    I have been working at Harlem Globetrotters full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working for a truly exciting product that needs to survive in this world which provides so much passion and energy into your work. It's reviving to know your working towards bringing positivity, values and family time into the world at this day and age.

    Cons

    It can be a tad difficult to change practices, since things have been running for 88 years. Takes a lot of patience and lucid communication to put into motion a new idea, which can be a little difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on bringing the "team" foundation cores of the company to the corporate level i.e. departments working together to encourage efficiency and best practices and eliminate overlap efforts

    Pros

    laid back environment, easy to work with.

    Cons

    There needs to be more work for the interns so they are not sitting around all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to talk to your interns and educate them as much as possible, event the VPs should get to know the interns instead of blow them off.

    I have been working at Harlem Globetrotters

    Pros

    The job is what you make of it -- you are basically an independent contractor. The product is well-known and well-received, has few direct competitors and if you enjoy constant change, juggling a lot of detail and being able to work at top speed, it's a great gig.

    Cons

    Management has changed substantially but at the time I worked with them, there was little communication from the top down and evaluation of results marketing results was simplistically tied to net projection delivered rather than any metric the marketing director directly controls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, management has changed since I left, but the focus on the Marketing Directors as being solely responsible for ticket sales is mis-guided since the job is primarily buying advertising and negotiating promotions. Some fantastic campaigns don't pan out in sales for other reasons and some dreadful campaigns hit the jackpot.
