Mixed bag

Assistant Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ripken Baseball

ProsGreat brand name if you are looking to stay employed in the Baltimore area. Family friendly environment and given a good amount of flexibility.

ConsSmall organization and slow growth so limited growth potential. Very low salaries and expected to put in extra hours without being asked.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to ask employees to go above and beyond for low pay, more appreciation or benefits should be given. Create a career enhancement ladder so that young employees feel they can move up within the organization.

Ripken Baseball

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ripken Baseball

ProsIf you are looking to work in Baseball there is no better organization or name to get in with than Ripken. They own a lot of teams and are always looking to expand.

ConsYou have to be prepared to work a lot of hours if you are on the team side, but it should be a positive if you are really looking to get into Baseball for a career.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.
