    I have been working at Utah Jazz full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Appreciate the efforts of the organization to create a company culture that focuses on the employee experience. Rather it is through thoughtful employee events or a work environment that promotes collaboration and innovation.

    Cons

    Sometimes tough for arena employees to make it to the ZBBC for events and meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide programs and events that can be enjoyed by all employees.

    Pros

    Steve Starks has been a breath of fresh air. He truly cares about the well-being and career success of all employees. He is willing to try new things and is always available to have a conversation with an employee. He works incredibly hard and never asks an employee to do anything he is not willing to do himself. He reflects management by example and leadership, not just "do what I say." He just does not manage, he leads and inspires. Good sense of humor. Willing to laugh at himself.

    Cons

    His motor never stops, and he is always thinking about the next thing we need to do, or do better. He is hard to keep up with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening, keep being open, and don't be defensive. Our suggestions are just our way of saying we care about the company, too.

    Pros

    The Utah Jazz organization is a class act. While not perfect, I believe senior leadership is truly focused on taking care of their employees and providing a positive working environment. The benefits are world-class also.

    Cons

    You have some late nights because of all the games.

    Pros

    Exciting organization, community oriented, fun atmosphere, and willingness to adapt. Leadership communicates effectively and seems to welcome and encourage ideas.

    Cons

    Requires some long hours during the season. Has been a lot of change due to the renovation of the Vivint Smart Home Arena but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, doing great and big things, keep engaging all levels of the organization. Proud of our values.

    I worked at Utah Jazz full-time

    Pros

    one of only 30 companies like it in the world located here in Utah.

    Cons

    It is no longer the warm family environment that made it once great. It is now cold, unfriendly and corporate. Benefits aren't great as they are elsewhere. A lot of people are leaving. Pay is a lot less comparatively.

    I worked at Utah Jazz (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tix to some of the Jazz/Bees games
    Randy Rigby is an incredible leader and is sensitive to ALL employees needs and growth

    Cons

    I was SO grateful to get out of this company and job. The sponsorship department is awful. They treat girls terribly. There is a ton of talking behind others backs, shady politics, and brown nosing to upper management. The crude language and jokes are just the start of what is wrong with this department. As I said, being a woman in this department leads to being treated poorly, no growth, and being blamed for the AE's mistakes.
    Opinions and new ideas are not brought anywhere and never come to fruition. You only matter if you are a VP or higher.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of the employees, not just VP's and managers.

    Pros

    There are a few times a season that you can get free tickets, but usually only when the team is doing poorly and ticket sales are down.

    Cons

    The company has way too many VPs, and it seems that close to half of the company is a VP, Senior VP, Executive VP, etc.
    Way too much of office politics too. If you aren't brown nosing, you aren't going to make it very far.

    Advice to Management

    You've spent the time hiring people to do a job, so let them do it. Micro-managing doesn't help get things done better or faster, just the opposite.
