    I worked at Sony Music Entertainment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great location, free shows, cool office

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Unfriendly colleagues who are only looking to push themselves forward and thrive off of putting others down/making them feel small. I worked with multiple departments/labels and each one was a fight for who had the biggest ego, and worked with the coolest artists. There are a few genuine people, but it's hard to come by. It felt very much like high school. If you're willing to truly give up work/life balance, play the corporate ladder game, and have an impenetrable exterior then you can thrive here. I quickly learned that there's more to life than this. Whenever I went to HR they were unhelpful and unable to do anything, even with written proof of harassment. Sad that such an incredible medium such as music produces such a toxic behind the scenes environment.

    I have been working at Sony Music Entertainment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A great working environment. I am learning the internal aspect of recruitment different from my past experience in staffing agencies. Sony Music has its own restaurant, coffee bar, and cafeteria catering to their employees. If I can Yelp about the cafeteria similar to an Urbanspace setup, I would hehe! I love working for Sony Music and doing what I am passionate for which is sourcing and connecting LinkedIn candidates with what Sony Music Entertainment has to offer them a better opportunity to join us.

    Cons

    There are no cons for me.
