Like a firework streaking towards the heavens, things always fizzle out sometime.

Editor (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Vevo full-time for less than a year

ProsThe culture of the staff, office environment, labels involved & the artists that visit.
Makes it undeniably a great place to work.

ConsLong hours with demanding turnarounds. The work hard, party hard mentality is most definitely the driving factor behind the growing success of the company. Sadly you can only operate at full throttle for so long.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your eye on the target, sustain a healthier better balance & stay clear of the wolf pack mentality.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good learning experience

Project Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Vevo full-time

Pros- laid back place with very nice people
- very dynamic environment
- lots of contacts with artists and music industry
- the feeling that your work is appreciated by people and that you really contribute to growing the company.

Note: From what I hear, a bunch of people have been laid off or left recently so this place might not be OK anymore.

Cons- lots of B players for a company so young
- disconnection and lack of communication between departments (especially between sales and everybody else)
- lots of stuff that were all over the place due to the fact that the company was still a start-up

Advice to Senior Management- focus more on processes/guidelines for the teams so that everybody collaborates and pulls in the same direction
- be more open and transparent about decisions
- focus the hiring process on better people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Vevo is a place where one can develop their skills and move forward in the music industry.

Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Vevo

ProsVevo is a new and upcoming company and is backed by 2 of the biggest music companies, Universal Music and Sony Music Entertainment. As of December 2010 it is one year old. They are developing how money is made in the dying industry and finding new ways to promote music through premium content and artist videos.

ConsVevo is still young and has many kinks to work out in their production. They get some bad press (as does every company) for tagging advertisements before their videos.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!
