    I have been working at Kobalt Music Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -smart colleagues who are helpful and generally proactive
    -great health benefits and generous company contribution, compensation is fair but could be better
    -company experiencing tremendous growth and is scaling exponentially - lots of opportunities to develop skills and take ownership of projects
    -senior leaders (while very busy) actually care about growth of their employees and are accessible

    Cons

    not many to mention that isn't the same reality of being at a company in hyper growth mode....

    -sometimes feels like it would be good to have a clearer understanding of the company strategy

    Advice to Management

    more opportunities for front office and back office to collaborate in work and social settings; more frequent all-hands meetings

    I have been working at Kobalt Music Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast growing company, people are carefully recruited and the company is made of great individuals. Being part of a music revolution is cool and you have the chance to learn many things. At the beginning you learn a lot about the business and it's very important. The company trains you well. Socials started to become very fun in the last year.

    Cons

    Few interaction between the various departments. Working in the publishing one is very demanding. Many internal process to deal with and learning curve stopping after about 1.5 years so you miss to see a career ahead. Almost everyone in the company gets involved with music events (gigs, conferences) except for peole working in tech and publishing. It's quite unfair.

    Advice to Management

    You' ve made a lot of progress recently but there's still much to do. More internal developmente and career opportunities are needed. Let publishing people feel they are part of a music company and feed them with more to learn
