    Pros

    Great, fun, young company with lots of room for improvement. Good time off and holidays.

    Cons

    At times hard to find good leadership. Upper management seems to care about employee satisfaction but it gets lost in implementation. Lower than average industry salary, with no room for salary increases

  3. Traffic Director

    I have been working at Live Nation Entertainment part-time

    Pros

    You do not work every weekend and only scheduled concerts when there are events in the park.

    Cons

    You do not get a steady paycheck if your looking for full time work. Mainly part time as a traffic director on limited weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good and informs you of events/concerts ahead of time. Easy to talk to and keep in contact with.

    Pros

    Live Nation as a whole company has great benefits and is great about hiring from within. They have strong diversity and acceptance as well.

    Cons

    The HR department is very spread thin which makes it difficult in the local markets. Some of the local markets have issue with flexibility and over work

    Pros

    Amazing people on the ground in each of the local promoter offices/markets. Ability to do something that a person loves, work in the music industry & expand contacts within this business (agents, managers, production). Opportunity to see incredibly live performances/shows, a huge perk of putting in 60+ hrs per week during the peak ampitheater season.

    Cons

    Company gets away with paying employees on the ground terrible wage for the sake of working for a "cool" company. Higher ups/senior management is very much a boys club, though standard in the music industry.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership & communication training for levels of management. Training for lower/entry level employees to help further their career within the company or just to become more productive, efficient or better skilled in their current position.

    Pros

    Can't beat working with live music! Great benefits and some intelligent and experienced people to work with. Lots of room for growth.

    Cons

    Long hours, very little down time. A lack of communication between departments/offices is often an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Work on training procedures for new staff.

    Pros

    Was at every concert for free, met several artists and got to go backstage with minimal effort. Recommended for anyone who wants the little extras that very few ever get to see from their favorite artists.

    Cons

    Manager was new to his role and although he was wonderful at his job he needed help giving direction. I learned very little about the music industry, you must be able to work independently often.

    Advice to Management

    Have a training program. Don't hog the knowledge, and do more to include new Individuals despite their limited time.

    Pros

    the company is invested in employing the most advanced work methodologies to deliver quality software and on-time including Agile and Kanban.

    Cons

    Agile and Kanban prefer to have co-located teams so working at home is the exception not the norm.

    Advice to Management

    continue to be transparent. Continue to keep things simple.
