    Great place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get to set your own hours, you work in a great environment with great people. And you get to watch football all the time.

    Cons

    Hours in game day can be long. Not really a complaint

    A once stunning jewel that has become a sad sinking ship

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Smart and passionate colleagues who are genuinely good people -Football being the subject matter of your work is fun -Huge brand recognition, opening doors for you anywhere else once you have it on your resume -People will think you have a really cool job (but you will be silently weeping on the inside with a smile on your face)

    Cons

    -The company is on a fast sinking downhill trajectory that seems impossible to stop, would highly encourage interested applicants to wait a year or two before joining -LA division is being primed to be sold in the coming year, causing very low morale with the threat of mass layoffs ahead -All employees were forced to return to work 5x a week with limited/no flexibility -HR is grossly incompetent and has turned over every single year with no recourse -There are no consistent policies for growth, raises, development, and more = impossible to be promoted on schedule -Contractors make up a significant portion of the workforce and are relied on like full-time employees but do not have benefits, paid holidays, etc.

    Sucks the life out of you

    Nov 22, 2021 - Production Assistant in Culver City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get all the football you can possibly ask for Work with talented people

    Cons

    -Diversity is severely lacking. It was laughable when I noticed there was literally one, maybe two poc in each department. -The pay is embarrassing for a brand like that of the NFL. Imagine being told nobody would be getting a raise (a lie) because of budget constraints and then reading a company wide email about how revenue has increased for the year. Then imagine barely getting a livable wage and seeing the CEO is making $63 million annually. -The growth possibilities are virtually nonexistent with no direction on how to be promoted. Many colleagues have been stuck in the position for years even though they’ve voiced the desire and done the work to be awarded a promotion. -The return to the office was very forced and unnecessary. A lot of money was put in to the new office building, so it’s as if all caution was thrown to the side and people had no choice but to return to the office 5 days a week. Now they maintain accountability by sending 2 or 3 emails a week about a new covid outbreak in the office.

    For most people, it's a trap.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You'll be charmed to work in football media for a while. You'll get to work with some genuinely good and talented people. If you're lucky, you'll get to travel to some events. Your only expectation here should be that "The NFL" looks good on a resume for your next job.

    Cons

    In short, leadership does not care about you. You will just be a number on a spreadsheet for the disconnected executives who make decisions at the company. The company has a massive over-reliance on part-time/contract/freelance employees enchanted by the NFL brand, most of whom they never plan to actually reward. Leadership rarely makes decisions with the interests and wellbeing of their employees in mind (despite what they tell people). Most company decisions only make sense through two lenses: short-sighted financial outlook and PR. The culture is cancerous with many employees feeling overworked (teammates quit or fired), undervalued (limited hours / rate), powerless (leadership pays no mind to their individual concerns) and at a dead end (no opportunity for advancement).

    Appeal Fades Quickly

    May 24, 2021 - Production Assistant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Cool job. Watch all the football you can handle. Occasionally meet some NFL stars

    Cons

    The pay isn't terrible, but you're basically located in LA. It leaves a lot to be desired. Hours can be brutal, whether its working overnight for months on end or working a day shift one day then a night shift the next and followed up by another day shift. Sundays during the season, you can forget about doing anything. You'll be in the office literally all day, but that comes with the territory. Once the off season hits, find another job if you're seasonal. If you're part time, you may as well find another job too. You will work about 3 days a week, but it can also be less and you can even be scheduled zero days. Upward mobility is limited. Not many POC or women. The higher you go, the less you'll see.
