    I have been working at NHL full-time for more than 10 years

    I have been working at NHL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I don't know why people are complaining about vacation time not being allowed within the first year. We get half a personal day a month and an additional personal day for your birthday month. That's 7 personal days not included in your vacation time that you can take in your first year. Unlimited sick day policy which is also great. Pension and great medical benefits. Free tickets to concerts & games. No micromanaging (at least in my department).

    Cons

    I don't have any cons at this moment

    I have been working at NHL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy working at NHL. There is real work-life balance, the people are friendly for the most part, good benefits and decent salary. Some perks working for the league include free tix to concerts at MSG, a pension plan and summer fridays!

    Cons

    There are a couple of archaic policies such as no vacation during the first year and only 10 vacation days, and no working-from-home.

    I worked at NHL full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Very responsive HR. Hockey, everywhere!

    Cons

    It's not as glamorous as one would think - it's a company that just so happens to deal in hockey. Everything is run by the League's lawyers - there's little room for overt fandom or opinion/criticism.
