I worked at Universal Music Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The work is exciting and the pay is higher than most entertainment-based companies.

Cons

In certain departments, it's hard to get promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the "little people" who are working hard and deserve some of the great perks you provide to some of the higher management.

    I have been working at Universal Music Group full-time

    Pros

    No dress code. Santa Monica. Free employee parking. DMV across the street.

    Cons

    Very uneducated, unqualified and unprofessional managers including the Human Resource managers. People become managers and supervisors by how much butt they kiss and backs they stab. An over abundance of favoritism with food being the motivating factor. Several obese managers show favoritism towards employees which offers to buy lunch for them. If you are not kissing up you are excluded from concert tickets, extra long lunches and out of office parties. HR fully aware but look the other way and try to convince employees that they are the problem. Typical management and very common throughout the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the higher the climb the harder the fall

    I have been working at Universal Music Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    As an employee of the company, there are numerous opportunities to meet an exceptional pool of experienced music executives and attend music-based events. I love my colleagues!!

    Cons

    Sadly, for all but a few, the company does not demonstrate interest in or place much value in employee career path development. A position without growth can only provide (at best) short-term satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company could benefit from tapping into the local talent pool and/or developing existing employees, rather than importing them from abroad at great expense to the company.
