    I have been working at MLB Advanced Media full-time

    Pros

    Compared to SV startups/companies, it may not seem fancy and glamourous. No free lunch, not a full stocked snack room. But under the hood, the perks are amazing.

    Benefits are 100% covered. No money taken out of your paycheck for Medical or other insurance you might not use. And we get the same medical as players, so it's pretty amazing. The 401k is based on earnings and not contributions. Also, very generous.

    Free games. Depending on the location, the rules might be different. The Franchises are different from MLBAM, so they want to make money, not give tickets away for free. Despite this, I've been to 5 games this season and haven't paid for any of them. Discounts to a lot of things that only an old school company can pull together.

    Get to work on products that have DAUs/MAUs that some SV companies could only dream of. HBOnow, Watch ESPN, MLB AtBat, NHL, WWE. These are just some of the products we get to work on. Your work will not go unseen. If you're a sports fan, you probably see or use our work already without knowing it.

    Cons

    It's a large place. VPs around every corner. "Moving up" will take some time, but you won't be bored. If you're not moving up in title, you might get on a new exciting project or take on a pod lead role. There a ton of work to go around. If you care about being a "Head of Something" you should look for a smaller company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that the little things go a long way. With two offices in high demand locations (SF/NYC) and in highly competitive markets, the little things can make a difference.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard back from a recruiter requesting to do a phone screen. Set up a time, and then never heard from them. Emailed the recruiter with no response. Good job.
