    Pros

    People are cool and management is relaxed. Hours are relaxed nobody looking down your throat counting minutes. Do a good job and people dont care how long you work.

    Cons

    There isnt much going on for a young person in the hartford/bristol area. Theres somewhat of a lack of structure from above, takes a very long time for big projects to develop

    Pros

    Coming to work everyday is exciting, offers excellent benefits, top-notch facilities, and unrivaled opportunity for networking in the sports industry.

    Cons

    Consumes your life, promotions are difficult to come by unless you are very long tenured, it's a corporation and while it sounds glamorous it is a job.

    Pros

    You learn so much through your work and they switch you on projects/accounts so that you are never bored. I am able to work from home as needed and never are expected to work on the weekends.

    Cons

    A lot of people need to be fired and replaced with people who are younger, brighter, and able to come up with better ways to improve current processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull for more promotions, not just assignments.
