    I worked at Philadelphia 76ers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere and always busy. Never boring if you love what you're doing. Good sales training

    Cons

    Extremely low pay (base of $16,500 annually) with very little commission. A lot of office politics and unfair advantages given. A few sneaky sales people that managers knew about but didn't correct. Went from having 10 sales associates to having 30 to now having 50. Most fresh out of college desperate to work in sports and most didn't last more than a couple months. They say there is room for growth but that's only in the event the team gets good and they are selling or if someone above quits. Very small desks to work at, not even a cubicle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat it as a sweat shop. Don't promise growth if you know it isn't there. A few great sales people are better than a ton of bad ones.

    I worked at Philadelphia 76ers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun and exciting work, great coworkers, fun work environment and culture, opportunity to learn and do a lot

    Cons

    Abysmal pay, very little opportunity to grow internally, long hours. A handful of colossally out-of-touch executives; management is conservative, unambitious, and unstable. Goals and budgets often unrealistic. Business success is tied very closely to team performance, little you can do to overcome a losing season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Because that's what we did last year" is not a good enough reason to do something again. Try some new things.

    I worked at Philadelphia 76ers

    Pros

    The best reason to work with the Philadelphia 76ers is because its a nation wide known company where years of experience within the organization is respected. Another good reason to work with the 76ers is because of the constant networking inthe sport and entertainment industry.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides working at the Philadelphia 76ers is the constant changes within the program. People can be fired or hired any second and the rest of the staff needs to be able to go along with the changes made. The pay in entry level sports are low and can be deemed a con as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always to encourage the employees on the front line and periodically reward those who put the greatest effort in their job becuase it will be motivation to keep up the good work.

    I worked at Philadelphia 76ers part-time

    Pros

    Working for a professional sports team is a rare experience that many people do not get the chance to go through. Meeting celebrities and people who hold status is not out of the ordinary. I have unforgettable memories I will always cherish.

    Cons

    Working for the 76ers means working in fast-paced environment. If you cannot react quickly to whatever is thrown at you, this might not be the place for you.
