Demanding workplace.
Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 24, 2012
A typical day would be to monitor the moves of the company, along with whatever paperwork of the day had to be prepared/distributed. I learned to always be prepared for the unexpected. You must be ready to work at all times. Management was not good at communication. The hardest part of the job was to stay focused in a tough office set-up. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was working with the veterans of the company. – less

Poorest rep in baseball
Baseball operations (Current Employee), Houston TexasAugust 10, 2012
Pros: mlb health insurance
Cons: sinking ship. no leadership.
Do your homework. New ownership lacks values and morals. Research ownership - everything you read is true. Don't be fooled by glamour of pro baseball. There is nothing professional here. No pay, many hours and little to no respect for employees.

They're The Worst Team In Baseball For A Reason
Business (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 2, 2012
Pros: nothing
Cons: managers sleep with employees, no job security, no morals, work long hours for lower than minimum wage.
Stay away from the Astros unless this is your first job and you are OK with making below minimum wage. No job security, they fired numerous employees every week. You work overtime but don't get paid overtime for your extra work. Management talks a big talk and says all the right things but once you work for them it is a whole different story.
