    Pros

    Atmosphere of working in a ballpark.

    Cons

    Poor management and weak leadership. If you are considering applying for a position here I would think twice. You will hardly every have a meeting with your direct manager. You will find yourself lost in your role and confused about what's expected from you, because no one will be clear on their expectations of what they want from you. You will ask questions but you will never get answers. If there is ever an issue involving you. You will be the last person to here about it. Not until you're called into Human Resources and they starting telling you all the issues they've seen with your performance. You won't have a clue what they are talking about. Because your manager and/or director wouldn't have communicated with you at all previously. They have favorites. Certain people can and will do whatever they want. Certain people will work the schedule they want. This will never be addressed, not even if you bring it to your managers attention or HR's attention. However you will be held accountable for what they except from you. There are several people that work there that are so unhappy. I would not work here unless you don't have a choice, and for the most part you will have a choice.

    Advice to Management

    Change the way your management levels are structured.

    Pros

    Fantastic company. From top to bottom, everyone is friendly and willing to help you grow your career, even if you are only part time or work just the games.

    Cons

    No real cons except I wish I wasn't part time. Being a student still, it's the best I can fit into my schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Helping your entry level employees network and feel like a big part of the organization, even if it's a little job, means a huge amount.
