Extremely Stressful Enviornment
Professional Athlete (Former Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere, and superb salary

Wake up, head to the facility for breakfast and morning meetings. Then weight lifting and film study. Pre practice meetings, then a walk through before lunch, followed by practice for a few hours. Post practice meetings right before dinner and then done for the day. Process is repeated until game day.

A busy, and action packed Gridiron
News Desk Associate (Current Employee), Culver City, CASeptember 15, 2014
The NFL Network Newsroom can be a loud, action packed environment to work in, but it can also be desolate and dull at times. I've learned that the higher ups can pretty much do their own thing, and their tasks get handed down the chain of command to the lower personnel. Co-workers quickly become friends, and the work environment is better because of – more... relationships built in that department. The hardest part of the job is handling many tasks at one time, but once you know the material you are handling, it becomes cake as well. The most enjoyable part of the job is having meetings with former coaches and players, maybe even hall of fame players that you've grown up watching on television. – less

Don't go there!
Director (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 14, 2014
Pros: saying you work there
Cons: culture, senior management
Yes, it is very cool to tell your friends that you work at the NFL but I promise you that it's downhill from there. The Management is oblivious and the culture is horrendous. For a great sport built on teamwork, working at the NFL is anything but. People are so territorial. Very little chance for advancement once you get there, they like to hire people – more... from the outside and give them fancy titles. – less

Unforgettable experience
Marketing Supervisor (Former Employee), Flowery Branch, GAAugust 7, 2014
Pros: excellent experience if you love and appreciate football.
Cons: limited opportunity for advancement
I loved my time with the Falcons and wish that I was able to stay longer. I worked the retail department. That involved selling merchandise throughout training camp and supervising numerous retail locations during every home game. The hardest part of this job was learning how to deal with employees that I was supervising that were less than ideal employees. – more... All things considered though, I truly loved this job and would accept another internship or job offer from them in a heartbeat. – less

Corporate Partnerships Intern- Kraft Sports Group (Former Employee), Foxborough, MAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: free soft drinks, amazing staff, young, fun place to work
Cons: unpaid internship
The NFL. I made it! Not really...(sorry mom).

Working for the Kraft Sports Group, owner of the New England Patriots and New England Revolution was a dream internship that I spent my summer, fall, and most of winter at during my last year at Fairfield. I was assigned to support the Client Services Department where I worked inside the stadium offices – more... creating event recaps for clients to illustrate their inclusion with each event. I scrounged local newspapers, websites, and news channels for any visual inclusion of a sponsor in photos regarding the Patriots or the Revolution. These would be put into a vast Excel spreadsheet to indicate the number of impressions our clients were getting with their partnership with us.

Outside of the office I engaged with high-ranking officials from our partners on game days and client-sponsored events to assure complete satisfaction and success of the operation. I also acted as the organizational liaison for all promotional and community activities presented by our partners with players and team alumni. Because of my outstanding duties in my positions, at the end of the summer internship term, I was asked to stay on staff throughout the Patriots football season. I accepted; however my role had to diminish because I returned to school in Connecticut. The daily commute to the office would be about 6 hours so I was only able to go up once a week during games and worked from my apartment in Fairfield.

I loved how busy I was in this position and the various activities I got to be a part of during my 9 months there. I was fascinated by how my role was so broad in that one day I could be in the office filing sponsor proofs and the next, I'd be accompanying players to a commercial shoot. – less

Dysfunctional environment
NFL Network Employee (Current Employee), Culver City, CAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: the nfl brand
Cons: lack of structured communication, siloed environment
While the company is on the cutting edge of technology in broadcasting, it is a very dysfunctional organization. Each specific entity (League Office in New York, NFL Films in New Jersey and NFL Network in California), operates in a silo. There is not a great level of collaboration and free form communication related to the achievement of goals. This – more... is especially evident at the NFL Network. There is a great deal of potential and a great mix of creative and dynamic people who care about the product, but the dysfunction leads to a level of disappointment. – less

New York Jet, Offensive Lineman (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 1, 2014
Pros: salary and fans
Cons: injuries and job security
Hardest part of the job was staying healthy, practice and film hours were long. Best part was the salary, offseason, teammates, strong bonds with new people, the great fans, winning, and the ability to be in a new city. Learned how to take criticism, learned how to play through pain, proper techniques, and how manage time. Interacting with fans and – more... kids that loved what you do and that loved that you are playing for their team. – less
