Pros

If you want to work in a fun environment and receive product discounts, this is a good company. Pay is ok for retail.

Cons

Benefits are lacking. Not much time off for vacations or sickness. Management has poor communication with employees. No advancement potential.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about how your actions affect the employees. Stop concentrating so much money into a few employees way above market rates.

    I have been working at Football Fanatics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This company has so much potential and opportunity. The compensation is good and I work with some of the most talented people. The org is fairly flat so opportunity to be noticed by management is good. The projects are challenging and very interesting.

    Cons

    SOME of Management seems to be on the old fashioned "Good ol' Boy' network so it depends on what team you are on if the employee's experience is good or not-so-good.
    Lot's of work with unreasonable deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.Be transparent and trust your employees wont sell the company secrets. 2. Try getting estimates from the employees assigned to projects instead of swags from Project Managers for more realistic timelines. If you work people too hard for too long, the pay doesn't matter.

    I worked at Football Fanatics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work was interesting at times.

    Cons

    Compensation, bonus, vacation, and benefits policies were some of the worst I've ever had in the IT industry. Employees were expected to be on-call for every single holiday. It wasn't uncommon to have to be up at 4 or 5am for a release, and when it failed, come into the office for a full day of work. Management lied to me on numerous occasions about pay raises, titles, bonuses, and money in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Axe the entire IT management team and start from scratch. They are corrupt liars that know less about managing IT then I do - and I don't know very much. Get IT and the business on the same page. Stop doing monolithic 6 week releases.
