    Pros

    I was a freelancer here for a number of years and had 2 different supervisors. Both were great to work for. Very interesting work.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast that sometimes it's difficult to keep track of the many details in day to day projects.

    I have been working at Fanatics full-time

    Pros

    Sports oriented, with all recruiting and onboarding done in an uplifting and sports themed way ; very committed to employee happiness and welfare with great benefits and flexible and fun working atmosphere ; company moving in the right direction and growing and expanding, instead of constant financial constraints and layoffs

    Cons

    None found yet besides working around all of the sports merchandise and not being able to take it all home for myself ; although $50 per day meal limitation when travelling is a bit restrictive, can blow past that with one decent restaurant meal and don't exactly want to settle for drive-thru fast food for all meals

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it is a very exciting place to be right now ; maybe provide swag to new employees (I see a lot of people wearing Fanatics apparel, so it would be nice to join in without having to purchase merch)

    Pros

    There's a huge snack vending wall, and food trucks come everyday. There is free coffee and the best part.. free bagel Friday.

    Cons

    There is 0 training for anything, people are very clique-ish. The culture is "work hard play hard" but that's seems to mean work 9 hour days and don't take a lunch or move from your desk ever. There is tons of work and it all seems last minute because no one actually works on a schedule. No room for growth unless you want to take another job and get relocated, but then I took this job and now I'm getting relocated. Oh... and the server you need to get everything off of dies at least once every 20 minutes, if not more.

    Advice to Management

    tly, don't lie and say you didn't think it was happening. Be more transparent to your employees. Don't hire people if you're going to relocated to Tampa a week later. And most importantly don't lie. No one would ever believe that you thought to relocate a massive department overnight... just admit it.

    Pros

    Very friendly atmosphere. They take care of their employees. Alot of incentives. Having three days off is a plus. Alot of room for growth.

    Cons

    Working every weekend. The point system is the only flaw. If you have so many points you do not get a raise. No air conditioning in the building. Humidity sometimes bring the tempature up to the early 100's. Human resources in this particular building needs improvements. They pick and choose favorites. And our not for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to have a weekend off every now and then like the supervisors do.
