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

    Pros

    Fun events, although you are working during them most of the time.

    Decent office environment with decent technology.

    Senior Leaders usually have a lot of experience in their area and have a lot of knowledge about their respective field.

    Cons

    Long hours and minimal pay in comparison. Work/Life balance is non-existent and people are often at or on the verge of exhaustion making it a difficult environment.

    No formal structure at the top, so Executives argue with each other causing decisions to be at a stand still a lot of the time.

    Most areas are small so really not a lot of growth opportunity although there are a lot of employees overall.

    Advice to Management

    Define a formal hierarchy. Respect people and the long hours that they put in.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks (tickets to games and some third party events), competitive pay in the sales and marketing side, and organization really rewards staff for exceeding goals (annual all-inclusive trip)

    Cons

    Not much of a work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, a lot of dedicated Coworkers, Monday-Friday, season tickets, 40% off, tickets to some stadium events, casual dress code

    Cons

    If you expect to pay bills, look FAR away from here. Unless you're a manager, the pay sucks. The company could care less about their employees. They think because they give us "perks" they can pay us chump change. If you look in the parking lot the only people with nice cars is the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    We make the franchise A LOT of money. It would be nice if you thought about the livelihood of your employees instead of shrugging your shoulders when a long time, loyal employee quits due to low pay.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. You get season tickets and parking along with discounts at the pro shops and fantastic health insurance.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites and keep it difficult to advance career-wise. No negotiating of salary. Not much recognition for accomplishments.

    I have been working at Dallas Cowboys part-time

    Pros

    I have met some of the most incredible people there. Everyone is nice and very hard working.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of promises made by former and current mgmt. But no one has delivered. No raises, no benefits, no Thanksgiving Turkey, Christmas ham or a bonus. No real appreciation for the employees that have been there 5yrs or more. Maybe a contest to go to the Super Bowl.

    Advice to Management

    Stop walking around like you are something more than you are, come down with us workers that make your positions possible. Speak when you see us, as we speak to you. More perks...make us feel special to be apart of the Greatest Show in the NFL

    I worked at Dallas Cowboys part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and managers. 40% off discount. You get to talk about football all day. Fun work environment. Great clientele.

    Cons

    Corporate is extremely disorganized and lacks communication. Most of the higher ups are unintelligent and under qualified. The company neglects most of the stores which results in hard working employees quitting due to lack of promotions. There is no room for advancement. Lots of favoritism. DM is unprofessional. No benefits or full time positions (unless you're a store manager). Sales associates work by themselves most of the time, even when closing the store. Very unsafe. Stores have no real structure, hence employees do whatever they want. The new dress code forbids wearing any Jerseys or shirts (only polos!) which makes absolutely no sense. The only reason most people stick around is because store managers get season tickets.

    Advice to Management

    Visit all your stores more often, not just a few. Get to know your employees, recognize the hard workers and get to know what really goes on in the stores. You will be surprised at how many people in higher positions do not do their job. Communication needs to improve, it is non existent. At least pretend that you care.
