    I have been working at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers
    Unique company and business
    Lots of business growth potential
    Good Benefits
    Good flexibility

    Cons

    Careers paths are often very unknown.
    Upper management roles more frequently filled from the outside in recent years
    Lack of Diversity, just check out the management profiles on LN investors site.
    Lack of training and education for entry and mid career employees
    Under-support and underinvest in technology
    Pay is intentionally targeted in the 25th percentile range

    Advice to Management

    Business technology systems need to be rethought. Regular failures of existing and new systems rollouts due to lack of personnel to support proper development and management. LN is unique and that means out of the box software doesn't fit. Need to invest more.
    Actually invest in training and development not just token online tutorials.
    Increase pay targets to cut down on turnover. Time to get competitive now that unemployment is low.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive; work was varied and often challenging and stimulating; worked with really nice people; work related travel was interesting and fun; and benefits were good.

    Cons

    A little political in some areas of the company; if you aren't extraverted and assertive you'll struggle to make connections outside of your division; working in the Hollywood office was tough to get in and out of during summer months and holidays do to traffic and special events.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder in making Live Nation a place people want to work by establishing good values, long term strategy/mission, and more opportunities to work in different businesses throughout the organization.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment as an intern

    Pros

    Learned a lot about concert marketing and got valuable mentorship from my supervisor. Getting to go to some Live Nation shows was also a plus! Busy atmosphere with a lot of different events going on.

    Cons

    Not too much interaction with other interns, it's unpaid (but don't expect anything paid if you want to intern in entertainment)

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for interns to get to know different departments at Live Nation (e.g. Lunch and Learns, Intern workshops)
