  1. "UAB Property Assistant Internship"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Property Assistant in Birmingham, AL
      Recommends

      I worked at IMG Worldwide part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Communication, Being able to take part in upper management activities, You See the results of your effort, Relaxed atmosphere (Except for football games, which are fun).

      Cons

      There are a lot of "slow" moments where everything that needs to be done is done. If you don't stay busy, you'll get bored.

      Advice to Management

      Create a better communication system for game day scripts, the overload of information can be annoying when searching for a promotion related to IMG.

        Neutral Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at IMG Worldwide full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        If you get linked up with that right division you will find people willing to mentor who are still cut from the cloth that Mark McCormack used to design the original IMG. Diverse portfolio allows for expansive growth of your entertainment industry knowledge bank. If you pay heed to senior leaders, they’ll take care of you in some shape or form. Trust the process.

        Cons

        Hard to get noticed if you’re not an extrovert and/or loudmouth. Shifting company mission statement / identity. Tough to advance salary / compensation.

        Advice to Management

        Current management didn’t release the most valuable assets in the company with an awful plan to supplant their revenue (athlete management roster for IMG College), but I’d say definitely don’t do something like that again.

        "Good not great"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at IMG Worldwide full-time

          Pros

          If you work hard, you will eventually be recognized and rewarded. Direct manager is key - if they don't vouch for you it will be very difficult to advance.

          Cons

          Political battleground. If there is a negative narrative about you, you will eventually be fired. Also very short time to perform if in a sales role.

          Advice to Management

          Look internally for rising talent vs. bringing in experts from outside, majority of the time those people don't last.
