Low paying, unengaging, and toxic. Don't come here.
Creative/Design (Current Employee) – Camden, NJ – July 23, 2018
Like many others, I was drawn here by the prestige of the Sixers, as well as the opportunity to work on a growing brand. What I found however, was drastically different.
The pay for entry-level associates with a 4-year degree is minimum wage (in NJ, that's $8.60 an hour), with no flexibility or growth. To put that into perspective, a Walmart employee makes more for unskilled labor.
Often, I was spoken to like I was disposable and easily replaceable. Every day is a reminder that with or without you, the company will keep going. They brag about the culture here, but it's hardly present.
The employee turnover rate is very high, with people often leaving to pursue jobs that pay more; even after a few months here, I've been seeing cubicles empty out. The work we get is dull and redundant.
Weekly, we're told about how we operate as a family unit, but I'd say that things are more machine-like. It's not uncommon for management to ask people to work very late or on vacation (with no extra pay). Managers and producers will get recognized for work that associates slave over. I was told that the CEO casually walks around the office, but I hardly know what he looks like.
If they want to grow into this "international brand" with "high level content," then they need to listen to and properly incentivize their employees, because their internal practices are not sustainable. I can't stress it enough: Don't. Work. Here.
