    Pros

    Solid work life balance if you allow yourself to have it. No one is expecting you to work on weekends or outside of regular hours. If you're a music fan, then great in office performances and artist visits.

    Cons

    If you let the work take you over, it will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep visibility into the day to day operations and recognize from peers who is performing.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep your eye on the target, sustain a healthier better balance & stay clear of the wolf pack mentality.

    Former Employee - Project Manager  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Project Manager in New York, NY

    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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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.

    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY

    Pros

    Vevo 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.

    Cons

    Vevo 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
