    I worked at Houston Texans (More than a year)

    Pros

    A true top workplace. Jamey Rootes (President) is an awesome, engaging leader. The company meetings are like business meetings on steroids - so fun but meaningful to the business. The people are high quality and super passionate about what they do. Benefits are among the best I've experienced. People have high expectations in your work and make you want to be better. Free lunch and drinks. Culture is strong.

    Cons

    Definitely a work hard, play hard mentality. Expect long hours. But they take care of employees when they can to make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it! Keep listening to employee feedback on the surveys and making improvements.


  2. "Fun but internal problems"

    Pros

    Super great experience and overall a great place to work. Great people, tons of options to network, work with tons of people.

    Cons

    Favoritism is very evident. Come in with coffee and you will go farther. The more you can come in and socialize the better you will be and more events you'll get picked for.

    I worked at Houston Texans part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting great fans, breaking into a career in sports, watching the games, free food, and opportunities to meet people that can influence your career

    Cons

    working in ALL weather, dealing with drunk or unruly fans, disrespectful coworkers, a manager that doesn't manage employees, no face time in the offices, lack of support from manager

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of the type of people that you are employing. Realize that this is a stepping stone for some of the employees and a party to others. Be mindful that the people that value this job should be rewarded for their loyalty and hard work with real opportunities.

    I worked at Houston Texans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced, high energy, high caliber, high expectations, high quality. Very intelligent work force.

    Cons

    No time to smell the roses. So performance driven that relationships are overlooked. High stress. The company demands a ton from employees so family tends to suffer. It's always what have you done for me lately and appreciation seems fleeting.

    Advice to Management

    Build for the long term with employees. Realize that while performance and results are extremely important so is compassion, relaxation, and consistent appreciation.

    I worked at Houston Texans full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company as a whole is awesome. People in other departments were so nice and welcoming on my first day and every day after. The perks are great (i.e. season tickets, access to rodeo, other events around Houston).

    Cons

    The accounting department is under-staffed, under-paid, and over-worked. Senior management has some serious time management and leadership issues. The top 2 people in the department work a severe amount of overtime and still can't get there jobs done b/c they don't prioritize and plan. Then they pull thier support staff off of their responsibilites to help them, therefore causing them to be behind on their work. Zero professionalism whatsover. Have been told upper management is watching and something will be done....how many accountants have to leave before that happens? Very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the top 2 managers and find someone people will respect and want to follow. Find someone that will treat their hard-working employees the respect they deserve.
