    I have been working at New Jersey Devils as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This was a great internship and I learned invaluable information. There wasn't much junior staff so interns did a great deal of work which abled me to learn much more than I would have at another company.

    Cons

    Workplace was a bit dysfunctional.

    They make working for a sports team seem like the worst job ever

    I worked at New Jersey Devils full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Obviously get to watch hockey games. Employees get free tickets for friends/family. The location is easy to get to with public transportation.

    Cons

    Where to start:

    - The turnover rate is incredible. Constant firings, no ability to create a culture as so many are let go, and people quickly growing dissatisfied (most leave after 6-9 months across the organization)
    - No raises for entry level/mid-level employees, or even a discussion of raise, after years of employment
    - They make it very clear that you are not an asset to the company, simply a number.
    - No opportunity for upward mobility, even for top performers
    - I would strongly advise anyone looking to get a start in sports to turn away from this organization, as they won't aide in any type of career development, simply will be a nice name on your resume

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Respect your employees
    - Follow through on promises

  3.  

    Satisfactory introduction to marketing and promotions at the professional sports level

    Former Employee - Street Team Member  in  Newark, NJ

    I worked at New Jersey Devils as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    experience in arena and sports marketing
    meeting others who were interested in working in professional sports
    atmosphere was great, especially since the Devils were the 2012 Eastern Conference Champions

    Cons

    poor communication among staff members at the Prudential Center (security didn't even know that a Street Team even existed)
    Street Team was led by a marketing intern; should be a full-time staff member who can give more insight and guidance
    no compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better communication all-around

    I have been working at New Jersey Devils as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy commute, central location for driving or public transportation
    Good for a self-starter

    Cons

    More direction from management
    More support or acknowledgement
    Understaffed at the time, high turnover of interns
    Old or outdated marketing & promotions materials

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with the employees

    They win hockey games, but no one is in the stands to see it because of the way they conduct business.

    I worked at New Jersey Devils

    Pros

    The prestige of being associated with a professional sports franchise, ease of access to the place of work via either rail or car.

    Cons

    Little or no respect for employees, no opportunity for advancement, incompetence of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to have voicemail, listen to employee concerns and suggestions for improvement, look at industry best practices to improve operations and efficiency.
