    I have been working at Oakland Raiders full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great camaraderie between colleagues. Free lunches...sometimes. If you stick around long enough, you'll most likely get promoted, they like to promote within first (which can be a con as well). Work-life balance is so-so depending on what department you work for. During the off season, they're pretty good at granting half Fridays and hosting company bonding events.

    Cons

    Such a strange dynamic and organization. Compensation is pretty low, which I expected when working in sports but didn't figure it'd be that low.... unless you hold an executive position, or a football.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please reevaluate leadership. Keep the employees informed-I find out about the changes with the company via news or social networks. and pay your employees fairly....otherwise retention will continue to grow. Such great potential and growth over the last couple years but still not desirable. Also, interns and part-timers shouldn't have to pay full price for tickets-no one whom works for the team should have to pay for tickets- so tacky.

    I worked at Oakland Raiders

    Pros

    Headquarters are out of Oakland and sometimes you get free lunch.

    Cons

    Awful management with little/no experience. No resources, assistance, or training. Pay is laughable for how much is expected. No direction in organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and higher ups need more training than the "little guys."

    I have been working at Oakland Raiders as an intern

    Pros

    Company on the upward swing and changing the culture of the organization. People are incredibly friendly. Good atmosphere.

    Cons

    Poor offices and the facility needs to be updated. They do not pay their interns and that makes it difficult to feel as committed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is moving in the right direction.
