    I have been working at MLB Advanced Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -If you are a white male you'll fit in

    Cons

    -If you aren't a white male you probably won't fit in
    -Low bonuses/raises
    -Terrible company culture

    But seriously, I am writing this because I read Glassdoor reviews before I decided to accept. A few bad reviews? I figured a few people had a bad experience. But I decided to wait until I was here for over a year to be accurate in reporting this is the worst place I have ever worked. The company culture is toxic. The morale is low. Not as low as your raises/bonuses will be but seriously, very low.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to support diversity and inclusion, and reward your employees for the work they do especially when they end up working their weekends away.
