    I have been working at Universal Music Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing work environment, easy-going, helpful and understanding management. Decent compensation, although it can always be better. Great teambuilding trips, lots of flexibility regarding working hours. A cool place to unleash your creativity no matter which department you work for.

    Cons

    Ethical objections (a company that sues kids for a couple of dozen downloads? not cool), especially if you're an open source, libertarian kind of person. But these days it's tough finding a company you agree with 100%. Also, decision making is very slow, as in any big corporation, and a lot of money is wasted on slowdowns, waiting on upper management and cutting corners.

    Biggest con if you're a geek - AWFUL IT MANAGEMENT. Systems are from the last century and very bloated. New software development is managed very poorly with money wasted on sub-par quality software products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate more. Educate more so you can have more efficient lower management. Save money on ridiculous expenses such as postal, travel and technical.

    I have been working at Universal Music Group full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Steady job. Not a good place if you want to move up on the ladder. Good 9-5 job.

    Cons

    No room for growth. No raises. No bonuses. You can get comfortable with your job quickly and get stuck.
