    I worked at NFL part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot on how to deal with certain PR potential nightmares as well as learn the behind the scenes of such a huge organization. Loved working Sundays and felt I learned a tremendous amount.

    Cons

    The low pay was a little disappointing, but not that big of a deal. Biggest con was it felt like any time I went over 25 hours a week it was an issue and probably why they terminated me after the regular season. Felt I did a lot but it was more of a fill in job until my services weren't needed as much. So once it hit that point, it was done.

    Advice to Management

    I would try and give those who take this job in the future more opportunity to do things and not worry about their hours. Having employees such as myself work Sundays was a great idea, hope that keeps up.

    I have been working at NFL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very strong talent across the board. People love the sport and are very proud of the brand.

    Cons

    Your experience can be greatly affected by a very small group of people so job satisfaction can vary widely, even among those on the same team.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the business dress code.

    I worked at NFL as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly presentations to learn about different parts of the industry.
    One-time group discussion with Roger Goodell.
    Lots of opportunities to learn by completing support-related assignments as well as your own project.
    Office is extremely nice.

    Cons

    Sometimes feel like your work is not making impact at all in such a big company.
    Higher up employees often try to do everything themselves because they feel the stakes are too high to delegate to a lower employee/ intern.

    Advice to Management

    Create a structure for group projects between interns like the NBA intern program does.

    Pros

    Nothing it is all smoke and mirrors. They provide you with a job description that is far from accurate. There small minded individuals in IT and you will not move. Dead dead dead

    Cons

    Plenty of politics no new technology no forward thinkers. And basically no where to progress to other than out the door

    Advice to Management

    Fire the IT managers and hire staff that is competent

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

    Pros

    If you're lucky, you'll get access to a few games and cool events. Onsite cafeteria has pretty good food for lower prices than you'll find elsewhere in Midtown.

    Cons

    Low pay across the board. Upper level management is generally clueless. No innovative or proactive thinking. They employ lots of reactive strategies with little to no thought as to how to execute. People at the coordinator and manager levels get blamed for poor results from poor strategies set out by upper management. And unless you're deemed one of the chosen few early on, very little opportunity for advancement.
