    Current Employee - Vice President Advertising & Design Group in New York, NY

    Pros

    Working 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get too full of yourself. The brand's popularity makes you better than you think you are.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more about the people below you.

    Great brand, great if you are a football fan, telling your family and friends that you work there
