    I have been working at Ticketmaster full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The company is aimed at trying to change the wrongs of its past

    Cons

    - Highly Political
    - Mgmt plays games rather than getting things done often
    - Comp is on the low end
    - Apathy and 'freeloader' attitude is rampant throughout the company
    - Lots of firedrills; priorities shift constantly depending on mgmts mood this week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire and hire; Sack incurable politicians, cull the apathetic, and replace with go getters

    Pros

    You are close to the concert and ticketing business.

    Cons

    Satisfaction depends on which manager you get and whether your team has good team dynamics. The mobile development group has horrible team dynamics, dysfunctionally incommunicative team leads, political favoritism. Growth or training or junior people was not encouraged and little hands on dialogue in actively training new people. You get penalized for expressing your point of view and if you ask for help, then you are thrown under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your newer employees who don't know nearly as much as your senior people. Everyone is always learning in the field of software development, so you can't expect everyone to know everything. Allow for dissenting opinions and positive contribution, and less egomania.
