    Pros

    They make you feel very welcome at the beginning, you may even get to work remote a few days a week. Most jobs are pretty easy and routine. They offer 2 extra week of vacation at the end of the year, if CEO is in the mood. There is no annual performance - this may be good for some and not for others.

    Cons

    Management is very secretive, even though they put on the appearance of transparency. Decisions are made by SVP & CIO behind the close doors and you get hit with the outcome. The annual increases are almost non existent. You're lucky to get a cost of living adjustment every year. Management keeps you on your toes by letting you know, you can be fired at any time. Medical/vision/dental benefits are basic.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting brown nosers and reward people based on the skill set and performance.

  2. Great work environment with very support employees.

    Pros

    Fun, engaging, motivational setting where we all got to enjoy what we were doing and all worked well with one another.

    Cons

    Low pay and many people people who worked for the company for a good deal of time failed to move up to the roles they expected to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more promotions and compensation strategies because it is difficult for many of employees to stay motivated for long periods of time.

    Pros

    Most everyone is very friendly and seems to enjoy their jobs. My direct boss is great. He knows when things need to be done, but also can make work enjoyable.

    Cons

    As with most office environments, there is some snippy passive aggressive things between some employees.

    Pros

    Live Nation is an interesting company in a fun and sexy industry. You will definitely have the opportunity to work on some interesting projects and co-workers are friendly. As a whole, being employed by Live Nation definitely provides some unique experiences.

    Cons

    The two major cons with Live Nation is the benefits package and weak leadership. The pay, I suppose, can be attributed to the fact that you're in the entertainment industry. The weak leadership, however, is because the company doesn't seem to really care about fostering good leaders that know how to manage other people. This is really a shame because work in general is interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing in serious management training and reevaluating why certain people are "leaders." Are some people "leaders" because they've been there a long time and talk a big game?

  7. Fun company, fun industry

    Pros

    Very exciting industry, every day is different. Everyone works very closely as a team and as a family to complete projects. It's not just about the office work- Onsite is fun, fast-paced, and exciting.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, especially when split between the office and onsite concert days.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more full time positions to keep people dedicated to the company and to make them feel like part of the family.

  8. Typical minimum wage job.

    Pros

    Experiencing shows more or less because you are working at the venue

    Cons

    Lack of communication regarding scheduling and other important information.

    Advice to Management

    More formal orientation and training to learn how to actually perform job descriptions and what is expected of employees.

    Pros

    Everything about the entertainment industry was really different from anything I've ever done and that kept the position so interesting. No day was like the next and there was always something to keep you on your toes and not realize the long hours you are working. The perks were great.

    Cons

    I don't believe that the upper management was compensated enough for their positions. I heard that people who had been working there full time for 3-5 years still were not on a salary or offered any benefits

    Pros

    Perks include working secret shows and handing tickets to Spike Jonze. Also you make your own schedule.

    Cons

    Things can get pretty hectic when the main act is about to go on and 400 people show up at the same time.
