    I have been working at ESPN full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Mega multi platform powerhouse leading sports media category. Passionate people. Enormous marketplace reach and prestige. Fair and balanced culture. Innovates within their core and where they must. Creative influencer. Stability due to legacy subscription model and league partnerships.

    Cons

    Long term strategic vision. Can't see beyond bat and ball sports. Organization remains driven by TV. Driven by affiliate, sales, programming and product. Marketing has minimal influence beyond traditional advertising. Millennial a aren't as engaged as the previous generation. Leadership is driven by a good old boys network from within. Challenged with seeing bigger picture largely due to a lack of diverse, experienced talent outside the organization, traditional media and sports. Extremely low pay as they value their brand to influence outsiders to take far below market value. Bonuses are laughable regardless how well the company performs. Doesn't move it people around to grow and develop their skill set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Broaden long term thinking, executive talent pool and innovative risk taking beyond TV. Good talent costs money and requires growth opportunity. Move your people around and higher the best and brightest externally to move the company forward.
