I worked at EMI Music North America full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Always a challenge. Working in I.T. there were always opportunities to learn more. The environment was small enough where you could perform a variety of tasks. Never got boring!

Cons

In the last several years while EMI was threatened with being bought over and over again basically caused things to go into a holding pattern. Then, major cost cutting had to be done due to the economy and to position the company for sale or resale. I think that all sucked the life out of EMI.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advise, since it was managements job to address the sale/resale challenges again and again. EMI is now history.

    There is a fair degree of uncertainty due to pending sale of company and overall headwinds faced by the music industry.
