    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. When it comes to attitudes this place is hands down the worst. Everyone is arrogant and egotistical. A bunch of kids who will stab you in the back to make themselves look good. In addition, there is no way to move up in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your staff.

    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.
