Get to see live music.
Livenation does not care about its people at all. They will use you up and spit you out if you have any opinion other than those of the top white men in leadership. HR is a joke - they allow toxic and hostile work environments to continue despite multiple complaints from various staff members. HR is not there to help you, they are there to protect the company from you. So many conflicts of interest in this business. Managers hiring family members and significant others with no experience but then give them more money than other people in similar roles. There is zero training so be expected to teach yourself everything while also working 70-100 hours a week regularly. There is no one to help you as every venue is setup different. Everyone that was worth keeping was replaced when a new white man was put in charge. Be ready to work amongst narcissists and a lot of them. Price gauging is the ultimate goal for livenation; how can we squeeze more money out of every guest.5

*Get to gain a behind the scenes look at the music industry and some of what goes into each live event *Make all kinds of industry connections *You have an ever changing work environment where you never what's to come each day you work
*Long hours (usually no less than 14 hour days) *Sometimes frustrating tours that are hard to work with

Great people and culture, with a focus on developing their staff
Work life balance isn't great due to the fast paced environment and tight deadlines

Very inclusive and diverse work environment. They believe in having fun while getting the job done. Decent benefits for part-time employees. Room for upward movement.
The pay could be increased for this position.Live Nation Entertainment Response5y

Good location, young and interesting team.
Extremely immature and political work environment. Ridiculous project schedules with a sweatshop atmosphere.1Live Nation Entertainment Response8y
Thanks for your comments, agree that technical capability is extremely important and we will be looking for this when hiring certain roles. To balance that we also hire people for their leadership traits and attitude, so a balance of academia and personality aims to create a more inclusive environment.

Fun and interesting work environment. Tickets when work was done.
If you don't like talking to people, don't take this job. The public can be the worst sometimes.
