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.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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 Senior Management – - Respect your employees
- Follow through on promises
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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
Advice to Senior Management – better communication all-around

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.

Advice to Senior Management – Allow employees to have voicemail, listen to employee concerns and suggestions for improvement, look at industry best practices to improve operations and efficiency.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
