    Pros

    Great manager in the Works Registration area who is transparent and willing to try and help you succeed. Work isn't too difficult, but is tedious and requires good attention to detail. ability to work from home and make you own schedule within reason, only after you have been there a while. Good Benefits Solid job in the music industry, especially for entry level candidates. Overall this was a comfortable job where...

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement Seems like the company is more interested in spending money elsewhere instead of investing in their employees. Outdated programs and systems (Although this was supposed to change at the time I left)

  4. "Inside Sales"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Nashville, TN

      I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great parties. Met lots of famous people. Uncapped commissions, Great benifits

      Cons

      Very competitive. The senior reps will steel your deals and management will let them. Very clickish.

      Advice to Management

      Treat all reps equal. Don't give away the deals that you know we worked hard on to others !

      Pros

      None super low salary and low class management

      Cons

      The dregs of society work here -- real low lives. They exploit cheap labor from the worst neighborhoods in the outer boroughs. Gutter trash managers. The pay is so low you cannot pay your rent by working here. Minimum wage salaries. Cut throat. Biggest perk when I interviewed was that you get free hot chocolate. I am not kidding. They talk to you and treat you like a gullible child to be exploited while...

      I have been working at Broadcast Music full-time for more than 19 years

      Pros

      37.5 hour work weeks with work from home options 1-2 days a week. Decent benefits. Nice co-workers.

      Cons

      Current leadership over Sales dept has not gained the trust their frontline staff. Any professional should know that culture and trust go hand in hand. Seems like the dept head just tells people what they want to hear versus actually taking any action to improve processes. No wonder we keep missing goals.

      Advice to Management

      Our CEO is great and he should support cleaning house in Sales. If anyone speaks up, or has good ideas, you will be treated poorly instead of patted on the back. Goals are WAY TO HIGH.

      I worked at Broadcast Music part-time

      Pros

      Free parking and 4 day schedule for the week

      Cons

      Poor commission and incentives, hourly pay is not comparable to work load and goals, and barely living wages. Training for sales in sensitive markets is not sufficient, and parameters around making the sale makes this position more of a collections agent than a sales job.

      Advice to Management

      Management will be very nice upfront and then reviews behind closed doors are already approved by HR and goaled out. If you make millions of dollars for the company you can pretty much act however you want to. If you are learning how to sell in this market and you make any small errors they will send you emails referencing HR handbook and give you a final warning a few weeks in. They will also not provide insurance for...

      Pros

      summer hours, jeans, PTO policy

      Cons

      Toxic, IT management manages by fear, no regard for people or what is to be delivered, only the process, regardless if you are delivering quality or not. No room for growth or innovation.

      Advice to Management

      Take training on how agile is supposed to work. Take training on how to be leaders.

      I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Steady job with good benefits and flexible schedule.

      Cons

      - Employees are not celebrated or promoted. You are a cog in a machine or a hamster in a wheel, nothing else. - Innovation is not encouraged or recognized. If you are a game changer you will not be elevated, you will be cut down. - Compensation is incredibly insulting with raises so low they verge on non existent. -.From the top down, a toxic company culture that reeks of self serving.

      Advice to Management

      BMI could be an awesome company to work for. What they do is incredibly important. WAKE UP!
