    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sony/ATV full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will never be bored at this job! There is always something to do daily as well as the occasional perks. The more you put yourself out there the more rewarded you are. The assistant community really stuck together and you always had them helping you out.

    Cons

    During high season (before holidays, during Grammys, etc..) a lot of the work will fall solely on the assistant with few direction of management. Things get VERY very stressful at times but if you have great organization skills, expect it going in, and enjoy being busy you can succeed. You do however need to work hard and be very very patient if you want to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Have better more open relationships with your assistants as they are your right-hand man/woman.

    Pros

    Laid back, good pay, make own schedule, friendly corporate side.

    Cons

    Long late hours, Studio location, Executive corporate structure stifled some clients.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what and who your writers need to get in the creative zone and remember, the studio is a sanctuary. For an engineer, focus on our skill not our ability to schmooze.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sony/ATV full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Working for some of the biggest songwriters/artists is very exciting. Being the leader in your field looks great on your resume.

    Cons

    Politics can be tricky to navigate. The culture is not one that encourages diversity. It is very easy to feel like you are replaceable. Sometimes you question how upper management made it to their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture. Encourage growth.
