I worked at Universal Music Enterprises
Pros – The best part about working at Universal Music Enterprises is the office culture. Everyone who works there truly does love working there, and that is evident through each employee's passion for his or her job (no matter how big or small). People work there because they love music, not for money (and believe me, starting salary - as an assistant - is proof enough of that!).
Overall, the work environment is great, the perks are great (free music, concerts, and merch), and everyone who works there is fantastic and fun. I would highly recommend working for this company if you are passionate about music.
Cons – There are two downsides to working at Universal Music Enterprises.
First, the pay is terrible. Starting pay for an assistant (entry-level to the biz) is generally about $30,000 or so, plus overtime and bonuses. Benefits aren't too bad, and it's a fun job, but the pay still sucks. Keep in mind, though, that this isn't unusual for the entertainment industry - expect to start low, and not get paid anything. (and have fun trying to live off that in LA!!)
Second, there isn't any really clear line of promotion. It's more of who you know and when you know them, mixed in with a little bit of how long you've been with the company.
Advice to Senior Management – I don't really have any advice or feedback to give to Senior Management.

I have been working at Universal Music Enterprises
Pros – Great work environment to be in overall. Workplace is Fun & energetic.
coworkers are a great and strive to achieve the goals.
Great benefits package available and the management is understanding of employee's needs for time off.
Career opportunity exists if not within division then in company as a whole
General appreciation of music
Cons – If there are a downside then it would be that the company as a whole is big so there are alot of divisions, policies, and regulations. The policy and regulation tend to be very strict and tight regarding digital rights and media transfers.
Advice to Senior Management – Great work environment and corporate culture.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
