    I worked at NFL Players Association full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you want to work in sports, it's hard to break in, so there's enough turnover at the NFLPA's lower levels that you may be able to get your foot in the door. You could luck out and travel to a few cool events. Despite best efforts of organization to push out the hard workers, especially young talent, you'll meet some good people. Good healthcare and other benefits (which is used as an excuse to keep pay painfully low)....

    Cons

    Worst professional environment one can imagine. Toxic, petty, stifling of creativity, cut-throat. Every day was full of internal drama. Zero protections for workplace sexual harassment, especially if at company events by former players. There's a solid group of people who have been in place for decades that are manipulative and will band together against any newcomers. Senior staff brought on more recently by the executive...

    Quit your jobs and let a new administration try and bring the association back to the great workplace it used to be.

    I worked at NFL Players Association full-time

    Pros

    You get to drink every now and then.

    Cons

    Work long hours for very very little pay. They expect top notch work for the embarrassing salary. When it is time for a raise the executive staff and management make sure to take care of themselves making well over $100,000 and will throw a few hundred dollars to the coordinators and expect them to take care of themselves in one the most expensive cities to live in the country. Poor leadership and terrible communication....

    I worked at NFL Players Association full-time

    Pros

    Perks, such as travel for events (if you were senior enough to be allowed access to them) and a fun office. Great benefits.

    Cons

    All veteran employees. Beware the culture; most young, smart, innovative staff jump ship. Very low salaries- especially for entry level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not take advice.
