    I worked at Washington Redskins (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great staff and environment
    -Tickets and discounts to games for friends and family or for FedExField events in general
    -You don't feel a "wrath" like most sales teams. There are hard times especially with a sports team that doesn't perform the greatest and front office moves that kill momentum, but even with all that, you just brush it off and continue your work
    -upgrading the lead system
    -there is quarterly commission

    Cons

    -it's sales, heck yes there's tough days when it's outbound calling people that a) hate dan Snyder b) hate Bruce Allen c) protesting the NFL d) had a bad experience and will never come back no matter how hard you reason with them e) think Redskins is offensive (yet somehow didn't way before this past decade. Yeah it's an offensive name we all can agree) f) not even redskins fans but somehow on the lead list
    -you will be suited and booted on gamedays that means clean shaven and business professional which can be hella uncomfortable during hot games and cold games almost no in between it feels like most games
    -it's 9-6 40 hour work weeks with OT though for events. Part timers are 29 hours flexible though*
    -pay. Minimum PG county wage is the pay here. You cannot live off this in the area off this unless you have financial help with parents or whatever. It sucks cuz you bust your jump and do great and yet you're worried about finances. This is really the only true Con and that's frustrating for such a storied and rich franchise. Turnover can get high at times because of this and you lose great people (not managements fault though)

    Advice to Management

    If there's any way to pay people that fits standard of living around the area that's really it. Keep the environment comfortable and open downstairs and make upstairs more lively. Continue to have work outings because everyone loves those and it's much needed. Keep everyone motivated with realistic sales goals and keep fighting the good fight of selling season tickets which gets harder and harder each heartbreaking season and in general as most people don't pay for season packages anymore.

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

    Pros

    I really loved both my boss and the work that I was given to do. I felt like I got to be creative and got to interact with both fans and other employees.

    Cons

    The parking and the commute were both pretty terrible, and the internal structure of the company was pretty confusing to me.

    Advice to Management

    It would have been nice to have a better place to bring lunch back to so employees could socialize together without having to go out to lunch!

    Pros

    Working games for a pro team.. Game tickets.. History / tradition of old franchise.. Meeting players / coaches..

    Cons

    Long hours.. Low pay... bad PR at times.. poor on field product can have a negative impact on sales / brand. Only top VPs make good money.. You do it because you love sports and being associated.

    I have been working at Washington Redskins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Always willing to talk and be helpful
    -Family type environment
    -Can be Fast-Paced (makes the day whip past)
    -Good learning experience
    -Provide lunch A LOT! (cake and ice-cream if a co-worker birthday)
    -Laid back environment, but still very professional at the same time
    -Ability to meet and work with some very important people in the organization
    -Free Parking

    Cons

    -Can have dead "work" days (I interned during the offseason, in-season probably doesn't experience this as much)
    -Some individuals can come off as misleading at times, in an attitude sense

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. Senior management in the department was great and friendly, really understood what it meant to be an intern and really wanted to see me succeed for my efforts. Now for management above my department, it wouldn't hurt to start to pay interns, even if minimum wage just for gas and food.
