    I worked at Red Bull Media House full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent people overall, access to a lot of cool events. Heavy party culture from top to bottom. Not uncommon to find yourself partying until the sun comes up with your boss.

    Cons

    Complacent people and vision from top to bottom. Most people talk about changing the direction of the brand, but nobody takes action. Everyone insists on "keep doing what works." A lot of older people point to the glory days as "what works." There is also a lack of alignment with counterparts in USA/Austria.

    Advice to Management

    CHANGE! The brand is stale, the content is stale and the next wave of consumers has no interest in Red Bull as a product, brand or media company.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, exactly what you would expect. Great balance between work and play.

    Cons

    Management/Leadership skills. Lack of focus on overall department strategy.


  6. "Great culture for younger professionals, scattered leadership."

    Pros

    Pay is good and minimal micromanagement. Flexible schedule as long as you get your work done. Very fun events and parties.

    Cons

    Leadership indecision. Company is largely run out of Austria making it hard to gel as one unit and advance in the States.

    Advice to Management

    More one-on-one time

    I worked at Red Bull Media House full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Award winning product built by a good team, then it went downhill form there.

    Cons

    Experienced leadership was let go.
    New leadership is green and subdued to the clueless leadership @headquarters.
    There is no more team, divas run wild and out of control.
    Path forward is driven by inflated egos and/or fear.

    Advice to Management

    Any such action would be an exercise in futility...
