    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You get to work on lots of cool stuff. Exposure to celebs. Cool brands.

    Cons

    Everyone is inspired by fear and not inspired to make cool stuff. Everyone's scared of leadership. People fired on a whim. Including very senior and loyal employees who have been there for 20+ years.

    Company is slow to adapt to any new technologies. Junior to mid level talent is very underpaid. Everyone is from the tristate area.

    Advice to Management

    Be better. Promote within. More transparency.

    I have been working at Madison Square Garden part-time

    Pros

    meeting people- CEO's, celebs, etc, that you'd never otherwise have a chance to speak with.
    Having the name on the resume. Average shift is only 5.5 hrs. Great job for a college student or someone who has a teacher's type of schedule. Busiest Oct-March-ish, depending on success of sports teams= seasonal.

    Cons

    the insane lack of communication overall and the immaturity level is simply gross. Management can never be wrong, just so agree. Union position so although mgmnt says you can talk to them, end result is never good. Reminded daily how disposable you are. Seasonal position.

    Advice to Management

    learn how to talk to people, learn how to deal with stress, you are also equally disposable.
