Fun job
On Air Talent/Board Op (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMAugust 21, 2019
I had an amazing experience working there. Schedule was the only thing that was hard because you have to work weekends but it's an easy and fun job. My bosses and coworkers were nice and easy to get along with.

Hispanic cultural passion need more diversity inclusion
Assignment Desk Manager (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLAugust 20, 2019
Work at UNIVISION was like a rollercoaster, the excitement to be part of a very important media for the Latino community, but also it was the place where you see some decisions that show favoritism and friendship over professional selection.
Pros
Professionalism
Cons
management communication

Bad move
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) –  Teaneck, NJAugust 16, 2019
This was the worse move I made. These have been the most stressful months of my life! Being micromanaged, can’t take half days. 9-6, working until 10 for 2weeks during Quarter end. Also during month end, leave late as well for 1 week!! Don’t get compensated for the extra time put in. Only 2 weeks vacation. From the network team, most people leave after 2-6 months. Only 2 people have more than 6 months, that says more than I can explain here.

Don't bother
Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 13, 2019
Working for this company has been at times great and other times very unsteady. They are in constant flux trying to get the company sold and lay off people to show a higher bottom line income. I have been given room to do my job with little supervision, which i like and works for me.

Univisión Dallas worst place ever
News Producer (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 11, 2019
An incompetent news director that has no clue on what news is, to the fact that she is more worried in attending social events with her husband than on the logistics and efficiency of her team. Toxic environment of favoritism, and discrimination. The news director Lies consistently and opens files on people she doesn’t like. Univision, please do yourself a favor: remove her from that position.

Exciting Environment, good pay, insufficient technological improvement
Senior Promotions Producer (Former Employee) –  Doral, FL (Miami Metro Area)June 20, 2019
I started working in Univision four years before it was sold to a private equity firm for $14.5 Billion. By then UV had become the supreme undeterred master of the US hispanic market. In terms of its marketing approach UV was extremely wise and consistent in its strategy and it was constantly aiming to increase its market share. The atmosphere was a bit stressful and there were more than a few cliches that made it a bit difficult to get things done efficiently
Pros
Good cafeteria, closeness to nice housing, shopping, etc. Funny colleagues, great facilities
Cons
Deadly competitive environment, too much gossip and sabotage, lack of conceptual dialogue and intelligent plant investment, particularly in post production assets and information systems.

Where dreams go to die
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 7, 2019
Univision is one of the highest ranking networks in the US for Hispanics, it does not feel like you're working for one though. The ideas are dated, there is zero innovation. Everything is being driven by the studios in Mexico. You either abide by their rules or you can go work for someone else.

Information Security Intern
Information Security - Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 29, 2019
A typical day at work begins with a meeting, in which new projects were introduced and the status of current projects was updated. The workplace is quiet. I improved on my database management skills, while feeling relatively little pressure.
Pros
Longer lunch break, quiet/calm environment

Typical corporate company
Camera Operator (Current Employee) –  Doral, FLMay 22, 2019
Univision is a very robotic company. Bottom line is they will do anything to save a few pennies including sacrificing quality. I feel the company is a shell of it's former self.

Erratic, no room for advancement and stressful
media (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 9, 2019
Constant pressure to do more with less and make no mistakes. Laughable raises and told "we have no money" and constant changes in direction and leadership. Constant turnover with no consistency because people are always leaving and people with no experience brought in and you are expected to train them from scratch.

All of this affects morale and you get rewarded with repetitive pep talks and told you are family. Buying into it gets old fast.

Large company but can be cold at time
Technical Director (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 17, 2019
The typical workday is never the same. There is often an emphasis on doing more with a lot less. One is given tools to put a good product on air however there is a lot of pressure to never make mistakes. One learns to be efficient with their time and tasks as the workload asked can be crushing at times but deadlines are always met. Among the workers, there is good chemistry and people look out for one another.
Cons
management highlights errors in public
