    I have been working at Music Reports full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Independent environment
    Cake days once a month

    Cons

    Work never ends.
    No Perks (we're in the music industry!)
    Monotonous work.
    OKay Pay
    Almost no chance of moving up within the company

    Advice to Management

    It's not a crime to have a connection with your colleagues. Management needs to have a better balance of being social and being able to answer questions while working on projects. Lots of times when I have questions to ask, a manager will be busy 80 percent of the time working on things rather than managing their department

    Pros

    Very casual environment. Frequently get to work on new projects and new challenges, and company is involved in some innovative work in the field of Intellectual Property law. Very strong legal intel (the organization's most valued attribute). Very stable company, especially compared to the music industry overall, with some big clients. Small enough company that senior management is accessible. Not too much red tape when you need to get something done. Certainly room for growth for those with interest in the subject matter and the right skill sets (or willingness to train and acquire the right skill sets).

    Cons

    Environment can be too casual, with conflicts between employees who are more proactive and other employees who work at their own pace and few means of objective resolution. Wide variety of skill level amongst workers creates a strong 20/80 work ratio. And few standardized methods of performance evaluation can create compensation disparities (rare, but can happen). Also few standardized formats for information exchange/reporting can cause miss-communications and redundancy. The occasional growing pain can also derail otherwise on track projects (but better to have growing pains then downsizing).

    Advice to Management

    Some business leaders do have an open door and open ear policy. But few are ready to actually act on new ideas suggested by the organization's "followers" beyond lip service. This creates a stagnant layer of bubbling ideas which are discussed briefly but never acted on (and so add no business values) but serve as constant distraction from the current processes in place.

    Pros

    GREAT work environment: casual dress, respectful bosses, autonomy, good pay, great benefits. High profile clients so you acquire great work experience.

    Cons

    Workload can pile up quickly and can get boring/repetitive. Depending on your department, not many opportunities for fun outside of work responsibilities with your colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline your processes so that your client operations are more efficient. Often are the employees not fully equipped with the necessary tools that should be available for contemporary technology companies.
