    I worked at Sony Music Entertainment as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a great internship program that helps develop on the job skills and create lasting contacts for you to use after graduation

    Cons

    Need to do for credit. Don't receive monetary compensation for work. Depends on supervisor on what you get out of experience. Most are good supervisors.

    I worked at Sony Music Entertainment as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    A very nice place to be, everyone is happy and relaxed, the dress code is lax, and there's an overall fun feel to begin there.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is for them to be more on top of their systems and the functionality of computers which sometimes tend to fret.

    Exciting work environment and laid back company culture. Able to move up in the company and like to hire from within.

    Cons

    Low salary and since it is a large company, you really only know those on in your department or on your floor.

    I worked at Sony Music Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Getting to work with some of the greatest artists in music history. The co-workers were great and the attitude was very relaxed.

    Cons

    The music business is in decline, so pressure would get intense at times. The old way of doing business was hard to navigate for someone who wanted to do things differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think differently.
