Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great Benefits
Nice Perks
High Energy
Hire from within

Cons

This was Pre-Ted Leonsis

Horrible Office Politics (it was like being in high school)
Top Execs played favorites
Hired under qualified candidates over qualified candidates for "personal" reasons
Horrible and malicious office gossip
Allowed a few bad apples to run the show and damper the work place

From what I heard a lot of the worst offenders were fired when Ted Leonsis took over.

Advice to Management

You've overlooked and run out some wonderful employees by being short sighted and playing favorites. Good luck in the future.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Opportunities to receive early access to other events in the Verizon Center, season passes for Wizards & Mystics, cool staff, etc...

    Cons

    I worked there at a time when a new program was being developed. I dealt with not receiving my checks, and not really being considered an actual employee even though I was there everyday. That person is no longer there and I can also understand when new things are being implemented and details are not clear to everyone. I'm sure the organization is a lot better now.


  2. "Would NEVER go back!"

    Get more involved. Same people advancing for no reason at all. Where are the women....oh yeah, they were either let go or leave because it is a "Boys Club!"
