Sports is Life and Life is Sports
Statistics Analyst I (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – July 10, 2018
ESPN is a great place to work as long as you understand the world of sports.
There will be abnormal hours and long-days, there is work on holidays for a lot of people, because that is when sporting events take place. If you're okay with that, then this is a great place to work. Lots of fun being in the office. We focus on sports, so the office always felt like one big team, big celebrations for success and lots of helpful people to help you practice if you need to improve.
Starting out as a PTE can be tough, as the amount of hours can vary pretty greatly once you get into the slower months for the sports industry. However, ESPN does like to promote from within and would much rather help current employees move up within their systems.
Overall, I had a great experience working here and only left to relocate with my SO for an opportunity they couldn't pass up. If I am ever back in CT, I would love to be a part of this company again.
