      Pros

      I enjoy working at NHL. There is real work-life balance, the people are friendly for the most part, good benefits and decent salary. Some perks working for the league include free tix to concerts at MSG, a pension plan and summer fridays!

      Cons

      There are a couple of archaic policies such as no vacation during the first year and only 10 vacation days, and no working-from-home.

      Pros

      Solid benefits including pension. Pay is fair. If you love hockey and work in the right department you'll get to experience the game from a whole new perspective.

      Cons

      Secrecy and cronyism is rampant throughout the League. There is lots of dead weight hanging around certain departments. Very low ceilings for advancement, however if you are creative you may be able to create a role for yourself.

      If working in sports is your passion, the NHL won't disappoint.

      Pros

      Great people. I've worked in the sports/entertainment industry for almost 7 years. Hockey people (employees & players) seem to be the most down to earth, easy to work with across the board. Fun environment and great events. Plenty of good benefits, perks, and employee moral building events. Pay is decent when compared to similar jobs in sports (not to be confused or compared with similar jobs in the non-sports world). Plenty of opportunity for advancement. both within the league office or to one of the member clubs.

      Cons

      If living and working in NYC isn't your thing, this would be a con. League office positions require much more travel compared to similar jobs at the team level (but this could also be a positive depending on your preference). All in all, nothing to major in the way of cons.

      Pros

      -Looks good on a resume -Pay isn't great but a livable wage

      Cons

      -Lack of corporate culture -Employees don't socialize with one another -Politics within the league are so absurd I'm surprised it's still operating -Very little room for growth within the organization -Unaccepting of new advice/ideas --> Senior management wants to do things the way they see fit illogically Everyone walks around like zombies, like they would rather be anywhere else! Employees don't even interact with each other to say hello - Bizarre! You can tell how miserable everyone is!

      Great experience - no advancement

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Organization is very under-staffed so there are many opportunities for interesting work and for taking on new responsibilities. If you like hockey then it's hard to find anything more relevant than the League itself.

      Cons

      Morale is generally pretty low, which stems mainly from low salaries, lack of advancement opportunities, and a general disregard for the well-being of employees below the senior management level.

      Pros

      Exposure to so many different types of businesses and travel. Many passionate people. Travel opportunities. COO John Collins is hyper driven and hyper successful, kind of guy to learn from.

      Cons

      Company culture derived from Counselor Bettman, who gives no one the warm fuzzies. Arcane HR and professional development culture. Terrible HR department, in fact. Two companies - new, digital media thinkers; old "hockey league" mentality.
