    I worked at Cavaliers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Resources.
    Brand.
    Great young leaders.
    Promising new President of Business Operations.
    Awesome Digital Team.
    Fantastic leadership in Ticket Sales and Suites team.
    Valuable experience for young individuals seeking sports business career out of College.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, not enough agendas.
    Mid-senior level leadership has a closed door to new ideas, but I expect this to evolve with the leadership of new President.
    Diversity and inclusion are still more corporate-speak than reality, but they're working on it.

    Pros

    Trips.
    Events.
    Lots of training year round.
    Food on gameday.
    Great stepping stone.

    Cons

    I enjoyed a lot of my time here.
     Most of management is approachable.
    Since the cavs are winning if you work for their minor league properties you get a sense that they do not care about you. Understandable as the Cavs are a big $$$ maker. You get told that you can start out as OBD and move up but they will keep you as a Junior for a long time after OBD. Sometimes you get put with the Monsters or Glads and they will throw this dream that you will move up to the cavs. Rarely does that happen. They will hire from the outside just to keep you where you are at. They will tell you " You are not ready" then like myself you'll leave for job in the Majors. Since I left there has been a lot of turnover with reps. Some getting out of sports. Some moving to different teams.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't promote from within try placing them with a different team. Moving from OBD to the Monsters isn't a step up. Other teams do a much better job of placing their inside sales reps with positions that will be a upward move.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cavaliers full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, memorable experiences, good people

    Cons

    Hands-down the most unorganized place I ever worked.

    People across the board unwilling to accept responsibility for derision making creating bottle-necks and additional work.

    LONG hours (if you haven't slept in the arena at some point you will have at least come close to doing so).

    No work/life balance to speak of.

     Poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of the situation and either get the tools needed to allow subordinates to do the job the way you want it or get out of the way and let them reach their own solutions.

    Respect the fact that people have loved-ones outside of the arena that care about them and would like to see and spend (uninterrupted) time with them.

    Actually follow your Isms. If Mr. Gilbert knew just how far the organization has strayed from these core beliefs and how fractured the culture is, he would most likely not be happy.

    Lastly, PAY YOUR PEOPLE WHAT THEY (and their time) ARE WORTH! When you factor just how many hours some folk put in versus pay, there's probably a bunch of people that are earning near minimum wage.
