Biggest fan, just not of working here.

Marketing (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsIt's ESPN, so as a sports fan you're at your mecca. You get tickets at times, but not all that often, but mostly you get to have all your meetings and reporting be about the sports you love.

ConsUnder average pay.

Very little room for growth.

Stifles intelligence: respects glad handing over work.

Many managers aren't qualified for the positions that they're given.

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster an environment that respects intelligence and hard work over who you know and how you network. Create more opportunities for growth within the lower and middle levels, and base promotions on performance based metrics. Transparency in goals for the department or restructuring wouldn't hurt either.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
