    As with baseball in general, way too political.

    I worked at Houston Astros as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Met some of the greatest guys. There is nothing better than playing the game you love with some of the nicest guys in the sport.

    Cons

    Never given an opportunity. I was told i was too old at age 24. I went on to Independent baseball had had a high level of success in a league with more talent than the one i was placed in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone is given a large signing bonus, does not mean they will be the best or hardest working player. Figure it out. The hardest working players are your college athletes that had to go through the college experience. When releasing people, have merit and don't call a 23 or 24 year old too old; especially when I was never sent down and led the team in a number of categories.

    I worked at Houston Astros

    Pros

    You get to work for a major league baseball team, even if they are the worst in the league. It's a unique chance to see inside the machine.

    Cons

    Management isn't fair to interns - they are unpaid and overworked. The perks presented in interviews and informationals don't live up to their potential.

    I worked at Houston Astros

    Pros

    Get to say you work for a pro sports team
    You get to go to games and other events, unless you have to work them

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of hours
    Horrible Pay
    Political place to work ( as are most employers)
    Very segregated work place
    Team sucks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better. A happy employee is a better working employee. Find people who actually want to work together and get along
