    I have been working at United States Olympic Committee full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at United States Olympic Committee

    Pros

    Amazing experience to be a part of such a meaningful event as the Olympic games. I was able to work on a team that was passionate about what they did, and learn a lot about the business and operational aspects behind the event.

    Cons

    For an organization that is required to be so global, there was a lack of tech capabilities available to do remote work (for example, teleconferencing, mobile apps, etc.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would look into expanding technical capabilities to help facilitate work tat is being done while international or on the road.
