I have been working at Gracenote full-time

Pros

Leadership has come to Gracenote and made all the difference. Hard work is recognized and Individual growth is promoted. Co-workers are interesting and highly diverse. Most have a real life outside work. Turnover is extremely low.

Cons

Middle management is truly mediocre, ineffective, shows undue favoritism, micro manages. Peter principle alive and well. Salarys are way behind industry standards.

Advice to Management

OK to hire managers from outside, don't promote to management just because. Favoritism is the root of mediocracy. You need to address the underlying sexism in the culture. Being a boys club is ultimately a bad business plan.

    "Good people to work with, but a very stressed environment and too complex systems"

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with people from various places and background. Great view from the office building.

    Cons

    High stress environment and a very complex and outdated system is being used here. Management does not give enough importance to updating the system to meet the growing demands and new customers are always more important than building a better product. Pay is not that good. Can be tiring and frustrating to work here.
