    Pros

    Very helpful and supportive staff. Interesting clients and no day is ever boring. Many different networking events. Middle management is very nice.

    Cons

    disorganized and a bit disjointed. Clients can be unfriendly at times but, that is the nature of the music business. The office was very cramped.

    Advice to Management

    make the workplace more efficient and streamline

    Pros

    Generally a positive attitude among management and staff.

    Cons

    Regarding SESAC's headquarters in Nashville, be aware that while the cost of living is lower in the South, so are salaries.

    Advice to Management

    As SESAC's business involves issuing licenses to use music, collecting license fees and and distributing royalties to music publishers and songwriters, the company must have excellent IT leadership, equipment and staff. The company has never had adequate IT leadership or knowledge and it continues to suffer from this fault.
