    A wonderful workplace I still miss today

    Oct 6, 2021 - Student Associate in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A highly recommendable company to work for. The corporate culture is great and there were so many opportunities to learn knowledge beyond my specialized area. I was able to meet amazing people who became my good friends in life as chances for networking are abundant. Looking back today I'm still thankful toward what MSG left me with and would remember my time there forever.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons

    Pros

    Nice hourly rate. Discounts at different places through MSG. Discounted tickets to events at MSG Venues.

    Cons

    Barely any training, most new hires are simply thrown into "the fire" with little assistance if any. High turnover rate. If other leads don't show up or call out, you become responsible for multiple locations other than your own without reward or even simple recognition. Holidays are a mess, hours are inflexible especially if this is your part time gig. They basically overwork people who take on extreme hours (ie 6am-10pm shifts, for multiple days) then guilt trip people who take on the minimum in order to keep their fulltime jobs elsewhere. You are EXPECTED to work on holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years Eve/Day.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Located in NYC in a fun industry! MSG does a great job of introducing you to other interns and making it feel like you're part of a larger group, even if you're the only intern in your department.

    Cons

    Your experience can vary greatly depending on what department you are in, so make sure to advocate for your interests in the interviews!

    Great summer internship program at MSG

    Mar 19, 2021 - Summer Student Associate in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Interned for MSG during 2020. They transitioned the program virtually because of COVID a few months before everything was supposed to start. Great people to work with. Had exposure to a lot of high level employees through networking sessions. Great opportunities to learn and meet with people at the company.

    Cons

    Depending on who you are, it could be hard for some people to feel like they're making a true impact with their team. I didn't feel this but it's definitely important to speak up and control your own professional development.

    Not Recommended

    Mar 16, 2021 - Coordinator in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Sounds prestigious to say you work at MSG

    Cons

    Poor leadership, all MSG companies are intertwined thus work gets duplicated even though the firm is 3 separate legally traded companies making some departments having to carry the load of multiple companies. Lots of job overlap per employee, management intimidated by senior directors, a lot of favoritism. Expected to work around the clock.

    Top Down Organization with Old-School Corporate Feel

    Apr 5, 2021 - Software Engineer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Exciting and innovative work being done related to MSG Sphere. Good compensation, but not on par with what tech companies have to offer.

    Cons

    Has a classist feel. The only way to grow your career here and have a seat at the table is to go into management. Not a great place for individual contributors. Lots of nepotism.
