    Okay experience for entry-level employees. Job environment is not ideal for long-term career prospects.

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Peoria, IL

    ProsGreat chance to start career in sports. Fun environment and a chance to gain experience in a lot of areas. Chance to be creative at work. Career opportunities exist through networking with people you interact with at ballpark.

    ConsWork-life balance will prevent company from growing properly. It is not uncommon for full-time employees to work 20+ days in a row in season while averaging 12-15 hours. Pay is okay for entry level, but benefits are non-existent. Pay on an hourly basis is horrible. Average turnover is around 1 year. Long hours breeds negativity in the workplace. Emphasis is placed too much on procedures and not results.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProactive time-off policies will promote company growth. Overworked employees will be more effective by having an occasional day off. "It's part of the job" is not an acceptable answer as to why employees are burnt out.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Learning Experience

    Promotions Intern (Former Employee) Peoria, IL

    ProsBehind the scenes of a professional sports club, learn a wide variety of skills in many different departments, family-fun environment, networking opportunities

    ConsLong hours (16+ hour days), Extremely low income for the amount of work that is done (standard for any minor league baseball team), personality conflicts at times

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your full-time interns at least minimum wage

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Better ways build your resume

    Sales Intern (Current Employee) Peoria, IL

    ProsWork w/ CRM software
    Cool factor working in sports
    Meet cubs players when they come down
    Owner is outstanding and generous

    ConsVery long hours of doing close to nothing
    Required to be at every game during the season (70 games)
    Pay is hardly enough for hours worked
    Take things very seriously for a minor league team

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your interns more responsibility or else give them more days off, it is very frustrating to be required to be in the office when you just do not have anything to do

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
