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

Production Assistant, Seasonal Freelancer (Former Employee), Mount Laurel, NJDecember 10, 2013
Pros: working in such a great enviroment, working on football
I worked Monday through Friday and was expected to be at the office from 9 AM to 5 PM. However, because of the nature of the work, I was at the office longer than normal usually. I am not complaining though because it was the extra hours that I put in that really helped me learn how to be an effective employee. I learned how to be a storyteller, how – more... to be a creative editor, and how to work as a team towards one productive goal. My co-workers were fantastic and I really enjoyed going to the building every day.

The hardest part of the job was prioritizing all the different tasks that needed to be completed. But, I am glad it was hard because that is how something is best learned. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was able to work on football every day. – less

A Day in The NFL
Professional Athlete (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INNovember 8, 2013
Pros: very well taken care of
Cons: job stability
The day starts off with a buffet style breakfast. After you eat you will have workout & conditioning. Then you'll have group install abd film study on the opponent or specific plays in practice they may have not been preformed correctly. Next You will have position meetings which go into further detail and depth of every play and the responsibility – more... you have. After those meetings are complete you will have practice and immediately following lunch followed by film study from the previous practice.

You learn life lessons just in a more direct manner. Communication, dependability, motivation, work ethic, problem solving skills, etc.

The hours would be the hardest part of the job.

GameDay is the most enjoyable part – less
