    I worked at Atlanta Hawks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    While I was an intern, I was allowed to volunteer through all departments. My supervisors were very open minded

    Cons

    A bit too little direction. Days on end without projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the internship program, but offer it to recent graduates (don't just require course credit!)

    Great ride.

    I worked at Atlanta Hawks

    Pros

    Great employees with a lot of character. Going to work everyday is actually fun. There are definitely perks if you like basketball.

    Cons

    I would say the biggest con would be the separation of sales and other departments. There's definitely a divide but apparently that's how it is at every company that isn't strictly sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees love their jobs so they are ambassadors for the brand.

    I worked at Atlanta Hawks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. A place with good benefits and a family dynamic that I have never seen before. They like to promote sales people from within. Yes, you can get good free tickets to their games and sometimes concerts at Philips Arena. Around holidays everyone really gets in the spirit and decorates the offices as well as having company outings to blow off steam. But there are people who work really hard here. Everyone greets you with a smile.

    Cons

    One of the stranger things about working with the Atlanta Hawks is that most of the employees don't actually work in the arena, they have to constantly walk up and down the street from their office to arena. Working in sports can also feel like a 24/7 job with the long hours from 9:00 to end of games/concerts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I noticed there were a lot of young people trying to "make it" into the leadership roles. I'd suggest more incentives to keep those workers.

    I worked at Atlanta Hawks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The HR Manager was very helpful and instrumental in ensuring that the internship was a learning experience and that interns in the HR department get the most of their time there. The HR team is very flexible with the hours you can work.

    Discounted tickets to events happening in Philips Arena. Great area to work in.

    Cons

    Summer interns don't get the full experience because basketball season is over.

    I worked at Atlanta Hawks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for an NBA team is a very exciting job that give you access to wonderful experiences that you cannot gain from other employers.

    Cons

    Working weeknights and weekends but that comes with the territory of working for an NBA team. You have to expect that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management was very open. Held numerous town hall meetings with the staff and gave the staff to interact with the players during several annual events.
