    Pros

    Professional sports team, great atmosphere, international recognition. There is plenty of exposure to executives, and a great chance you can "put your name out there"

    Cons

    work-life difficulties, "good old boys club." Other than that, there is not much to complain about. The Human Resources department is a nightmare however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.
