    I have been working at Memphis Grizzlies full-time

    Pros

    Access to upper management, input in decision-making, opportunity for organizational impact quickly.

    Cons

    Takes on new inititiaves, but slow to hire staff and implement resources to manage workflow. Employees are then stretched thin, but are able to get a wide-range of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Place more monetary value on key employee assets, rather than quickly increasing titles but not pay.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great team and team environment.
    Pace of work is very quick during the season, very relaxed in the offseason.

    Cons

    Low pay, frustrating HR department makes this not a very good long term job. No interaction with team unless you work in the basketball operations.

    Advice to Management

    Create a review system or a method for feedback. HR department needs to be reviewed. Create a day for employees to get to know players.

    I worked at Memphis Grizzlies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Season tickets
    Get to meet many interesting fans

    Cons

    Low pay
    No structure. Day to day operations are however mgmt feels that day.
    Sports/Athletics business but no fun or fitness opportunities
    You never get to sit in your free season ticket seats if you work in the sales department.
    Managers and directors with no leadership skills at all...just there because they've been around for a while.
    No growth opportunities..rarely promote from within
    Outdated technology
    Disconnect between departments

    Advice to Management

    Stop padding your pockets illegally and think about your staff. How would you feel in their shoes?
