    Pros

    Amazing and talented co-workers. Jon Platts vision has lead to the success of Warner Chappell.

    Cons

    Horrible management... no accountability is held and the company has lost tons of talented employees because of upper management. Extremely high turnover in every department. HR does nothing to help with employee relations.

    Pros

    Pro's are you get to read the names of artists that come across your desk. Cool story bro.

    Cons

    - Zero direction from upper management, especially in the admin dept. - Hard work is not rewarded. - There isn't a path for movement, the only time people see promotions is when other people leave the company. - They do not hire from within so if you're a qualified candidate, you have a better shot at getting a job as an outsider. - The only encouragement for employees to do better is applying pressure. This company operates like it's 1976 and believe a "top-down" style of management works.

    I worked at Warner/Chappell

    Pros

    My boss was great and enthusiastic to teach both employees and interns. No time clock to clock in and out of (which also doubles as a negative because people take advantage). Generally pretty nice coworkers. Upper staff was always friendly to all employees. 7.5 hour work day with a pretty relaxed schedule of when you had to come in. Some report at 7am others came in at 10 am due to family obligations/kids. Company closes its doors week between Christmas and New Years and they pay you for that time. Summer hours mean a five hour work day summer Fridays (another thing people would take advantage coming in late and leaving early). Great health care benefits (Anthem PPO).

    Cons

    You will probably make more money working at Starbucks. You have to beg for promotion. Lots of "great job!", but nothing tangible to back their praise. Creative department are a bunch of premadonna babies. No perks unless you're in creative, so don't think you'll get comp concert tickets to anything or see Billy Joe Armstrong walking these Halls. Witnessed a whole department be let go during a transition phase. Company is moving to DTLA, so your drive from the valley will suck even more now. Watch out who you talk to, because there are a few lifers that love spreading gossip.

    Pros

    Warner/Chappell is on the path to success. CEO John Platt's philosophy is "If the company is successful, everyone should feel it."

    Cons

    There aren't many open positions or career paths available but that has to do more with the music industry itself rather than the company.
