    Pros

    Very professional environment. Lots to learn if you're willing. Gym membership will be mostly paid for.

    Cons

    Can be very cutthroat and also rigid. Very sink or swim corporate attitude. Multiple layers so growth will be extremely slow.

    Pros

    Nice office culture and great perks.

    Cons

    Worked there for four months as a temp and was later told I wouldn't be offered the position permanently because, "there is a huge talent pool and I lacked the experience for the position." Never received negative feedback from my managers or my agency. However, they highly recommended me to their HR department; and even asked me to stay on for a few weeks until they filled the position!! If I lacked experience, especially as a temp, why keep me on board for 4 months??? I have over 20 years experience and actually took a step back to work in the position. Definitely questionable!!

    Pros

    Great experience gaining in the sports industry, with some of the most knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    Monster corporation that grinds away, meaning that HR runs your life, there is little-to-no job growth opportunity and they know they can easily replace you. Ground floor salary in a HUGE, expensive city.

    Pros

    Everything done at the NBA is deliberate and strategic to maximize success of individuals and organization as a whole. You are challenged by your peers, yet given the resources and support to meet the challenge.

    Cons

    Be ready to work hard to get what you want out of your position. The opportunities for growth and development are endless, but you have to take initiative.

    Pros

    Great perks, co-workers are great and very helpful - 9-5 family oriented environment

    Cons

    CYA mentality. Management could be very ethnocentric, vindictive and political. Never complain to your manager particularly if they buy each other Starbucks!
