Employee), Bristol, CTOctober 10, 2014
and it will be a great place to work...otherwise it will be horrible. CT is in the middle of nowhere so make sure you have a reason to go other than ESPN. The luster wears off quite quickly.

Audio Technician (Current Employee), Pullman, WASeptember 30, 2014
Pros: friendly people
Cons: when it breaks its a problem
The people are amazing. But you have to be a well motivated person that catches on quickly. There are time limits all the time that we need to fulfill. There are times when we're running around in the snow and rain trying to get everything done freezing cold, and there are times where everything is so smooth that the world is good. But all in all its – more... a fun place to be. – less

Fun place to work at with sports for everyone
Multimedia Editor (Current Employee), Bristol, CTSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: sports
ESPN is a fun place to work and just like any other job it has its balance of the good, the bad, and the ugly. A typical day at work varies depending on the shift. Morning shift work tends to be more related to breaking news and analysis on what happened in the night before in the sports world. Mid day and Night shifts tend to be more focus on highlights – more... of the day, and company shows.
I've learned a lot working for this company. Editorial guide lines, script-writing, recording video, producing hits, video-editing, administration, etc.
Management varies in each company, and this is no different. I have been a part of one department and cannot testified for the overall management of the company.
I have been blessed to have fantastic co-workers during my time at ESPN. From day one, they were very attentive and help me learn throughout the way.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to travel to sporting events for work. – less

Host Life
Host/Host Trainer (Current Employee), Anaheim, CAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free lunch when captain/training, fun entry to disneyland
Cons: low pay
A typical day at work consist of greeting guest hello and goodbye, seating guest at tables, accommodate their needs, ensure servers are about to handle multiple tables at a time

I've learned to be patience with others, how to handle angry guest and ensure the host stand has communication and works effectively.

Management is a huge help with angry – more... guest and when dealing with events that are occurring at our faculty.

The hardest part of the job is dealing when guest whom are consist on their stand point.

The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to communicate with guest throughout the shift who come from all over the world. – less

Great place to work
Media Editor (Current Employee), Bristol, CTJuly 23, 2014
Pros: exciting sports media company
Cons: ability for growth and development vary greatly from department to department
Overall, ESPN is a great company to work for. But the one thing that'll determine your satisfaction is which department you work for. There are many exciting departments with lots going on and where you're rewarded for your hard work with promotions. But there are departments where your career can come to a standstill with nowhere to go. Although they – more... promote moving about the company from one position to another, this is easier said than done. If you land in the right department, there is no better place to work in central CT than ESPN. – less

Fun job, grinding hours.
Video Editor (Former Employee), Bristol, CTMay 23, 2014
Was at ESPN for 8 years. Given the nature of the business, it was very difficult to procure a day time shift. Working all those late night hours was fine when I was straight out of college but it was not conducive to family life once my child was born. Your personal relationships will also be non-existent as your job is expected to be your everything. – more... Very little time for any type of social life. – less

I have been at ESPN Customer Care for a little over three years. It is a fun place to work. I do emails for customer care and you get to deal with different situations, no situation is the same.
