      Coworkers are great, most of the people make it a good daily experience.

      Flexibility with no room for advancement

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Many of the departments offer flexible work hours for employees. Some even work from home. There are perks to being in the music industry such as sometimes getting tickets to events. The HR department does a good job of providing a well done employee appreciation day each year. In some departments, the salaries are in line with private industry salaries.

      Cons

      There are very limited opportunities for advancement. Promotions may be given out, but they do not result in much of an advancement. There is a clear preference of male employees to female employees in some departments. There is also a clear wall between upper management and everyone else. This results in an inability to be heard.

      Needs to work on communication

      Pros

      The friendships that were made while being apart of the company. The employee get togethers.

      Cons

      Communication in the Nashville office is bad. They over work part timers and expect them to devote all their time to a part time job. Hours are not as flexible as they used to be. It's very hard to feel comfortable to talk to upper management, it seems they look down on you. HR will "listen" to your concerns, but it seems that they never try to fix situations or look further into them.

      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 upper management salaries are well over 1 million dollars a year. Yes they rob their employees so the fat cats can get fatter.

      Don't Recommend! Bad Culture

      Jul 8, 2017 - Coordinator in Nashville, TN

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - One pro, it's a job. So there's that, bills paid. - You might or might not get to see a country singer or songwriter inside the building (not often but from time to time) - When I worked there it was 37.5 hours per week

      Cons

      - The culture is bad. Not just a corporate America type of your just a number. The culture is filled with management and upper management people who are unethical. And if you think you can go to HR, they aren't on the straight and narrow either. They follow the puppet strings of upper management and they are not confidential. I hope in the time since I've left some changes have been made, but I doubt it. The company is filled with those who should be let go or retired soon, because they are part of the good ole boys club or older women who've supported the club for so long they're in it too. They aren't in the present age and don't know how to follow their own policies and hold people accountable for breaking them. They just tell the lower ranked employee to go sit back down and don't ripple the waters and keep the shady culture going. - In the 7 years I worked there, the benefits declined, the holidays declined, the hours went up, and other benefits declined. - The pay is below the market. Welfare. - There is no growth or movement. They know someone will want to back fill your position off the street because they're in the music industry and the newbie will just see lights and glitter, so they won't try to keep you and if you complain they'll show you the door. No loyalty to high performers. - I am not a scorned former employee posting this for revenge. I performed at a high level all 7 years. I saw what was around me. Some done to me, some done around me. I'm posting so others can make an informed decision on a company they are considering to have as an employer. Someone they'll lean on for career development and to pay their bills. There are better companies out there that value employees and where you'll have a great work life and work/life balance. Coworkers who care, managers who care. This company doesn't have that ( I know the difference now).

      Pros

      Co-workers are friendly and generally nice to work with. Good Benefits. Upcoming move to new building. Unique job tasks and challenges existing within the company.

      Cons

      Very uptight environment and way too corporate for an entertainment company. Snobbish attitudes in upper management. No flexibility in working hours. Low morale and distrust of company among workers due to layoffs. Most workers feel their jobs are threatened. Current building environment and work stations are poor.
