    Dissapointing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Rams correspondent

    Rams Correspondent (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsAllowed me to cover an NFL team and make contacts that hopefully will prove invaluable. I'm fortunate to have covered the Rams, and a Super Bowl. Hopefully it'll lead to something bigger and better.

    ConsI didn't write nearly as much as I wanted to. If the Rams were better, I probably would have had more opportunities to write more articles, features and columns. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.
    The pay was also terrible, which didn't help.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better and don't cut pay in half until after the draft.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Fun to be around sports and fantasy games but that's about it

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros- Fun to work in the sports industry if you are into sports
    - Very flexible hours and time off
    - Nice office with lots of space and game room
    - Flexibility to take ownership/responsibility of the development of products and new features that you want to work on.
    - Interesting products to work on with lots of exposure.
    - Occasional pro-athlete visits
    - Free breakfast and popcorn once a week
    - Nice company events going all the time and sports game raffles

    Cons- Very bad leadership
    - Terrible execution of planning from senior management
    - Very little recognition for the working bees
    - Low paying salaries for the junior guys
    - 10-15 year old web framework screaming for a change to newer technologies
    - Lack of company wide commitment to make products better and make a better customer experience
    - The number of producers outnumbers the number of developers by like 10 to 1 if not more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet developers take an integral role in the creative process of products and planning before products are submitted only so that they are turned back.
    Honor and reward hard working employees with bonuses and raises.

    Decent

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe staff is fairly nice and knowledgeable. The environment is great to work in. They are dedicated to staying on top of the changing world of sports media, and have expanded their budget to ensure this. With a fledgling TV network, there is reason to be optimistic.

    ConsThe desk is a bit spotty in performing updates, you have to really run them down. Some personnel choices over the last year-plus leave you scratching your head a little bit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome of your personnel decisions have been rather curious lately.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
