    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for, nit because of the interesting subject matter, but because of the people. There are a ton of talented people and the folks that have been there for a while blend well with the incoming people. Folks that have been there a while know that change and evolution is important.

    Cons

    The different divisions could work better together and the fact that it's a decentralized company is not an excuse. People who work in North American Concerts, at all levels, should support the Sponsorship team better. Live Nation was built to be a fantastic proposition for sponsors and all facets of the company should understand that and I'm not certain that many believe that. I actually tried to put a sponsorship deal together for Live Nation that got submarined by someone within the company. How is that a good thing for the company and stockholders.

    Advice to Management

    Because Live Nation is a decentralized company is not an excuse. Synergy used to be a big buzz word that needs to come back at Live Nation. Conflicting interests do happen at big companies, but they should be minimized as much as possible.

    I have been working at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    You get access to the best concerts in the world.
    Free great tickets to a show of your choice every year.
    Networking with other music industry professionals
    Being behind the scenes of music venues where people's favorite artists are soundchecking.
    Holiday breaks off

    Cons

    Too many bosses telling you what to do
    Constant demand to be at work longer than required because "that's the business"
    Disorganized bookers and agents who expect you to cover for their lack of preparation
    No work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    You must focus on creating a more work-life balance and promoting a company culture otherwise you'll have a bunch of zombies working for you with no incentives to give more when they are running on empty as it is.
