    Consistently inconsistent.

    Finance (Current Employee) Hollywood, CA

    ProsThe upper staff of the company wants to make Live Nation a better place to work for, but it doesn't mean everyone else will want that too.

    ConsCan't vouch for other departments, but the ones I work with including mine, lack basic management skills, guilt you into working long hours and don't allow room for creativity. Self care and balancing work and personal life is IMPORTANT- some people think otherwise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDelve into each departments culture and core values...and work within to help make a positive impact on company culture. Departments are similar to states- they all have their own rules, but are still under one country.

    Usher/Ticket taker

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou get to see a variety of shows (country, metal, oldies,etc.)
    Meet tons of people/ make friends
    Only during the night, so during the summer you have tons of time to go to the beach

    ConsDealing with a lot of intoxication people can be stressful at times
    The shows are not equally spaced out so you can work a total of one week in a month so do not expect a steady paycheck.
