    Pros

    Great work place environment. Had a lot of fun working at Flowery Branch over the Summer.

    Cons

    The pay was not great and the hours were long. I did not have time to work on anything else while working at Training Camp.

    Advice to Management

    The management was good. I can not complain. I would say that they could give a little more encouragement but its not a big deal.

    I worked at Atlanta Falcons full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic industry. Comp tickets. Great medical benefits. You're not solving Mideast peace, but it sure is fun to be a part of something this high profile (especially when the team is winning).

    Cons

    Culture is beyond dysfunctional. Departments and reporting structure are overly-matrixed. Severely understaffed in most areas. Embarrassingly low wages (because they can).

    Advice to Management

    The "core values" are driven home ad nauseam, from the moment you walk in the door. But no one actually lives them, because the organization's senior management doesn't actually walk the talk. The core values are a running joke among employees, or "associates," as you prefer to call them.

    Focus less on your organization's and your owner's image and more on actually connecting with fans. This used to be a football team that reached out to its most important stakeholders the people who live and die for the product on the field. Now it's a cacophony of marketing catch phrases and PR spin. Stop focusing on the appearance of your brand and get back to the basics of serving your fans. Retain good people, don't send them off to higher-paying and more intrinsically-rewarding jobs with other companies. You've driven off all your best talent in the past few years, replacing them individuals with eager, low-priced, generally young and woefully inexperienced staffers. Or a slew of high priced executives with little tactical or pro sports experience. That's not the path to best-in-class.

    Every project has so many stakeholders, because all marketing and communications efforts have to be integrated. Your organization has brought "paralysis by analysis" to new heights.

    Stop underpaying employees because your workplace is in high demand. It bites you in the butt in the long run. And for crying out loud, hire more people. I've never seen a company more profoundly understaffed.

    I worked at Atlanta Falcons (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good perks, fantastic people at lower levels who are talented and enthusiastic about their work, lots of fun developments in recent years.

    Cons

    Lack of enough staff and market-comparable pay. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Recent new hires are prone to elitism. Leadership preaches values but doesn't come close to living them. Many only concerned about image.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Appreciate the workload of those on the lower rungs and work to fix the issues of burn-out. Stop managing people out of fear. Stop worrying about image and start worrying about servicing the fan and creating happy employees.

    Pros

    Great enviroment to work in, the entire staff is nice and hands on. Never afraid to share new knowledge

    Cons

    Not always room for growth, but great for experience. Stay connected and you'll be taken care of.

    I worked at Atlanta Falcons (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will feel on top of the world when you start. The atmosphere is thrilling and the experiences are indescribable.

    Cons

    It doesn't take long before you feel utterly and completely depressed, disgusted and foolish.

    There is no desire to develop employees. All the good leaders have been run out. Most of the talent has been run out. The rich culture that once gave the club a family atmosphere is gone.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. It's a business - not a high school.

    Pros

    Great staff, great patients. Fun work environment. Variable scheduling. Good learning/ teaching opportunities for students. Good support/ office staff on site

    Cons

    No salary raises anymore, no annual reviews. New management is located remotely instead of locally. No longer having regular company wide programs or meetings

    Great job to get into the sports industry and receive a little bit of additional income.
