    Pros

    Nice building, good co-workers, work functions, benefits and 37.5 hours per week. Occasional live music at work, and ability to work at home a couple days/week.

    Cons

    No room to advance and the sales goals are way too high for anyone to earn a salary that is actually competitive with the current job market.

    Advice to Management

    Re-vamp leaders & promote deserving employees. Pay those who perform well and just care more about your PEOPLE. Keeping your frontline happy should be a goal.

    Pros

    - No shortage of challenging problems in the industry.

    Cons

    - Management is not willing to tackle those problems. Or will pretend to, nothing will actually happen, and they'll blame their employees for their own failure.
    - Culture is a joke; they claim inclusivity, yet management is clearly a white boy's club.
    - If you work in IT, it's likely your boss may think that they can treat you however they want, if they pay you enough. And if it's not enough, then it's your fault you took the job.
    - Managers will look for scapegoats to take the fall for their mistakes, rather than take responsibility themselves.
    - No attempt will be made to understand you or your skill set. You are a cog in a machine, and you will do what you are told.
    - Your opinion will not be heard. Your managers already know what they want, despite not understanding the technology, and you need to go make it happen.

    Advice to Management

    - Replace mid-level management. You have far too many managers who know little about technology, and are too stubborn to admit that others are more experienced.
    - Replace senior-level management. You have far too many senior level executives who show contempt and disrespect for people who are below them. It breeds disloyalty, and fosters a cutthroat environment where no one wins. The fish rots from the head.
    - Focus on your employees and their particular skills. They aren't all one unit who can do anything you ask. They have particular skills, and asking them to do something out of their skill set in very little time is setting them up for failure. See bullet point #1.

    I worked at Broadcast Music full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice facilities. Interesting industry. Health insurance & 401(k).

    Cons

    Management is untrustworthy, disloyal to staff and create a hostile workplace for many. The best and brightest leaders and staff have left or been driven out by less qualified and dishonest individuals with no industry experience and poor leadership skills.

    Advice to Management

    Your New IT mgt and team is undermining the company’s stability and reputation and has decimated the company’s brain trust.
    Company leaders should stop demonstrating, encouraging, and condoning disloyal, unjust and harmful behavior.
    Management should remind themselves that their purpose is to support songwriters and publishers.
    Stop replacing your best independent thinkers, women and older employees with white ‘yes’ men whose abilities and ethics are limited.
    Detox the culture and defend your skilled, loyal employees instead of walking them out the door.
