  2.  

    An organization that expects you to work for them without any benefit to your own expansion, well-being or growth.

    I have been working at New York Yankees full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They're the Yankees. It's appealing to everyone BUT yourself after you spend a year here.

    Cons

    Salary - you make less the more you work. Time off - you work every game, and if homestands end on weekends, you're expected back Monday morning, first thing. 80 hour weeks are normal. There are no comp. days. If you don't like it, they'll find someone who will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice you can hand to the management of this organization, because they have gone through more HR directors in the past decade than any other company of its kind. The HR directors come in with goals, and try to accomplish a great deal, and never do.

    I worked at New York Yankees full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are wonderful and great to work with.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Horrible senior management. The company seems to be caught between the family-feel they've had for so many years and the corporate direction they are moving in now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like they're valuable, not replaceable.

    Leadership is narcissistic, entitled, won't coach interns; pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more and develop your staff talent.

    I have been working at New York Yankees part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Of all the part time positions available at Yankee Stadium, working in the ticket office is probably one of the best. Decent pay and you get a certain amount of comp tickets per year. Coworkers are good, fun people to be around. Work schedule is flexible.

    Cons

    Depending on the amount of games, your check will fluctuate. It also seem that management plays favorites. Not much room for advancement, you have to know someone (or be friends with the director). Most positions are already filled before they are posted to the public. Finally, because this is the Yankees (everyone wants to work there) , you're very replaceable. Other people value you working for the Yankees more than the Yankees do themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Times are changing and so is your fan base. Trying adapting to these factors and people will continue to come.

    I worked at New York Yankees full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great resume booster, opens many doors,

    Cons

    Long work hours, tense work environment, unhappy employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tear down the divisions between the upper floor and sales floor for a more cohesive work environment. For some reason there was always this felt resentment of the ticket sales teams from other departments that made the work environment tense. For example if you had a question that needed to be presented to a different department, rather than just picking up the phone and asking you had to tell your manager the question and then rely on he/she to get the answer. It was like playing "telephone" when you were a kid.
    Another piece of advice is to be better at problem solving and communication with employees. If you were dissatisfied with something work related then it was understood that you couldn't bring it to your managers. Sales managers felt that if you had a problem with anything they could just find someone to replace you rather than try to solve the problem. Since this was known most sales & service employees would rather keep their mouth shut, not try to change anything, and use the Yankees as a way to open many doors for future careers outside of the Yankees.
