I have been working at Universal Music Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Work with amazingly smart and motivated people... Access to some of the biggest names in music... Never a dull moment, and lots of perks.

Cons

Very long hours, and the job has the potential to become your life and not leave much time for anything else... Intense pressure.

    I worked at Universal Music Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    An atmosphere that any college grad will be excited to work in and learn the industry. Long hours but great work ethic among other employees. I was able to introduce change and streamline old processes easily. Seeing bands at night was a great perk.

    Cons

    No cons. It's sad times change and industries such as music has been so hard. My experience was during the high times. Only a few of my friends made it through all the mergers and downsizing.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to give perks such as event tickets to lower staff. A monthly raffle would be a great motivator.

    I worked at Universal Music Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company was very flexible with time off and appointments (doctors, dentists, etc). We enjoyed a TON of perks like free concert tickets and meet&greets.

    Cons

    A lot of the management and employees aren't required to have a college degree. Also, home office was very corporate. The dress code was almost too lax.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smarter people!
