    Pros

    This is some of the best experience I could have ever had. And I truly mean that! Everyone in the office was so respectful of everyone's ideas that it created an open and creative environment. I absolutely loved the people I worked with because even as an intern they still respected my work and ideas. Best place to be!

    Cons

    I was traveling from Queens to NJ, which could be frustrating at times but even then, everyone in the office was completely understanding of that!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    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

    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.
