Pros

You get to work for a major league baseball team, even if they are the worst in the league. It's a unique chance to see inside the machine.

Cons

Management isn't fair to interns - they are unpaid and overworked. The perks presented in interviews and informationals don't live up to their potential.

    Pros

    You are around sports all the time. This could be a negative too depending on the person.
    You get to meet some powerful people.
    The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    Long hours during the season
    Not a lot of transparency
    Under paid compared to other industries outside of sports

    Advice to Management

    Get more transparency. Sometimes it seems like there is no direction. When something goes wrong everyone is blaming the other department for screwing up, take responsibility.
