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

Pros

Very relaxed, casual work atmosphere. Could decorate my work space any way I wanted. Was neat knowing that I worked for a company that helped musicians make music and rock 'n' roll.

Cons

They're very tight with the dollar there. Had to stay at lower end hotels and was forced to share hotel rooms when traveling on business. Ridiculous!

    Pros

    Good discounts if you're a musician, jeans and tshirts, diverse group, fun people, good work/life balance

    Cons

    Low pay, generally no room for career growth, unfair promotions (if any), no good benefits

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to retain and make your hard working employees happy. People are tired of hearing the same old lame excuses for not giving merit increases.

    Hire people that know what they are doing.
