    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are working for the largest family entertainment production company in the world. That has its perks!

    Cons

    Micromanagement and not much room for creativity with the old systems always in place.

    Advice to Management

    More positive reinforcement and loosen up on the reigns a little. Have a little more fun with your job! Get creative and try a little harder to be a good leader/manager.

    I have been working at Feld Entertainment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Traveling is the only good part of this job, you get to see a lot of the United States.

    Cons

    No overtime pay (your work 60-100 hours a week and only get paid for 40), very mean people, management does not care about the people, only the bottom line. Sexual harassment claims are ignored, management and supervisors have no HR training or any idea how to talk to employees. HR does very little to help the person complaining. Even when you have a doctor's note with pink eye, the stage manager still make you work and will not let you go home.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes, if your employees are unhappy, there is nothing stopping them from leaving. That is why the turn around rate is unbelievable, because the employees are treated awfully.


  3. Great company to work for as far as entry level positions and resume building.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Working within some of the most renowned and loved brands in the world.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Politics are ruining the employee morale. There is no push to be progressive or ahead of the creative curve.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. There are some VPs and members of upper management who have received several complaints and are still allowed to operate in a repeatedly dysfunctional manner which is counterproductive to company goals.


  6. Would be a decent job if the pay didn't ruin your life.

    I have been working at Feld Entertainment (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Little day to day micromanaging. - Mostly friendly, harassment free, professional environment. - Brand/sponsor recognition.

    Cons

    - During busy season (months and months on end), incredibly taxing hours. No overtime pay. - Horrendous salary with annual raises that don't even keep up with inflation or taxes. - CorporateThink is in high gear.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, arrange a better heierarchy and maybe even learn about what your employees actually do before the annual outrageous demands settle in.

    I have been working at Feld Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get tickets to the shows they produce and everyone will think you have a cool job. Healthcare is the best around (which is the only reason good people stick around). Really good PTO policy.

    Cons

    There is no appreciation of good workers. The pay is horrible and raises are scarce if ever. Not much room for advancement. It's really hard to get fired, which means you have a lot of bad/lazy employees around you while the good ones move on. It's a total boys club and very misogynistic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Show respect and appreciation of your employees. Give incentives and bonuses. Don't micro manage.
