    People are really chill, but you have to really ask a lot of questions if you want to learn anything

    Pros

    Cool people, artists come in sometimes, and it's one of the biggest labels out there

    Cons

    Not a lot to do (not necessarily a bad thing), you have to ask a lot of of questions if you want to learn something as people aren't really there to make sure you learn all about the business (they have their own job)

  5.  

    Major Record Labels are filled with social climbers with shaky morals.

    Pros

    if you like insignificant rubbing of elbows with famous people

    Cons

    if you like taking incredible heat for years before they pay you any money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everybody is stressed. Everybody knows that the music that major labels are putting out is garbage. So, that's just how it is....so, in the meantime, try to be nicer to people.

    Marketing Intern at Columbia Records

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Marketing Intern
    Former Employee - Marketing Intern

    Pros

    The culture and just working at a label is cool. Everyone is really relaxed and laid back, and there's always music playing which helps the day go by.

    Cons

    When an artist would be around they would hide it from us which was annoying. We knew what we were getting into by working at Sony including the possibility that we would potentially see an artist. This is a case by case basis, but in our case our supervisors were super hush about everything as if we were going to leak the info or freak out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRUST your interns. I understand we're just interns, but honestly if you see that they are hard-working and trustworthy, there is no reason to keep things from them or limit their work to simple data entry.
