    Pros

    I really loved both my boss and the work that I was given to do. I felt like I got to be creative and got to interact with both fans and other employees.

    Cons

    The parking and the commute were both pretty terrible, and the internal structure of the company was pretty confusing to me.

    Advice to Management

    It would have been nice to have a better place to bring lunch back to so employees could socialize together without having to go out to lunch!

    Pros

    Access to entire staff and higher management (team and corporate) made internship interesting.

    Cons

    Terrible experience, management blamed lower positions for their mistakes, extremely strict rules, no lunch break (isn't that against the law..?), fine with unpaid internship BUT not when you are working 12 hour days 2-3 times a week.

    Advice to Management

    if you created a better internship program then it would cause more interns to want to come back...worst internship experience I've ever had


  3. The people are great. People who work for this company are dedicated and committed.

    Pros

    The Redskins organization has a long and consistent history in the Washington DC area. There is a substantial status to working for them.

    Cons

    Upper management can be exploitative and the hours expected of employees are extreme, even for the level they work at and the seasonal nature of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Would be helpful during the long hours if people felt appreciated rather than assuming they are grateful just to work for the organization.

    Pros

    Working games for a pro team.. Game tickets.. History / tradition of old franchise.. Meeting players / coaches..

    Cons

    Long hours.. Low pay... bad PR at times.. poor on field product can have a negative impact on sales / brand. Only top VPs make good money.. You do it because you love sports and being associated.

    Pros

    Fits into your schedule due to most games being on Sunday at 1pm. Great place to work if you have no prior work experience. Learn a lot about customer service and how to interact with customers/fans.

    Cons

    Little pay, the stadium is in Maryland so you only get paid the national minnimum wage of $7.25 instead of DC minnimum wage which is around $9-10. Internships are unpaid. No employee perks and ridiculous rules. Was not allowed to wear ski pants or a hat even when the temperature at games were around 40 degrees and below.

    Advice to Management

    Give more game day employee incentives.


  8. Culture is as bad as the on the field record.

    Pros

    1) It's always awesome to see NFL players like Robert Griffin, Deangelo Hall, etc in the office and hallways
    2) You get to learn how a professional sports team works

    Cons

    1) They don't care about interns
    2) The account reps that were the interns bosses were great, but above them were mostly people who didn't care about you, the work you were doing, your name
    3) Lots of mundane intern stuff with little help/direction
    4) Very few full time jobs are offered to interns

    Advice to Management

    With all of the interns you employ, make them seem a bit more important

    Pros

    -Always willing to talk and be helpful
    -Family type environment
    -Can be Fast-Paced (makes the day whip past)
    -Good learning experience
    -Provide lunch A LOT! (cake and ice-cream if a co-worker birthday)
    -Laid back environment, but still very professional at the same time
    -Ability to meet and work with some very important people in the organization
    -Free Parking

    Cons

    -Can have dead "work" days (I interned during the offseason, in-season probably doesn't experience this as much)
    -Some individuals can come off as misleading at times, in an attitude sense

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. Senior management in the department was great and friendly, really understood what it meant to be an intern and really wanted to see me succeed for my efforts. Now for management above my department, it wouldn't hurt to start to pay interns, even if minimum wage just for gas and food.
