I have been working at Utah Jazz full-time (More than 5 years)
Legacy. Top and popular brands. Eyeballs and exposure numbers are big. Dream for many to work there. Sports industry is sexy
Bureaucracy. Too many layers, bps and politics. No opportunity for upward movement. Old school. Unable to adapt. Behind the times.
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Utah Jazz (Sandy, UT) in March 2017.
For a large corporation, you would think the interview process would be more formal and organized. I was thrown off by how casual the whole process was - I was wearing a business casual outfit (since the receptionist said business casual was the dress code), but still felt incredibly overdressed. The interview was shorter than other interviews and felt really rushed, like I couldn't talk very much because they appeared to be in such a hurry. Interviewer never gave me a business card (as most interviewers do) nor emailed me directly about the interview. I couldn't send a follow-up email unless I forwarded it through the receptionist, which seemed even less professional. Interview just wasn't what you would expect from an organization which seems high-level.
