    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've seen more shows and concerts than most can ever imagine. I've met great people and had a time of my life. Most local employees are really good and fun then be with.

    Cons

    You have to choose if you want to have a personal life or work life, but you can't have both. I've seen more lives and families destroyed from people who work for LN as a career choice. It is a very big good old boy network. Good employees have been fired because their boss doesn't like them, most of the time because they question their actions. I'd love to see a book about the scandals and dark secrets of Live Nation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be greedy and pay your employees more, especially the ones who give their life to you. Stop covering the secrets of your long time good old boy employees. Learn from Weinstein, you have enough of them on your staff too.
