    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a sponsorship coordinator, I got to work on-site at the music venues. Being immersed in the concert/music scene was amazing - I even got to watch some of the concerts! My boss was great - she taught me and the other intern the ropes and then let us handle it ourselves, but she was always around the corner if we needed her. She challenged us to solve problems and conflicts on our own, which was very valuable. I worked with the operations and general management teams and got to see the ins and outs of working at a concert venue

    Cons

    Live Nation is a big corporation and it's pretty clear that they care about one thing - money. I had to take this internship for credit (not happy about that, but that seems to be the trend for corporations now) which meant that I had to pay money to then do free work. After my internship was over, I was asked to come back for a second internship. However, they told me I would still be required to take it for credit which meant paying yet again to do free work. This really bothered me. Live Nation is one of the largest entertainment companies in the world and can 100% afford to pay a second time intern, yet they refuse. How can I trust that this company doesn't value money over the well-being of employees? My boss had no say in this either. In fact, she didn't really have a say in anything she did. She more acted as a puppet, doing what she was told from higher up. If you don't mind working for a money-hungry corporation, then I guess this might not be a con. You also must work nights and weekends. Sometimes I didn't get home until 1am from working a show.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Live music experience and concert benefits. Helpful team members and a company full of young people always willing to help. Very excited and different with the ability to work with countless big name companies

    Cons

    Entry level position that is Highly stressful , high expectation, low salary. There is a lot expected out of this position and the compensation sadly is not the best.

    Advice to Management

    This position should not be tracked hourly. It should be a salaried position for the work that is expected

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

    Pros

    This company is over all great to work for. Great benefits and perks for the job and I have worked with some amazing people in multiple different departments.

    Cons

    Sponsorship is kind of looked like an outsider so moving to a different department is almost impossible. Also in the position I am in there is not much room for growth. The growth includes either moving or becoming a seller for sponsorship which is not an interest for me. I take a lot of pride in my work but the company tends to take advantage in that by owning you all of the time.
