      Pros

      There’s a lot of enthusiasm and excitement for the growth of US soccer and almost everyone at MLS is warm and friendly. There is potential for interesting work and lots of responsibility since teams are so lean.

      Cons

      Hours and volume of work are horrendous and management does not seem concerned or willing to address burnout. Seems like most are just trying to stay above water. It is common for employees to be “always on” and work 10-12+ hour days or into late evening regularly. MLS is not scaling hiring quickly enough to match ambitious league initiatives and internal hiring needs. The corporate culture is very traditional and hierarchical (like most of sports) and does not promote openness or balance. Forced return to office and inflexibility with remote work feels arbitrary and behind the times. If you value having a life and prefer a progressive, flexible workplace don’t come to MLS.

      Pros

      The benefits is the best part of this job.

      Cons

      The amount of work volume compared to compensation is shockingly bad. There is a lack of opportunity to grow within the company. There is NO work/life balance. People are afraid to speak up and that is a sign of a toxic environment.
