    Pros

    Definitely a great place to build a foundation in the industry, amazing growth potential and a fabulous work environment to work in.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little too much for the person that they cannot handle the workload or might be overwhelmed in retrospect of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on trying to do what you think you can offer in the industry and do not give up on the hopes of your dreams.

    I have been working at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Committed to developing and providing high quality applications designed with end users in mind; great work-life balance fostered by management from the top down; flexible work hours with work-from-home opportunities; teamwork and a collaborative work environment aren't just talked about, they're embraced and expected

    Cons

    Traffic in and around Hollywood can be dreadful at times; have to continually attempt to overcome an often very negative public perception (e.g. high/unnecessary service fees)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - keep focusing on the customer and on your employees and they'll continue to take care of you in return.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Something new every day, love to meet the crews from the tours that come in, FANTASTIC in-house production team, lots to learn but everyone loves to help

    Cons

    Work days can last up to 17-20 hours, and you need to mentally prepare for that. The pay is higher than minimum, but it's still very little at the end of the day.

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

    Pros

    Investing heavily in tech to enhance products, well positioned for continued growth (can't replace a live experience), solid management team (some clean up happened in the last couple of years that greatly improved the culture and focus throughout the company), open minded about growth opportunities and generous vacation.

    Cons

    There is a relentless dedication to getting this right. In the long term this is a good thing but sometimes in the short term there is time spent on getting things right that aren't a priority/don't matter.

    Advice to Management

    As the economy continues to improve will need to address compensation to be competitive.
