I worked at Rhapsody International

Pros

All the music you can consume; in-house musical performances; fun, relaxed working environment; really cool people working on innovations for listening to music everywhere!

Cons

Lower than average compensation; great product but not enough, or the right kind of, marketing to gain customer base that it needs; lots of competition in the space.

    I worked at Rhapsody International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wonderful, talented, energized people with passion for music and delivering great products to customers. It's a fun place to work with a great work/life balance. There are challenges ahead but still lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Management missteps have led to missed opportunities and letting their competitors eat their lunch. There's not enough accountability when managers blunder and lots of ineffective people seem to get promoted. Management could have better focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your editorial content and music curation are what differentiates you from radio providers. Focus on that, not on white label deals or trying to sell premium radio in a market that is already saturated with free radio offerings. If you have to lay people off, be fair--you guys made some really insulting mistakes with severance and rude comments toward a number of people.
