Does Madison Square Garden offer relocation assistance?

Pros

You'll get paid money, but you'll have to chase after HR to get your paperwork in the system from day 1--if you even have usable technology available.

Cons

Poor organizational structure. Lots of VPs in management that have no management experience, and many roles don't match their job description. You have to ask five people how to do something as simple as accessing files. Unclear goals. Lots of secrecy from upper management. Daily fire drills. No onboarding assistance--you have to just figure it out. You'll be mislead into thinking you will join the team full time, then get laid off 6 weeks later. No one on the project has experience doing longterm high complexity builds, and therefore, do not know how to run a project. No central schedule. Corporate hierarchy. No comradery. Difficult to get clear answers. Bosses will assign you projects at 10 pm over email that are due the next morning. Outdated technology. When you get laid off, even HR doesn't know what the protocol is, but they fire people constantly. I will be surprised if this project actually gets built, and if it does, if it will survive. The amount of money wasted by SMEs to do admin work and cater to the management's lack of flexibility and understanding of how to "run a project" is astonishing. You will question your own sanity daily.

Advice to Management

Hire people who have real world experience with complex projects in themed entertainment construction and creative content development and management.

No onboarding assistance
