    Pros

    Working in the sports industry is exciting. The Detroit Tigers offer an opportunity for entry level employees to begin your career in Sports.

    Cons

    Work hours are absurdly long and the pay is pathetic at best. Office camaraderie is down due to poor management. There is little to no room for growth/promotion. It is best to take an entry level position with the Tigers if you can, and leave within 5 years to grow your career elsewhere.

    Pros

    Location, location, location, the energy is unmatchable.

    Cons

    It's only a part-time, no benefits. I would like to keep my weekend or evening hours if available, who would not want to work for the BEST Baseball organization in the continental US

    Advice to Management

    If I could give them advice I would not be looking for additional work. I appreciate the opportunity the Detroit Tigers Organizations has extended me, having any job is a blessing having two jobs are true signs of a go-getter, but having benefits are priceless no matter the job. Facing high dental, vision, and medical bills defeat any opportunity to get more out of a paycheck. I recently looked into taking classes at an institution were I could better myself for the job at hand but being able to pay the tuition was my only obstacle. I guess it would be to my benefit to check to see if they have tuition reimbursement.

  7. Great experience, and great company culture.

    Pros

    It's baseball. Free seats. MLB pension. Annual front office trip to Cleveland or Chicago. Great networking opportunities. Cabrera, Verlander, etc.

    Cons

    The season is very long. Often work far more than 40 hours per week. Sometimes the budgets are very tight - do more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training employees in their areas of expertise. Reward employees that show initiative and work hard. Hold people accountable that are not pulling their weight.
