I worked at Gracenote as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

I really like the laid back feel of the office environment. There are comfortable collaboration areas and always a fully stocked kitchen! People move around the office often and are always willing to give input on a project. There are tons of intelligent and fun people.

Cons

There are times when projects don't move as fast because people are always working on several initiatives.

Advice to Management

Try to give a littttttttle more time to your smaller projects.

    I have been working at Gracenote as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some really talented people...many with a passion for music...

    Cons

    This is first and foremost a metadata management and syndication firm. After 5 years with SONY, Tribune purchased the company at a fire sale price. People here are very clique-oriented and keep to their own group. I think they're waiting for the post-merger layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more collaboration between working groups. Require accountability from IT to avoid one catastrophic failure after another with the Tribune parent groups.

    I have been working at Gracenote full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many chances to learn through talking to everyone in a flat work environment. A lot projects going on here. People are energetic here. Always interesting to explore new stuff from difference department

    Cons

    It seems a lot people here work for difference projects at the same time. You cannot ask people to focus on your project only because they may have other tasks to take care of as well.
