    Pros

    Work with smart people and close to public transportation.

    Cons

    No requirements and boss goes on power trips to cement fear in employees. Office supplies are kept under lock and key so if you need something, tough.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders and managers needed, not people in high positions who just 'get by'.

    I worked at Vevo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Close to public transportation; a few people were cool. Nice building and the lobby and the elevator made for a slick entrance.

    Cons

    Where to start: the CEO was perhaps the worst CEO's of all CEO's ever, and that just trickled down. The whole management team thought they were above reproach and most of them were cheating on their wives, face deep in drugs or simply too interested in their own voices to care. The place was a disaster and unless you were in the club, you were no one. And the club was only made up of Sr. Management and a few select others. The culture was horrible. It was based on threats and fear. I dreaded going to work and couldn't wait until I could leave.

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO should just clean house and get rid of anyone who was there prior to his starting because you will never have a chance to succeed. All former senior management should tender their resignation immediately and they should start from scratch. That place is a toxic waste site.

    I worked at Vevo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Artist visits to office Free tickets to concerts (if you know the right people and aren't afraid to ask) Cool brand

    Cons

    Extremely political, lots of inter-department infighting Terrible (now-former) CEO Business based on "smoke & mirrors" - 90+ % of their business comes from YouTube but they try to create a public perception that it's less than half Directionless - they don't seem to have a plan for the future

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the core mission of the company and eliminate the politics. Each department is very "silo-ed" with the dept. heads fighting amongst each other for more budget and headcount, not what is best for the company as a whole. Treat your employees better - the turnover and departure of many key employees over the last two years should be a clear sign.

    Pros

    • Great perks like free snacks, artist visits, concert ticket lotteries, casual dress • Benefits are acceptable • Laid-back work environment for the most part

    Cons

    • Lack of direction on a regular basis • Increasingly political • Management infighting and distrust • A few bad seeds in key roles • Loyalty to employees is lacking

    Advice to Management

    Put aside egos. Look at the bigger picture. Set a clear goal and stick to it. Recognize talent and trust your employees.
