Positive experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at NFL full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFans love the NFL week in and week out. Very cool to work on projects that engage many individuals each week.

ConsNot much turnover in the middle management layers, making advancement a slower process than other companies. If someone has a job he/she loves, they stick with it (why would they leave?).

Unpredictable

Player (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN

I worked at NFL full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat money, networking, work environment, revealing character. The NFL gets everyone ready for any avenue of business we will attack next.

ConsNot knowing if you will have a job the following week, month or year can be nerve racking. Bodily injury including head trauma and the possibility of being paralyzed are some of the negatives.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake contracts more stable.

Amazing opportunity, but at a price

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NFL

ProsWorking at the NFL will provide any employee with a unique, inside look into one of the most powerful, popular brands in the world and provide you with amazing experiences you'll remember forever

ConsThe hours are long, they are understaffed and employee compensation doesn't reflect the work load or responsibility level. It is also very hard to advance and not much emphasis is place on career growth by upper management.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
