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

    Pros

    - Free tickets to concerts
    - Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    - Overworked, underpaid
    - Company is EXTREMELY political
    - Executives take all credit and never thank their employees
    - No room for upward mobility/no raises given
    - Upper management will not trust you, they will never think you are doing your job
    - No communication between departments

    Advice to Management

    Check on your employees and give credit where it is due. Don't be so money hungry and work more on office morale as many of your employees are unhappy.

    Awful management, catty workplace - people are always gossiping about one another, low pay, horribly maintained venues, no training, disconnect between various companies within AEG

    I worked at AEG Live full-time

    Pros

    Exciting work environment
    Access to concerts

    Cons

    Most positions were being overloaded with work. Standard work week was generally 60-80 hours a week for salaried positions and if you don't work that much, there is a vibe that you aren't pulling your weight.
    Upper management seem sympathetic to problems, but don't do anything to actually fix issues.
    Poor communication throughout the departments
    They only ever want the cheapest option they can get regardless of quality of equipment or providers, this usually ended up costing them more in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to spend money on the worthwhile vendors. The company reputation wouldn't be so bad if we didn't seem like the 'budget option' compared to the other promoters in the market.
