      Pros

      The best digital team in the music industry. Lots of resources are available to set digital marketers succeed.

      Cons

      There is no training, you have to be a quick learner and figure out how to do your job in real time. Leadership is very nice but not the best at actually leading.

      Pros

      you get to say you're working for Atlantic Records cool events cool artists to work with gain knowledge with various workshops saying all of these pros its not worth it to work here with the cons you can do most of these things outside of working at major labels

      Cons

      very cliquey everyone has been around for ages and they're less open to new people even though people come and go like a revolving door the people who stay are ones who won't make it out of atlantic's bubble a lot of fakes and very political make sure to sift out your supervisor - mine did not set me up for success and I was a ploy to make them look good and save the day beware of catty and territorial fights on workload. it's a very toxic environment where people point fingers and you have to constantly get things in writing because there is no team synergy and things fall through the cracks
