    I worked at Boston Red Sox full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are going to work evening and weekends, what a place to do so. A dynamic group of team players. Folks truly collaborate and success and failures are collective. Great exposure to aspects of big business, small business, and being a part of a public trust of sorts.

    Cons

    the simple economics of the sports industry- high demand for jobs, low supply - means low salary. But the other benefits, including a pension plan, are quite good.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Boston Red Sox full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Not many pros except to tell people you work for The Boston Red Sox
    -I guess good launching pad for your career....maybe

    Cons

    -The pay is awful
    -Its all about who you kiss up to
    -Management is terrible and plays favorites
    -Very clicky
    -I saw a lot of scandal and things that would not be accepted in any work place. The ownership hates bad press and will do anything to make sure it never gets out.
    -NO GROWTH
    -Managers and director will throw you under the bus and go behind your back in a second to make themselves look good
    -Just a overall disappointing experience and I was there for almost 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better and look out for your employees rather than yourself.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Boston Red Sox

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Great benefits (baseball, concerts, random events). Friendly co-workers who all love going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Severely underpaid for work done. Very few people are ever recognized as an asset to the organization. All of their employees are just another cog that keeps the gears moving and can easily be replaced by someone who will work for less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase wages to the employees who are the backbone of the organization

    Doesn't Recommend
