    I worked at Washington Sports

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Great location in Chinatown. Easy access to senior professionals and great intern bonding exercises.

    Cons

    Nothing too bad really. Could have been more busy but projects were rewarding and positive.

    I worked at Washington Sports as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are great! As an intern I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A ton of hands on work shooting and editing.

    Cons

    Long hours, but not unlike any other sports organization. Only $500 for undergrads and $1000 for Grad students. Seemed a bit unorganized, but going through a big transition of software when I was there. Also, not enough people to do the work for 3 teams.

    I worked at Washington Sports as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - sometimes free tickets for hockey and basketball.
    - young and fun environment with lots of activities.
    - exciting to work on sports

    Cons

    They know a lot of people want to work in sports for free, so they use that for their benefit. There is no clear path to full-time. Totally depends on the quality of the boss to succeed or learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monthly meetings with the entire team would help all levels to understand the goals of the company.
    Not real training for interns to understand how the company works, it depends on boss instead of getting official session from HR

    Pros

    - Exciting Company
    - work with athletes
    - Great for Resume
    - benefits

    Cons

    - very high turnover in last 2-3 years.
    - work/life balance
    - compensation
    - lack of women leaders in sales departments
    - career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Figure out how you are going to structure the company with the three teams and building staff. It's constantly changing and makes morale low for employees

    Pros

    Get to see some cool shows for free, not a hard job, doesn't require a lot of thinking.

    Cons

    A lot of standing on your feet, only one 10 minute break per shift (sometimes 2 if you're lucky). I was told I could get comp tickets twice a year for a show, but when I put my request in for a show I never heard anything and they ended up scheduling me for the show. Pay was awful.

    Pros

    Opportunity to get experience across three professional sports teams. If you're a go-getter, you have the chance to stand out from the crowd, be heard and have your hard work recognized.

    gym benefits and great healthcare plan, plenty of time off.

    Cons

    Each department tends to work in silos and there is poor communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your long-term strategic plans with your employees so that they buy in and aren't always wondering what is coming next.
