    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's fun! It's a combo of doing your classic intern handy-work of "cut up these fliers" *which, granted, can sometimes take up a whole day* and they give you legit projects (depending of course who you are interning under) that really have helped later down the line in my experience. Who doesn't want to go to free concerts by just helping your boss out at the event before it starts?

    Cons

    I tried to put on horse blinders to the sexist undertone in the company as a whole. Sadly, the people I saw running the game we're put there by a lot of "who's who" and not by whose actually competent enough to do the job. Yet again, both of what I just listed as cons are apparent in most "fun" monopoly companies.

    Pros

    Live Nation as a whole company has great benefits and is great about hiring from within. They have strong diversity and acceptance as well.

    Cons

    The HR department is very spread thin which makes it difficult in the local markets. Some of the local markets have issue with flexibility and over work

    Pros

    Amazing people on the ground in each of the local promoter offices/markets. Ability to do something that a person loves, work in the music industry & expand contacts within this business (agents, managers, production). Opportunity to see incredibly live performances/shows, a huge perk of putting in 60+ hrs per week during the peak ampitheater season.

    Cons

    Company gets away with paying employees on the ground terrible wage for the sake of working for a "cool" company. Higher ups/senior management is very much a boys club, though standard in the music industry.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership & communication training for levels of management. Training for lower/entry level employees to help further their career within the company or just to become more productive, efficient or better skilled in their current position.
