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

Pros

Good compensation
Good benefits
Entertainment industry (could be plus or minus)

Cons

Senior management has no respect for their subordinates, which is reflected all the way down the corporate ladder. Prepare to be treated as a peon.
Some groups have great leadership, but generally it's average-to-nonexistant
Poor work-life balance

Advice to Management

Stop spreading nice-sounding B.S. in corporate meetings and focus on implementing some of the corporate culture you profess to support.

    Pros

    You are close to the concert and ticketing business.

    Cons

    Satisfaction depends on which manager you get and whether your team has good team dynamics. The mobile development group has horrible team dynamics, dysfunctionally incommunicative team leads, political favoritism. Growth or training or junior people was not encouraged and little hands on dialogue in actively training new people. You get penalized for expressing your point of view and if you ask for help, then you are thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Support your newer employees who don't know nearly as much as your senior people. Everyone is always learning in the field of software development, so you can't expect everyone to know everything. Allow for dissenting opinions and positive contribution, and less egomania.
