    Pros

    The NFLPA offers an outstanding benefits package, work-life balance, and location in Washington, DC. Long-term vision is clear from senior management, and accountability is expected from the middle managers on down.

    Cons

    There is very little turnover and opportunities for advancement within the NFLPA are hard to come by. This could be due to the great benefits package, which many employees with families might be hesitant to give up.

    Advice to Management

    Management has a clear vision for the future of the NFLPA and do an adequate job of listening to employees of all levels.

    Pros

    Supportive co-workers, small organization, ability to work in many different areas and to get touch points with all departments, perks are really nice (Super Bowl, Travel...), benefits are amazing!

    Cons

    Small organization and not a lot of room to move up much less around. Salaries are average but are compensated for with amazing benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation, personal and professional growth are all issues. If you work in certain departments, you can do no wrong and have cart blanche to do whatever you like.

    Pros

    The atmosphere at the NFLPA is extremely welcoming, with many people willing to help another co-worker. It has a low pressure and casual feel to keep all of the employees fresh.

    Cons

    Not a challenging atmosphere, not a company that you are given a chance to spread your wings and show what your made of.

    Pros

    If you have a passion for football, it is truly rewarding to be involved in helping former players reap the benefits of their service, and to create positive support systems for current/future players

    Cons

    It is hard to climb the ranks without being a former player

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to learn various aspects of the sports industry. A lot of perks as far as travel for work events, benefits, summer hours, Superbowl tickets, etc. If you take the time to meet with each department head you can get a great understanding of how the union works as well as the for-profit/marketing side of the organization

    Cons

    Not the place to work if you are looking to have a career at an organization. Promotes a culture of only being in the organizatoin 1-2 years to get a little experience then move on to another organization to start your career. Slow rate of promotion.
