    Pros

    Great environment to learn and to get an understanding of the sports business.

    Cons

    Inclusion is not real, there is a mandate for diversity, but not a mandate to actually train, maintain and encourage it throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the culture and the various opinions of the staff, new ideas can come from the strangest places.

    I worked at Philadelphia 76ers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to break into sports, it's the NBA

    Cons

    Toxic office culture, political nonsense, clueless upper management, abysmal pay and hours, no respect for work/life balance, dishonest with employees (pay increases, hours, opportunities, rectifying interdepartmental issues, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of the clouds and actually pay attention to what's happening on the ground... Ask your lower-level employees what's going on and you'll get a more accurate picture, rather than the BS smoke and mirrors you're hearing from middle management.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere to go into work every day. Fun being in sports and the NBA. Treat employees well with outings and days off whenever they can.

    Cons

    Pay is low and hours can be long. Can easily get lost in the crowd early on so try to stick out as much as possible. Sales role is mundane at times.

    Advice to Management

    Give sales associates other projects to work on to break up the day.

    Pros

    Worked here prior to the team being sold and it was a wonderful learning experience! Training was streamlined and definite advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    You cannot control the team's performance. Even though there are great perks and incentives, it's a challenge every single day. Though the team atmosphere is a motivator.
