In our ongoing effort to build and retain strong, diverse teams, Ticketmaster has begun working towards a collective goal to become a choice destination for Women in Tech (WiT). To achieve this, the WiT Program focuses on two key initiatives: attraction and retention.
The program was launched in fall of 2016 and piloted with a select group of WiT INbassadors from four locations across Ticketmaster North America: Chicago, Durham, Scottsdale, and Hollywood. The initial objective was to take the first steps towards strengthening our employer brand and building relationships in the WiT community, which included hosting events, networking, attending recruiting and campus engagements, speaking at conferences, etc.
In 2017, the WiT Program will continue to focus on attracting top talent to the organization. It will also expand to include new locations, add new WiT INbassadors, and offer anyone who’s interested an opportunity to get involved. 2017 will also include a partnership with WENation, the Employee Resource Group (ERG) for all women at Live Nation, to benefit from the valuable training and resources they provide to help employees streamline their careers at Ticketmaster.
As this is a new program, it will continue to evolve as we grow and gain more insight into what’s most effective for our organization.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with (RED), a nonprofit organization that partners with the world’s most iconic brands to generate contributions to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. 100 percent of contributions go to work on the ground, providing prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Fans can join the fight by contributing up to $25 when purchasing tickets for select concerts, sports, theater and family events on Ticketmaster.com and Livenation.com.
This is the one new job that will have a positive impact on your social life: fan up with free and no-fee tickets, exclusive employee ticket giveaways, an unlimited amphitheater "Grass Pass" for you and a friend, and two free tickets per Live Nation summer music festival.
Our people are our number one asset, and one of our most important investments. From tuition reimbursement to ongoing coaching, leadership development, and peer-led learning and innovation sessions, you're in for some serious on-the-job skill sharpening and professional growth.
A career here comes with one of the best packages out there. Stay healthy and happy with comprehensive medical, vision, and dental insurance for you and your family, 401k matching, commuter benefits, and family sick leave. And let's not forget Fido – we even offer pet insurance!
We know you love what you do, but you have other loves too. Bring your dog to work, sign up for paid community service days, set up a public Crowdrise fundraiser for a personal cause and obtain up to $5,000 in matching funds from Live Nation, and enjoy the freedom of flex time.
Our commitment to diversity goes beyond the hiring process. Open to everyone, our vibrant employee resource groups were formed to promote community, create an inclusive workplace culture, and foster personal and professional development. Plus they throw some pretty cool events.
All work and no play? No way! We come together at more than just meetings. In fact, there's a fun get-together on the calendar every month, including our annual Halloween bash and costume contest. Sometimes you can even catch a live band on the roof at our Hollywood headquarters.
Employee resource groups (ERG’s) were formed to embrace diversity and to promote a stronger sense of community within the LNE family. We personally invite our employees to get involved in our opportunities as we cultivate an inclusive company culture that serves as a resource for personal and professional development.
Here's a summary of our ERG's:
Pride Nation aims to promote a positive and inclusive environment for all employees, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity through education, networking and workplace collaboration.
The mission of AZN Nation is to (1) promote greater understanding and awareness of Pan-Asian culture, and (2) foster opportunities for personal and professional development for employees of Pan-Asian descent.
BE@LiveNation's mission is to promote hiring, retention, and career advancement for black employees through education, training, and support network.
WE Nation’s mission is to engage and inspire Live Nation women globally in order to support women in the workplace towards attaining fulfilling careers and address issues affecting women.
Latin Nation’s goal is to provide professional and social networking for employees of Latino descent.
I have been working at Ticketmaster full-time (Less than a year)
Very intelligent driven leadership that empowers teams to be autonomous.
Big investments in building the leadership of the people on the teams.
Team members are trusted.
New ideas are welcomed.
There is nary a book that you mention that someone else in the organization has not read and implemented.
Well structured career ladders.
Many learning opportunities throughout the organization.
Leaders take responsibility for their mistakes, and big mistakes are worn as a badge of pride, because of the mobilization and next steps that were taken to fix them, this is how we learn.
If you are someone who is used to performing poorly and getting away with it -- that doesn't happen here. The dynamics of the team are esteemed above being liked. The values of the company are used in making tough and sometimes unpopular decisions.
Advice to Management
Keep trusting your people and continue your investment strategy -- its amazing the creativity that comes from it!
I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ticketmaster (Hollywood, CA) in March 2017.
Unless you are really skilled and can tolerate aggressive style of interviewing, I would not recommend this company. Even you may encounter doubt over your academic background or diploma. If I am capable candidate I would apply to Google rather.
