    Pros

    -AWESOME people to work with. I worked in Hollywood and our people were amazing, but so were all of the other Nettwerkers from the other offices that I dealt with. Even the big bosses, Terry, Ric and Mark were so nice, and had such great personalities.
    -They only work with artists and on projects they believe in, which means every bit of your work is something that you can get behind.
    -Great Environment, everybody (except that one) is supportive of each other and willing to help each other out
    -Access to new music, to shows, and Film & TV showcases are always fun

    Cons

    -There was a particular person there whom was, quite possibly, the most difficult boss to ever worth for. He'd ask for ideas, from everyone, that he had no intention on considering, and always had his own plans in mind. It's as if he were just wasting time seeing if you would guess what he was thinking already. He would demean and disrespect people in from of their peers, and completely overreact and lash out when he didn't get his way. He clearly thought, that not only was he was smarter than everybody else, but that everybody else was stupid. He also had no idea what he was doing. ***Luckily though, this was rectified and he is now gone, but unfortunately so are many of the good people that couldn't handle him any longer.
    -The pay wasn't anything to write home about, but the benefits and the work made up for that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do.

  2. High turnover, terrible owners

    Pros

    * Casual atmosphere
    * Employees are good people
    * Some decent bands
    * Excellent health benefits & generous time off

    Cons

    * Most of the artists are there because they couldn't find a better situation
    * The three owners are clueless and since it is a private company it's their way or the highway
    * Extremely high turnover
    * No real long-term growth

  3. Great place to start, learn, build skills for the next phase in your music career.

    I have been working at Nettwerk

    Pros

    -Completely free form style of running a company - if you want to do it, no one is legitimately stopping you from taking the necessary steps.

    -It is what you make of it.

    -Good amount of time to work on personal projects or new ideas for current ones

    -Casual / laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    - Pay is borderline insulting (but not horrid considering what this industry pays now for indie music jobs)

    -Zero 'traditional' advancement or bonus / salary increase

    -Tedious / mundane work can become overwhelming and monotonous

    - Failing industry that still acts as if it's the mid 90's and everything's rich and groovy

    - Takes years to see reward for your efforts (if any) - which even then is a risk considering music is a service oriented industry based on other people performing long-term so you can make a living

    Advice to Management

    - Realize we work in music, it's supposed to be fun and exciting and make you want to come to work every day.

    - Understand that employees constantly have one foot out the door b/c they feel under valued.

    - This company has great potential, but it seems like everyone just gave up in the executive department.
