    A job of a lifetime

    Vice President Advertising & Design Group (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWorking for the most popular brand in America, if not the world is an amazing opportunity. The exposure and scale of projects you work on are immense and the popularity of the sport makes work exciting, fun and rewarding.

    ConsLimited growth opportunity, although top level management positions are about as good as it gets and motivation for upward growth is diminished.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't get too full of yourself. The brand's popularity makes you better than you think you are.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun, typical entry level job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe people you work with are terrific. Passionate about sports. Everyone enjoys the atmosphere.

    ConsLong hours, average pay. What is generally expected when starting out in the real world. Promotions are near impossible to find. Work force is capped so as not to break the Leagues "charity" status.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare a little more about the people below you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
