    I have been working at Minnesota Timberwolves full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and leadership. The CEO, Ethan, cares about the employees and drives every decision based on them. Not a lot of turn over outside of the typical temporary positions such as Inside Sales, etc. Good benefits. Departments strive to work together. Tenure doesn't dictate success but instead you earn what you work for. Can quickly become a leader in your department. Management works with you to show you next steps in your career.

    Cons

    Some long hours but the people make it worth it.

    I worked at Minnesota Timberwolves (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Teaches the sales process very well for aggressive sales reps. Sets up fun experiences and incentives for sales contests. Can quickly become a leader in department. Leadership values results over everything else.

    Cons

    Very unforgiving culture, expect to be micromanaged. Rarely recognize achievements outside of a few reps. Managers do not have the same sense of accountability as sales reps. Management changes direction too much and without notice sometimes, and will act out of emotion. Often had my job threatened. Leadership values results over everything else.

    Advice to Management

    Show an understanding of the challenges of the job when talking to reps and show support. Keep a level head regardless of success or lack of success.

    Pros

    Fun place to work and opportunity to learn from the NBA

    Cons

    Department leaders and organization direction changes often. Compensation. Very little strategy goes into long term planning. Tickets sales drives most decisions

    I have been working at Minnesota Timberwolves full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment, great culture, great co-workers, fast paced, benefits are improving

    Cons

    Pay. Although it is competitive in the sports world it is not to other positions outside of sports. So, decide what you care more about.

    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.

    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.
