    Pros

    Access to some of the most appealing events and venues in sports.

    Cons

    Not very many growth opportunities, dont promote from within. For a company trying desperately to repair their image to the younger generation, they sure dont take their younger employees seriously.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn various areas of a business through hands on and volunteer projects. If you're looking for networking opportunities then this is a great company because you will meet tons of people if you place yourself in the right place and don't just keep yourself in your department. This company worked well in regards to departments melding together to get a project done. This company is great as a stepping stone. Get your experience and move on to bigger and better things. To move up in this company it's definitely "who you know" or "who knows you" as opposed to skills/merits.

    Cons

    For a multi-billion dollar nonprofit organization they under pay their employees across the board. This is a reoccurring theme I've experienced as well as heard from many others. SVPs salaries in the $100k and up range, VPs salaries $85 and up range, Managers/Directors salaries $55-70k and up range, Administrative Assistants $35k. They will definitely try to change your title which equals changing your pay. Do not be afraid to ask for more when they give you the offer letter. Do not get caught up in the "brand" of the company if your main objective is to get paid what you're worth. As of 2014, the environment has become very hostile. Coworkers will definitely throw you under the bus if it means keeping their job or getting that promotion. A lot of snitching as if we're in high school. A lot of obvious favoritism. You definitely need to sign up for this company with a "don't take it personal" attitude. It is not for the faint. You will be expected to work 60 or more hours a week and answer your company phone on the weekends and at nights.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management. They know exactly what they're doing. They feel they've been doing it for this long, why change now. Unfortunately, every great empire comes to an end. I just hope they stop letting certain people run it like it's their company without a check and balance system and be fair across the board.

    Pros

    Fun company to work for, especially if you work Superbowl. Looks great on a resume. Laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Employee benefits have gone downhill over the years. No more free tickets, limited tickets only go to management, and other perks have been discontinued. The NFL uses it's name to keep salaries low.

    Advice to Management

    Properly compensate employees. If you don't do this, you will always be a stepping stone rather than a place that recognizes value and can retain it.

    Pros

    Super Bowl tickets that's it. Get what you can out if it and move on. Most people use this place as a stepping stone. Looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Bad office environment. Terrible leadership. Useless titles to people who aren't very smart. They do not promote team work in any way which is quite ironic and the office atmosphere is like a dead zone. And the pay is awful so you better like football.

    Advice to Management

    They could care less. As long as they are covered nobody is willing to put their necks out for anybody in this place.

    Pros

    It's the NFL, friends, family, and acquaintances are impressed.

    Cons

    They treat you like dirt. CDO has no compassion, can you say "cut-throat"? They have brought in a bunch of kids with no experience as the VP's and they have no idea how to manage, build, or lead a strong team.

    Advice to Management

    In the 5+ years I have been here, it has gotten progressively worse. It is now just awful. Why don't you actually hire professional senior leadership that can balance the needs and concerns of staff with the needs of the business. Treat people with respect. Just because it is the NFL doesn't mean employees are worthless.
