Incredible

Sponsor Service Associate (Former Employee)
Coral Gables, FL

I worked at IMG Worldwide full-time for less than a year

ProsThe team was very helpful and came together when it counts the most to complete every task that arose.
We had the opportunity to assist sponsors, vendors, and world class athletes with a great experience.

ConsSome of the challenges is scheduling team members to work critical shifts during the tournament. The opportunity to enjoy the event itself was not available.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider work-life balance

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Marketing (temp)

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at IMG Worldwide as a contractor for less than a year

ProsProfessionalism, networking, good on resume, they definitely know what they are doing

Consless emphasis on personal development

Advice to Senior ManagementHard to say because there are large number of "management" positions within the company, overall I'd like to say mix up flexibility and supervision a little bit more so your employee can grow better and contribute more to the company

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fun while it lasted...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at IMG Worldwide

ProsThis place looks great on a resume. The crap that you may have to deal with isn't as bad as putting IMG on your resume

ConsThere were really no downsides persay, I mean you're gonna work really hard, but they pay you well, and the experience is priceless.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't expect to be clued in on what is happening with your career. It's a get in, shake things up and get out sort of place. Lots of politics!

NA

Intern (Former Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I worked at IMG Worldwide

ProsGreat environment to be aroud if you love sports. Evaryone there has at least that in common. Very entrepreneurial environment and made for self starters.

ConsThe pay for lower level employees is less than optimal. Some people in the company were not qualified other than the fact they liked sports.

Great on the resume

Account Director (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at IMG Worldwide

ProsImpressive assets and history of leadership in sports & entertainment marketing and management. Hugely respected brand, will provide me with credibility and gravitas for my next stop. Smart people, with lots of experience and contacts

ConsThey are still going through a business transformation form the old IMG of the McCormack era to the vision held by Ted Forstmann. As a result there are some bumpy times and constantly revolving senior leadership.

The many businesses (fashion, media, sports, talent, etc) are very independent & isolated, so clients don't always get the larger benefits of working with IMG.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore attention to communicating with the staff on larger issues, value people skills among your senior business leaders. People do the work
