    I worked at Ticketmaster full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Job wasn't bad. Office was really nice. Often got free tickets to lots of events and celebrated holidays with free food. Awesome atmosphere

    Cons

    Pay wasn't so great although overtime was approved. No room for growth. Very long hours because there is never ending work.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees more. Pay employees more. Offer a career path so employees will feel inclined to stay and grow with the company.

    I worked at Ticketmaster for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Progressive company with great benefits and perks. It's a very laid back corporate culture and the company does a lot to keep employees engaged.

    Cons

    Depending on what department your in, it could be a dream job or the job from hell. Some positions do not pay well and require long hours. The company has a history of not taking care of employees during times of downsizing.

    Advice to Management

    Communication throughout the company is very poor.

    I worked at Ticketmaster full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you don't like a dress code and want to be yourself without having to put on a corporate face, this is the place to work. People here are real and very intelligent. The projects are very challenging and you won't be bored.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end. Long hours, late nights, weekends. Limited telecommute. Middle management can play games some times and don't follow strict policies (which can be bad). Coworkers can be a bit abrasive, non-PC environment. Practically everyone is sexist (all the male execs get the window offices, female execs get the inner, non-windowed offices). Stress level can get pretty high. Incompetent or lazy employees don't get fired; they get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    I wrote a big letter to Nathan before I left outlining exactly what's wrong with the culture and the treatment/compensation of the tech staff. Some middle managers have ego trips and don't have the company's best interest in mind. Massive turnover of top talent is a huge issue.
