    I have been working at Washington Redskins full-time

    Pros

    Free tickets and lots of responsibility right away. If you love the Redskins, it can be very fun.

    Cons

    Low pay (even for sports standards), unorganized, petty, and political upper management team, organization doesnt show appreciation for staff enough. Easy place to burn out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a plan, stick to it, and give staff the resources need to complete tasks successfully.

    Cons

    No pay, High employee turnover, Connections made don't last long in organization

    Advice to Management

    Pay interns, there's no reason a two billion dollar organization can't pay interns anything. Paying interns will greatly help diversity issue.

    I worked at Washington Redskins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A few employees in the department are great and personable. If you befriend even one or two workers, you can go to them for interesting projects while the higher-ups have you lug packages and stuff envelopes.

    Cons

    Most of them don't give a s*** about the interns. Higher-ups honestly don't care for the interns at all. If you are reading this review, take it from me. When you aren't given a salary, it really hampers your commitment. Also, a bit of a hostile work environment at points.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with more interesting and useful projects for the interns

    Pros

    Had an awesome time in the press box sitting alongside the Redskins.com writing staff. Watched the game and took notes throughout.

    Cons

    Daylong internship didn't provide the experience desired. Wish they had extended an offer to serve the staff longer.

    Advice to Management

    Felt unfair how they gauge (or don't) character, work ethic and passion. I worked extremely hard to earn this spot but they overlooked my candidacy.

    I worked at Washington Redskins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) It's always awesome to see NFL players like Robert Griffin, Deangelo Hall, etc in the office and hallways
    2) You get to learn how a professional sports team works

    Cons

    1) They don't care about interns
    2) The account reps that were the interns bosses were great, but above them were mostly people who didn't care about you, the work you were doing, your name
    3) Lots of mundane intern stuff with little help/direction
    4) Very few full time jobs are offered to interns

    Advice to Management

    With all of the interns you employ, make them seem a bit more important

    I worked at Washington Redskins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Few perks and bragging rights to say you interned with the Washington Redskins
    Customer service staff are usually helpful
    Gain customer service experience

    Cons

    Ticket office interns do all of the real work for no pay, while Sales staff sits around and pretends to be busy.
    Despite all of the customer service and work that interns handle, they are still not respected by other staff members. Was introduced to new employees as "the people who open the door and answer the phone."

    Advice to Management

    The ticket office relies too heavily on interns. Consider hiring a full-time ticket office assistant that you can depend on, especially when the interns are not available.

    Offer more incentives to your employees and treat them like real people. Your sales staff, at all levels, brings in your revenues and deserves to be recognized and rewarded properly.
