    Pros

    Great opportunities in a fast-paced professional sports environment, large, bustling workforce, nice offices and ambience.

    Cons

    Production Assistants do a lot of grunt work for little pay. Not very many opportunities for learning and growth. Almost like a paid intern position, but with less on-the-job training.

    I worked at Minnesota Timberwolves full-time

    Pros

    If you're looking to launch a sales career - you will receive some good training. Even if you're not looking for a lasting career in sales, it's experience that can help in any job moving forward

    Cons

    There's certainly a list but bottom line, one can only tolerate being treated very poorly for so long before they decide to move on. High turnover is reflective of this.

    Advice to Management

    They need to get rid of some of the key players in management for it to be considered a worthwhile place to work.

    I have been working at Minnesota Timberwolves full-time

    Pros

    You gain sales skills from the the cut throat environment. That's all that is beneficial from this horrible company.

    Cons

    Cut throat, disorganized, corrupt politics, corrupt managers. Stay away if you have any type of ethical value to your life. Timberwolves don't know what ethics means. Managers treat everyone differently, do not compensate you for the hard work you pay. Base pay low, commission low. It's a crabs in a barrel environment. Everyone dates and has relations with everyone. There are no types of boundaries between people. STAY AWAY FROM THE WOLVES!!

    Advice to Management

    Current management needs to be fired and replaced.

    I worked at Minnesota Timberwolves full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They do give you tools to succeed. They encourage you to set meetings and get out of the office as a sales rep. you can expense business meals and travel costs. they do different activities with the office to keep things fun at times. Some very good people.

    Cons

    Bad communication between departments and even inter-department. Pay is extremely low and not competitive. Commission structure is bad. Management is often manages through fear. Work you to the bone and don't receive appropriate compensation.

    I worked at Minnesota Timberwolves full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You learn skills that help you get better jobs. You get season tickets, by you never get a game off to use them. You get to tell people how cool your job is, but deep down you know it's a lie. You get to see NBA players, but don't you dare speak a word to them.

    Cons

    I earned more working in fast food. Managers swear at you and work you like dogs. Don't ask for a day off, management will say, "do you even want to be here?". Completely unrealistic sales goals and commission structure is laughable. The worst thing is that you're constantly told that you're replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect.
