      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Warner Music full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      - Upper management stays out of employees' way to develop strong culture

      Cons

      - Pay is way under market value, and you'll be treated like a villain for trying to close the gap

      Advice to Management

      Pay employees fair market value. Simple enough.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Warner Music full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good benefits Cool new office (although "open" floor plan can be challenging and noisy). Name-brand company (but they think you should just be grateful to work here because of it and don't offer many other benefits besides having a big name on your resume).

      Cons

      There are way too many VPs/SVPs/EVPs. The pay is incredibly low, even for industry standards. No growth opportunities/career pathing for lower levels. Crazy hours and people are regularly in the office until 8 pm, and then go home and continue working. Morale is low and many people seem to be looking to leave or actually leaving. Serious lack of diversity that they don’t seem to care about.

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

      Pros

      Everyone is so willing to teach you and learn more from you, the work space is so spread out especially since the move to DTLA.

      Cons

      It's really hard to talk to the SVPs and VPs

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Warner Music full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Exciting and intriguing work, tons of perks like advance CDs and concert tickets

      Cons

      Workplace politics to a disheartening degree, more cutthroat the higher up the food chain you go. A glass ceiling still exists for “certain” people based on factors having nothing to do with work performance. Average work day averages 9-15 hours with quickly capped overtime.
