    Pros

    The company relies heavily on its interns to keep the promotional activities going. management really tries to keep morale up and encourage a work hard/play hard environment. The staff is amazing and it's a great opportunity to come out of your shell, make new connections, and learn a ton. I made life long friends during my internship.

    Cons

    Long hours. Intern level compensation could be higher for the amount of hours worked

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Work-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 Management

    Proactive 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.

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

    Cons

    Long 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

    Pay your full-time interns at least minimum wage

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 Management

    Give 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
