    Pros

    Great benefits and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management thinks of you just as they do their players and seniority means nothing to them.
    They focus on the younger, more eager employees that will pour their hearts out. Once you get older they just send can't wait to send you off to the pasture and replace you with another young buck who they can pay less money.

    I worked at Orlando Magic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Who wouldn't want to work for an NBA team? Games are fun, but you don't just work for 41 days per year (41 home games per season). I enjoyed working with individuals in other departments and met some good people here.. and the perks were great, even if the pay was very marginal.

    Cons

    Outside of working at games, this place is miserable. Management did an overhaul during my time with the Magic, and the sales team took a turn for the worse. They lack the necessary experience that someone in their roles need; managers have very limited actual sales experience.. and it shows.
    If you know anything about ticket sales, you know that there is a component of luck involved. At the Orlando Magic, this creates a very "backstabbing" mentality where no one supports each other. Competition is one thing, but the amount of trash-talking that goes on at this company is beyond measure. The majority of the sales department employees at the Magic are good people, but they are unimaginative and extremely lacking in social skills.. Sales Managers and Directors at the Magic are inherently incompetent. The sales representatives team is a revolving door - it gets cleaned out every 12-18 months, and they bring in new people. If you can overlook this, and manage to skate by on a minimum-wage salary (barring any rare large sales), then this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try actually being open to new ideas.. Be educated. Be active in the market, and know the "how" and "why" behind sales - don't just look at the numbers.

    I have been working at Orlando Magic part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's been great working with the Orlando Magic. There is a feeling of family & togetherness as we strive to produce the BEST experience for our clients and fans.

    Cons

    Because we work in a building owned by the City, we sometimes don't get issues addressed quickly regarding building maintenance. I would love to see that sped up so we can continue to offer the quality experience that our customers demand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the things that aren't up to snuff regarding the building before the season opens. I'll be glad to help!

    Pros

    Flexible hours and schedule
    Fun work atmosphere
    Great coworkers
    Get to enjoy a basketball game while working!

    Cons

    Not too much wrong. Occasionally, some positions can be a little more boring. Hours while flexible are also somewhat random. I may show up for a game and work until the end or they may have me only scheduled to work until half-time... not a good one to count on for hours.
