    I worked at NBA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Amazing perks
    -Forward thinking and progressive culture
    -Adam Silver is an amazing leader and strategist
    -Flexible hours/work schedule depending on department
    -Extremely transparent
    -Data driven
    -Great female representation in upper management
    -Trying to become "the best place to work"

    Cons

    -They are trying to improve visibility into promotions but they have continuously failed. There still seems to be the same people moving up year after year.
    -Low salary compared to other comparable jobs
    -Too many levels. Hard for people who are ambitious and want that Manager or Director position.
    -You hit a glass ceiling very fast

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the salary structure and title leveling. This will keep your young talent before they jump to greener grasses.

    I have been working at NBA full-time

    Pros

    Perks like free NBA Clothes, snacks, tickets to the games and concert, great maternity leave, good amount of vacation and sick days, and gym equipment/membership up to 1k
    Getting the NBA logon man on your resume
    Co-workers are friendly and respectful for the most part

    Cons

    Low pay
    Limited growth across the organizations
    get thrown in fire and learning how to save yourself scenario
    High expectations culture and sometimes working you to death
    There is no such thing as "Equal Opportunity", but that is like everywhere anyway
    Don't believe in the HYPE in this place
    HR department is a JOKE...

    Advice to Management

    Great company; however, it is not realistic to make employees make up some goals and then try to accomplish just for the PDP.. Sadly, people just doing because they want to look good but are not really in it. Even if you did well, the chances of getting promoted is just minimum... What is the true definition of growth around here? I don't see it at all...
