    I have been working at AEG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with talented people, exciting events and opportunities for networking, leaving early before the holidays, free or discounted tickets to concerts and sporting events. A lot of reviews on here are from interns or part-time employees. It's a different experience when you are a permanent, full-time employee. You and the company are much more invested in each other. I have worked at many different companies and organizations - AEG is by far the best place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    Being in the heart of downtown Los Angeles makes for the worst traffic. Once you get to work it makes the commute worth it though. It's also difficult to get into this company because there are so many applicants for a position, but once you do you're in and there are many opportunities to advance as long as you work hard. I wish they started off my salary higher but I am grateful for the opportunity and don't mind working my way up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Many people in upper-management have been promoted within the company which helps inspire newer employees like myself.

    I worked at AEG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You will learn the entertainment industry from top to bottom at AEG. Fast paced atmosphere with events that never end. There is a great deal of personal satisfaction in pulling off high profile events

    Cons

    Leadership is more concerned with empire building rather than supporting those who work for them. I personally saw a "manager from hell" who would manipulate his employees to do his bidding by pulling hours and favoring others. This person was a HR disaster in the making but was connected. Document EVERYTHING

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a great big picture vision but you need to develop upper and mid level leaders to actually lead rather than treat the environment like their own Game of Thrones.

    Pros

    The office culture in the sales department of the LA Galaxy is fantastic

    Cons

    The only con I would say is the location of the Galaxy offices. StubHub Center can be quite the commute.
