      Not a ton of communication needed with boss, but other refs are usually easy to work with

      Pros

      The most communication there is is phone calls with your assigner, emails, and text messages. The other refs are usually nice. If you want a job with low supervision and minimal coworkers, this is the job. You get to be outdoors, lots of money for a teenager, and it can be fun to watch the antics.

      Cons

      The parents, coaches, and players can get a bit mouthy, and as long as you don't let it get to your head it can be very fun to watch. If you are an AR then its a lot of standing around which can be boring towards the end of the game. The other refs can be a bit odd or annoying, but you only have to work with them a day or two. Depending on your assigner there may be issues with scheduling, but my assigner is very competent

      Pros

      I took a lot of pride in working for an organization and a cause that I believed in.

      Cons

      Opportunities for advancement were lacking. Wage stagnation was extreme. Very little transparency. Dishonest and bullying culture toward peers, reports, and vendors/"partners". Intelligence and integrity were not valued.

      Cool job. Poorly run organization.

      Pros

      Got to work with a lot of great people, grow my network, and have one-of-a-kind experiences.

      Cons

      Communication was very poor in the organization. Upper management didn't seem to care about the coordinators or associates. Employees in a department were often last to now about decisions or changes that directly affected their work. I never had one performance review in the nearly 2 years I was there. The pay did not reflect the long hours and hard work these employees put in. It was frowned upon if you didn't show up early and stay late. These employees went above and beyond the job description with little to no appreciation/recognition. There was not room for a healthy work/life balance. It's no wonder people in those positions don't stick around. The office was not conducive to the work. Employees were often crammed together with small desks and little space. It was not fit for a NGB.
