    I have been working at Houston Astros

    Pros

    It's a beautiful place to work. Can't argue with the killer views

    Cons

    Baseball is a tough business. It's long hours for little money. If you don't love it, it's not worth it.

  2. Mediocre Management, at best

    I worked at Houston Astros full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Perks of working in sports, tickets to every game, etc. Definitely a unique experience, and the co-workers were awesome.

    Cons

    Compensation was minimal, as with most entry-level sports positions. The sales department particularly, one of my co-workers calculated that our salary (without any commission, which could be very minimal during the off-season) qualified us for welfare, or food stamps, I can't remember which.

    Advice to Management

    Since I've left, all the management I worked under have been replaced in light of the new ownership. I hear things have turned around significantly.

    Pros

    You are around sports all the time. This could be a negative too depending on the person.
    You get to meet some powerful people.
    The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    Long hours during the season
    Not a lot of transparency
    Under paid compared to other industries outside of sports

    Advice to Management

    Get more transparency. Sometimes it seems like there is no direction. When something goes wrong everyone is blaming the other department for screwing up, take responsibility.
