    Pros

    Working with Rock Stars and having amazing stories to tell friends.

    Cons

    Pay, stability, and attitudes are bad.

    Rewarding employees that have given many hours would be a huge plus. Maybe offering first choice on the schedules, or first dibs on new job openings.

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

    Pros

    There were lots of cool shows coming in and out of there. You got to be up close with some great performers.
    Everyone in the office is friendly, and seems to get along really well.
    The location is great on 2nd street, lots of places to walk around.

    Cons

    The office is dark, very dark with no light coming in from the outside.
    In general, people don't really seem to love their job.
    The cafeteria is shared with the employees at the W, and it is extremely small... one choice of food whatever they are making that day and a salad bar. Not great.
    It is a pretty small office so little to no room for growth.
    You need to stay late many nights for shows, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for doing well.
