Incredibly cheap company
MLBAM (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 29, 2015
They would rather save $.50 per hour and have a much worse employee doing the work. They will lie to get people to work on holidays.

OK
Quality Control Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 29, 2015
Pros: Cool first job, People to talk sports with (if you're a sports fan), Overtime pay, overnight = cool co workers, free login to VOD content dependent on what dept you are in
Cons: Part timers are treated like contractors with no benefits save sick time, sometimes boring, limited contact with other coworkers for overnight crew
First few weeks of this job, its okay IMO. Its a big company so you'll most likely meet people in your own dept so if kind of clique-ish. I work overnight so I dont really know to much people outside of the overnight crew. The hardest part is sometimes it can get boring especially during overnight and if you're part time you get no benefits which kind of sucks, but the good thing is part-time gets paid hourly and most times you will have full time hours which equals overtime something full time dont have (silver lining).

Stay Away
Content Coordinator (Current Employee), New York, New YorkDecember 18, 2014
Pros: get to say you work for mlb
Cons: no breaks, extremely long hours, poor pay, no appreciation
Started out as a good job but quickly I learned it's a horrible place to work. Long hours, no breaks, no appreciation. I'm sure they break about a dozen labor laws. Grossly underpaid for the job that's done. Has a holiday party that only a small percentage of the workforce is allowed to attend. I'd only apply here is it was a job right out of college. Use to to build your resume and get out quick.

Editorial Producer / Social Media Coordinator (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 26, 2014
Pros: resources
Cons: limited upward advancement
It's a great place to get started in sports media. A long baseball season and expansive resources are a pro.

Watching the game you love as a job
Game Cutter (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 29, 2013
I love working here. In many aspects, the company covers both extremes of the spectrum. It's a very relaxed atmosphere, even though we all know it is important to the fans out there that we deliver the media without any hiccups. So, it is fast paced when necessary.

The best part about my job is stepping into something new everyday, troubleshooting and feeling like you're not at work when you are.

Not worth the time/effort
Social Media Coordinator (Former Employee), 75 Ninth Ave (Chelsea Market)March 7, 2013
Pros: free coffee, you can say i work at mlb, cool office location
Cons: poor breaks, poor benefits (if any), no security
MLB itself is a great company, but the Media jobs leave a lot to be desired. Rough hours, poor pay, not really valued or respected. Not great job security once the season is over, likely to get laid off.

Co-workers who are in your same role are nice, but the superiors act superior, and don't show any effort to interact with or respect you.
