    Pros

    Helping athletes achieve their dreams ... how great is that? I have never before worked with such a passionate and driven group of people. I do not directly work with athletes, but am encouraged to "connect the dots" from what I do to athlete performance. My direct supervisor is an excellent and empowering leader. Lots of training opportunities that have helped me develop interpersonal skills and professional/technical competencies.

    Cons

    Concessions and exceptions are made for some people, but not for others. This creates an atmosphere of favoritism, even if unintended.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid to take a hard at existing policies and procedures and make changes when warranted. Enforce those policies, procedures, and deadlines evenly across the board.

  2. I thoroughly enjoy working at this company.

    Pros

    It was fulfilling to help athletes meet their goals while competing for Team USA. When you say you work for the U.S. Olympic Committee/Team USA, the brand is immediately recognized, and the recognition is positive.

    Cons

    Within the organization, there is a lot of favoritism, not just from employee to employee but even employee to athlete. Not everyone and everything is treated equal even when it can be. It's not the most objective place to work. Opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    To truly succeed as a company and brand, management needs to implement standards that equal the playing field. For a company that promotes Olympism, it's ironic how far the company actually is from those ideals.

    Pros

    Supporting athletes' dreams of reaching the Olympic and Paralympic Games is a noble cause. When we remember why we come to work every day, it eliminates most negatives.

    Cons

    Professional development opportunities have been almost non-existent until last year. Favoritism runs rampant and is extremely difficult to address.
