    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Brand new stadium with a beautiful ball park. The guitar score board is great and the Band Box is a great area for people to hang out during the games.

    Cons

    Very little structure in this organization. Poor management and there is constant turnover with employees. Most employees leave on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Have more structure to the hiring and the training process. Foster an environment where there is more team work by having team building activities.

    I have been working at Nashville Sounds Baseball Club part-time

    Pros

    Baseball - some fine fellow employees.

    Cons

    An organization that treats it's employees in a condescending and cold manner - if you don't like it we'll get someone else attitude prevails. I took the part time low level position thinking it would be a fun way to contribute to something meaningful in the community - it has been pretty much joyless.

    Advice to Management

    It's seems the higher the level of position in the Sounds organization the harder it is to smile - Might take a look at that.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Nashville Sounds Baseball Club full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    work outside, being at a baseball stadium

    Cons

    little money, long hours, no real chance of meaningful advancement without working for many seasons

    Advice to Management

    compensate employees with a wage that actually is feasible to live off of considering the job and qualifications

    Pros

    The industry is incredible with a lot of opportunities to learn valuable skills and lets face it, work in baseball!
    The skills you learn will serve you well in the future and you will get plenty of opportunities to dive right in.
    Management and ownership have the financial wherewithal to really improve the franchise which will serve you well when you move on.
    Great experience if you are just starting out

    Cons

    Expectations are enormously compared with compensation
    Commission structure is abysmal
    Upper management under new ownership very negative and seem to have little interest in growing employees unless they can keep their salary down to a bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you are asking people to work more hours than a typical job and at times two weeks straight and give them a break. Burnout will be an issue if you continue to demand that employees work 9-5 for you and then add on 5-11 and most weekends for very little pay.
