Pros

Good ompensation, great people, fun work. Everyone has an upbeat attitude, but they are probably after your job.

Cons

Politics, job stability, poor strategy. Everyone is trying to game everyone in the music industry. This place is good, but no exception.

Advice to Management

Hire tech experts into senior exec positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Probably the best reason to work for the Universal Music Group would be the heralth benefits of such a large corporation.

    Cons

    There are too many negatives to list but I can start with Poor Upper Management (i.e. lack of qualified leadership and direction), the lack of HR presence alone is detrimental to the health of the work environment. UMG has gone from being a leader in the music industry to being a slow, monolithic, outdated, inexperienced, financially strapped, poorly managed dinosaur that will eventually have to break down in size in order to keep up with the technological advances and entreprenurial ideologies that will help this industry survive in changing times.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they'll take care of you

    Pros

    You can really learn how the music business operates, which is different then most other entertainment industries. I liked that we were given up to date info about the most current releases and a chance to get free product ever quarter. We were also given an employee discount every quarter to purchase music in their catalogue.

    Cons

    Too many cheifs and not enough indians there. Management tend to be really cocky and almost degrading to it employees. They expect you to know everything right away, and if you don't ,they make it quite known to you and your coworkers that you are stupid and should know of this by now.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to really teach the employees the ways of the business. Give more positive feedback instead of putting people down and making them feel like their stupid. Communication is most important in any business and they need to better communicate to it staff
