I worked at Washington Wizards

Pros

Great Benefits
Nice Perks
High Energy
Hire from within

Cons

This was Pre-Ted Leonsis

Horrible Office Politics (it was like being in high school)
Top Execs played favorites
Hired under qualified candidates over qualified candidates for "personal" reasons
Horrible and malicious office gossip
Allowed a few bad apples to run the show and damper the work place

From what I heard a lot of the worst offenders were fired when Ted Leonsis took over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've overlooked and run out some wonderful employees by being short sighted and playing favorites. Good luck in the future.
