Pros

The ability to work with a professional sports team with enormous potential is incredible. The perks are enormous as you are encouraged to show your support for the team on game days and throughout the week.

Cons

--salaries are low (but truly all salaries in pro sports are lower than one might expect)
--a lot of the business has to do with how the team does performance-wise so things can fluctuate from year to year

Advice to Management

--accessibility to the players could really get fans more into the games and cheer for their favorite players (basically to help fan retention)

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Playing professional sports for any league is great. The offseason is long enough to be enjoyed with a good vacation.

    Cons

    The pay. The organization of the league as a whole. Little control for the players. The schedule is not aligned with the FIFA schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in consultants from successful professional soccer leagues in Europe. Increase the salary cap so great American talent can be retained.

    "Great working environment but don't expect to get hired if you plan on interning."

    Pros

    Young staff, great working environment. If you want to gain experience working in sports good place to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    Interns work full-time and get paid absolute crap. Don't expect to get hired unless you put in a good two years of interning, if that. Don't get your hopes up.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should be more honest with interns from the start. Don't lead interns on.
