    I worked at Dallas Cowboys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Fun Culture, working for a NFL team * Decent perks, i.e. Tickets ..etc * Good springboard for working in Sports Entertainment, i.e. Big Brand, Global Image

    Cons

    * Management does not value your past experience. They deem you as easily replaceable * Poor Upper Management in some departments. * Terrible Communication between departments * Clique and favorite son/daughter atmosphere, nepotism abounds.

    Advice to Management

    VALUE your good and loyal employees do not treat them as disposable commodities.

    Pros

    You'll get some great perks. Season Tickets (3 month hold on these from when you are hired), deep store discount, free tickets to SOME events at the Stadium (usually not the good ones). They recently introduced a bonus structure which is decent. Expect about 1K additional salary every year. Good healthcare and 401K options. Looks great on your resume.

    Cons

    It's a very frustrating place to work. Most of the management and employees are just happy to be working for the Dallas Cowboys. They'll toe the line, not push any buttons, and won't give raises. It should lead to high turnover, but a lot of people are just happy to be there, so it just leads to an entire staff of people who don't work very hard because they don't have any motivation. Don't expect to move up. Get in and get out. There are people that have been working there for 10 years with almost nothing to show for it. This job looks great on your resume. Use it for that. You won't raise in the ranks here unless you are family or a hot girl. This organization is all about money, but they aren't about to give any of it to you.

    Pros

    Direct lower management is responsive and caring.

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue. They expect everyone to work themselves to the bone without any appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Right hand needs to quit blaming the left hand. Take responsibility. Get better equipment and more employees or quit marketing. You can sell and sell but if you don't have everything in its place to complete the output then the marketing is useless.
