    I worked at Muzak, LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great and unique selling points. Conquered the music and marketing on hold market. Great relationship with Bose. Exciting and great benefits at the time. 1993-95

    Cons

    Moving to North Carolina was not an option. Very sad. Only negative other than that, was getting large accounts for background music. Seemed all were established.

    I worked at Muzak, LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn a technical trade, experience, peers are understanding. Lots of down time waiting on material you should already have.

    Cons

    Low pay, no training program, managed by bonus incentive managers - so you use 30 year old service vehicles, re-use outdated our unsafe materials trying to save a penny.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, make money by increasing efficiency, skill level, and better pay will result in less turn over, less time lost training green techs.

    I worked at Muzak, LLC (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a very great place to work at, all of the employees worked together to make sure the jobs get done. The company all ways put safety first.

    Cons

    The company had multiple warehouses open across the US. The company was sold and they started to close all the warehouses in the US. I feel the company should have gave the employees more time to move on to find another job.

    Advice to Management

    The company gave me a chance to be come a supervisor , i think it was a great company to work for but the management i think all the manager should have said something about closing the warehouse.

    Pros

    Independent working environment. You can make your own schedule as long as your selling.

    Company is not competitive with all the new technology being offered by the competition.

    Get with the times.

    Many good people that are trying ,but not in management, industry is in trouble

    Cons

    Inferior products,technology,and worst of all the music is irritating and repetitious

    Pros

    Enjoyed the location and environment. Music playing all day, friendly people, fun events. The business was interesting and could be challenging.

    Cons

    Never got raises, bonuses, incentives. Good old boys club. Hard work was not rewarded, so was unmotivated to try harder. There was a culture of apathy - do your 8 hours, don't care about anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people who work hard. People moved on quickly because they were never acknowledged, while you had a bunch of managers who didn't contribute anything beyond seniority; yet were always promoted.

  8. "Different from the normal corporate office, loud music, lots of t-shirts and jeans, pretty antiquated systems."

    Pros

    The ever present music was OK one day, grating the next. It was totally understandable and accepted that most people wore noise canceling headphones.

    Cons

    The ever present loud music and headphones meant interactions with coworkers was strained or people just kept isolated in their own noise canceling world.

    Advice to Management

    Tone it down, trying too hard to be The Valley. Got bigger problems.

    I worked at Muzak, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great environmental to work in with a very artistic flair; we had a lot of fun. Muzak "idol" and Halloween were always entertaining events along with other city center events when customers were onsite.

    The daily changing music genres and parking.
