    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    They are in the process of making changes as they transition to their new global headquarters. This will be a benefit for those who move with the company and/or are hired into the new Florida office.

    Change to grow within the company. Management tend to stay for a while, could cause a growth stunt for others.

    work life balance is GREAT. This is dependent on your department lead.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to a lot of industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide training courses/tools to help employees generate more technical skills.

    I have been working at Feld Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to be very hands on. Great place to gain valuable experience for careers down the road. Good benefits package and ability to travel around the world.

    Cons

    Micromanagers at the top of the organization restrict employees from reaching full potential. Low pay. Very demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more freedom. You'd be surprised what can be achieved if you trusted those below you.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, discounted/free tickets to shows, amazing co-workers, the ability to say you work for Feld. It sounds pretty impressive.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. No real employee functions (like holiday parties). Because of that, It felt very segmented... I didn't know many people outside of my department or those that worked on the same floor. Even though most of the company works from the road, corporate didn't have the ability to work from home (even in inclement weather). We never really knew what was going on with the company - We heard rumors about the move to Florida but there was never a meeting to discuss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employees in the loop. Have status meetings to discuss the how the company is doing, what is new, and challenges the company faces. Have team building events and/or corporate events so that different departments get to know each other. Definitely have exit interviews to discuss why people leave in order to learn from it.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great opportunities with some great brands that gives you some great exposure. International organization that allows exposure to travel to see shows.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from corporate level in most departments. Political agendas flourish throughout. HR is not an employees advocate when issues arise. Not a lot of trust but plenty of deceit. For a FAMILY FRIENDLY organization, Feld lacks tremendously w/ values & respect for others. Learned a lot of new words too! Ones that probably should not be repeated!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house in a lot of departments. Start fresh. Some do not to have their cheese moved therefore change will never happen. Stop bullying employees!

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Solid first job out of college. Not many repetitive tasks. Gives you the chance to interact with many different companies and to network with their employees.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary depending on your role and what office you are working out of. Also, your happiness will depend on who your manager is and how much they understand that you want a life outside of work. For a lot of the people working for Feld, selling tickets to their shows brings them ultimate satisfaction and nothing else can top it. If you want to succeed in this company, I suggest you adopt their passion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explain the bonus structure. Compensation needs to be higher if you want entry-level employees to not leave. The amount of hours demanded and the compensation just don't balance right.

    Pros

    This job provides wonderful traveling experiences and the ability to learn and work with different cultures.

    Cons

    You must be flexible to work in a fast pace environment,t never in one city longer than a week or two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dedicated hard work and extra hours that took from my personal life. Was always promised to opportunity to elevate in my career, but under constant changing of management the appreciation and respect for the constant hard working employees like myself was over looked.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The new headquarters in Palmetto, FL is huge and state of the art. Rehearsals for shows are held here as well. There are a lot of departments and if you know the right people, you might find opportunity outside of your department. The 24 complimentary show tickets for employees is nice and exposure to the Ringling Brothers, Disney, Marvel, Monster, Supercross and other brands is valuable. There are some pretty decent people running the company including some of the top level executives and the heads of certain departments. The prestige and reputation of the company is admirable.

    There is a lot going on at Feld right now including the new Marvel Universe LIVE show and it's exciting to be a part of it.

    Cons

    The salaries in the entertainment industry is not that high. The communication between departments can be improved and become more efficient. People in certain departments have a sense of superiority and look down upon those in other departments. Some departments seem to have micro-management and have stricter environments than others. Some positions/departments have incredibly busy, hectic schedules due to the non-stop nature of the live entertainment industry and the work life balance for some might be affected. What kind of experience you end up having depends on which department you end up in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some pretty decent managers who offer flexibility to the employees and give them plenty of convenience. There are some who don't and that can hurt morale for those in entire departments. Those kinds of managers should try to care more about the employees as people and offer them more flexibility. This might result in more productive employees with better morale.

    Pros

    Very casual work attire, 24 free tickets to the shows all over the world, relaxed working enviornment! Overall great set of coworkers. Managers are often flexible in employee time off.

    Cons

    Non Managemnt Employee pay across the board seems on the low end. Growth at times can be restrictive (2 promotions at best until capped).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance dept budgets better to offer more competitive salaries to emplyees. Reward current employees with raises or promotions before hiring outside people.

    Pros

    Hands on experience.
    You were able to attend and participate in some amazing events and help the community.

    Cons

    The tasks were redundant and menial.
    I didn't receive much direction in projects assigned to me.
    Very cubicle and individual based enviornment, which is surprising for such small offices.
