    Something interesting is always happening and not to mention fun. You get to grow here and be surrounded by people who love their job just as much as they love sports. It's a win win!

    Compensation seems to be a bit lower than average specifically because everyone wants to work there.

    If you truly love sports, you will fit right in. Everyone in the building is really laid back and outgoing which is nice.

    Demanding work schedule for a minimum amount of pay. Daily commute can also become a hassle at certain times.
