I worked at Houston Astros as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Met some of the greatest guys. There is nothing better than playing the game you love with some of the nicest guys in the sport.

Cons

Never given an opportunity. I was told i was too old at age 24. I went on to Independent baseball had had a high level of success in a league with more talent than the one i was placed in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because someone is given a large signing bonus, does not mean they will be the best or hardest working player. Figure it out. The hardest working players are your college athletes that had to go through the college experience. When releasing people, have merit and don't call a 23 or 24 year old too old; especially when I was never sent down and led the team in a number of categories.

    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.
