    Good place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Get to see some of the best concerts in town, plus the Rangers & Knicks. If you're lucky you get to escort some VIPS. Another plus the schedule is very flexible. You have 4 (blackout) days a month you can request off with no problem whatsoever and will give you the schedule you requested off as long as you give them a month notice. Plus many people can switch with you if you need. Coworkers are alot of fun as well. All around good place to work.

    Cons

    The job is not mentally stimulating, however the perks make it worth it. Not much room for growth, nor advice on how to possibly advance or go to another department. Another downside, there are days you have to work outside (hot or cold) that's not alot of fun if you get very hot or very cold.

    Pros

    The Garden is intensely structured, very little is left in question. There is truly a person for every job. In the past year, the leadership has made considerable strides in creating a more unified, community environment, which has been great. The Garden and it's legendary brands are truly one of a kind, and you can feel the pride that everyone has for this organization, it's venues, teams, performers, and history.

    Cons

    Because there is such a tight structure, it leaves little room for growth. Many VP level employees have been with the company for 20 years and aren't going anywhere, which is good and bad. This company has a lot of "this is how we've always done it" drama, and because so many folks have worked together for so long, relationships are sometimes strained.

    Pros

    I love the people I work with and for. There is a sense of pride working here, and we are all part of the action in the World's Most Famous Arena.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth (at least on the arena side)--which is the saddest part because you love what you do, but you know that you can not grow here.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere and very team oriented. Great sense of pride working here.

    Cons

    In this particular position, no room for growth. Work all the time during the season so no personal life, but come summer, there is very little work. You have to find another job to supplement your income.
