    Pros

    You have the opportunity to go to a lot of shows and meet interesting people from the music industry. It is exciting to go to a show and now that the system used is Meyer Sound.

    Cons

    There was a lot of favoritism and it was extremely obvious. Efforts are not appreciated and upper management has poor communication with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and do not play favorites.

    I have been working at Meyer Sound full-time

    Pros

    Very passionate, friendly, and knowledgeable technical teams with people you can make friends that you can keep for life. Flexible schedule. Family culture. People work hard and are very proud of the company.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, there are no periodic review structures. You either ask or you get nothing.
    Family-based company where decision-making and strategy do not follow any defined processes. Can feel chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to keep your employees happy.

    I worked at Meyer Sound as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment was very relaxed, and most people there seemed to take their work pretty seriously all the same. This is a nice combination. Plus, the coffee machines are automatic, so there's never an issue with people not refilling coffee. This is paradigmatic of the experience at large. Where possible, amenities were made constant so that there was no issue of work environment responsibility.

    Cons

    The work place is multicultural, and if you do not have experience with this kind of environment, thins may be difficult for you to adjust to, if you are in the assembly departments for example.

    I have been working at Meyer Sound full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meyer nurtures a culture where everyone contributes to a common goal of producing the highest quality products that are designed to last forever. Nothing, nothing gets overlooked.

    Cons

    Individualists, people wanting shortcuts, those who do not work well in teams, who fear chance taking, and especially those who do not have a passion for audio, will not do well here. Another possible con is that you can get so into your work that you forget to go home.
