    I have been working at Boston Red Sox part-time

    Pros

    Intangible benefits are awesome. They do a great job of making you feel involved in the organization. Tickets to games are included for employees, and there are a lot of company events. A ton of interesting and unique projects ongoing throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Requires you to be self motivated in professional development. Communications between departments could be improved to make way for cross functional opportunities. A lot of old practices that could use to be phased out, and cultural resistance to change.

    Advice to Management

    Increase transparency about priorities between departments and how they may be able to help one another.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boston Red Sox part-time

    Pros

    Occasional Perks - watch some baseball, free swag here or there

    Cons

    $11/hr, strange hours, toyed with our schedules, no room for advancement, cliques, you think you are in the door of sports but you are not, talked down to

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employee's better. Your part time ones are basically servants. Stop throwing shifts on us last minute. Attend our events so you have an idea what we did and understand our feedback on how to improve.
