    Needs more attention

    Public Relations Intern (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    ProsWe got to attend some fun events that WMNashvile set for their artists for free!

    ConsI barely saw my supervisors during my internship. They were always out of the office and they did not give clear instructions on how to do a project. When we finished the project and turned it in, they scrutinized us for doing it completely wrong and had no mercy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want something done a certain way, be specific in the first place!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Far better places out there

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros- Brand Name
    - Casual Dress Code

    ConsToo many to list. Lets see:
    - Ancient, out of touch with market reality and how to treat people.
    - Poor and unreliable managers with whimsical style of operation. No sense of loyalty.
    - Extremely top down. No autonomy. Managers one level up are invisible and sit on their high horse. Open communication is looked down upon.
    - No process or policies whatsoever.
    - Hire and Fire is core to their culture. Yes, you are extremely expendable. Thats why they love working with contractors.
    - Heavily outsourced as well and yes at the first chance your job would get shipped and you would be redundant.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work, good opportunities, don't necessarily expect to meet many artists though.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmart people, very advanced/progressive, FUN! At least if you work in the new IT group.

    ConsHampered by old systems and old ways of doing business, this is probably the biggest problem.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the old school company people fast, it is killing the company.

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