    30% off at retail stores, get to watch concerts and sporting events while working, fun and supportive colleagues

    Cons

    Upper Management is not supportive in terms of growth for younger employees, very little motivation from upper management to innovate and stay ahead of the curve, only face-value tickets offered to employees

    Focus on motivating and supporting younger talent.

    Pros

    Exciting environment. The people there are very friendly and are helpful with new employees. Working in professional entertainment is a great start for young employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work weekend long hours. Schedule is different every week so it is tough to get on the same schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Madison square garden is a great company to work for and I had a blast. Maybe increase pay a little bit.
