    Good for your resume

    Intern (Current Employee) Beverly Hills, CA (US)

    ProsI do not see many advantages of interning here except for maybe thinking that it will look good on my resume when I try to apply for a real job.

    ConsThere is neither a real internship program nor mentorship from management. You work for long hours and you also do not have many perks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffering real mentorship to interns would be a good start.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was able to be really hands on and work on my own projects.

    ConsI was not paid and there were no concert ticket perks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Usher/Ticket taker

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou get to see a variety of shows (country, metal, oldies,etc.)
    Meet tons of people/ make friends
    Only during the night, so during the summer you have tons of time to go to the beach

    ConsDealing with a lot of intoxication people can be stressful at times
    The shows are not equally spaced out so you can work a total of one week in a month so do not expect a steady paycheck.

    Consistently inconsistent.

    Finance (Current Employee) Hollywood, CA (US)

    ProsThe upper staff of the company wants to make Live Nation a better place to work for, but it doesn't mean everyone else will want that too.

    ConsCan't vouch for other departments, but the ones I work with including mine, lack basic management skills, guilt you into working long hours and don't allow room for creativity. Self care and balancing work and personal life is IMPORTANT- some people think otherwise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDelve into each departments culture and core values...and work within to help make a positive impact on company culture. Departments are similar to states- they all have their own rules, but are still under one country.

    Rule by fear and yelling

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Hollywood, CA (US)

    ProsCompensation was fair.
    The building was pretty.
    The location was great, right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    ConsSenior management very immature. Made decisions with very little understanding of the technology of which they were in charge. Any attempt to educate them was met with hostility.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sponsorship/Sales Intern

    Sponsorship Intern (Current Employee) Hollywood, CA (US)

    ProsKeeping in mind that each department and team dynamic varies, my personal experience at the company has been great. Things I have enjoyed include:
    - Relaxed Environment with no micromanaging
    - Variety of tasks to learn. Bosses are quick to have you do work that matters and actually impacts the business, not just menial labor or busy work
    - Super flexible with scheduling for interns
    - A more culture-savvy and trendy work environment in the Sales department (since these are the guys that need to know which brands will sell and what people want to buy).

    Cons- No pay for interns is probably the biggest concern, but it IS the Music Industry so it's to be expected
    - Free tickets are presented as a perk, but in reality they are near-impossible to get since you can only get tickets to shows at venues that LN owns (3 in my area) to shows that aren't sold out (aka the shows you actually want to go to are probably off the list)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
