    Pros

    I was in the Rhino Records division. It was casual, and the employees, owners, and managers had a mutual respect that was refreshing.

    Cons

    Maybe a little difficult to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Give more incentives for promotions.

    Pros

    Music, creativity, work-life balance and location.

    Cons

    Experience in the industry is moot; they want MBAs with attitudes over experience.

    Advice to Management

    MBAs have their place, but don't get rid of all the experience for a 5 year model from someone who never worked in the industry.

    Pros

    Great people, productive working environment, and overall a nice place to work.

    Disconnect between upper management and employees. Needs to incorporate team building activities to make the relationship between the two more cohesive.

    Pros

    No pros here at all.

    Cons

    Absolutely one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. People are not very bright, unprofessional and their technology is outdated especially in the BTS area. Environment was disgusting. Unemployment rate is dropping. You could find something better and not settle for this poorly run company. Stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Since Warner Music is privately owned by a billionaire, I highly recommend you suggest to the billionaire that he sell Warner Music immediately and cut his losses.

    Pros

    Easy work atmosphere, good work life balance, friendly co-workers, survived the downturn level, transition to digital. Good transition from local to regional to global model and new management making new investments after years of cost cutting and downsizing. The core values have remained the same and overall employee friendly policies and lot of trust and empowerment despite limited career growth

    Cons

    change of ownership and managements several times, too many cuts and depleted workforce, pessimism on future, politics. Outlook has remained grim for more than a decade

    Advice to Management

    synergy across business units, career path and growth opportunities
