    Enjoyable work environment.

    I have been working at Live Nation Entertainment

    Pros

    Most everyone is very friendly and seems to enjoy their jobs. My direct boss is great. He knows when things need to be done, but also can make work enjoyable.

    Cons

    As with most office environments, there is some snippy passive aggressive things between some employees.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very exciting industry, every day is different. Everyone works very closely as a team and as a family to complete projects. It's not just about the office work- Onsite is fun, fast-paced, and exciting.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, especially when split between the office and onsite concert days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more full time positions to keep people dedicated to the company and to make them feel like part of the family.

    Laissez Faire / Weak Leadership

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Live Nation is an interesting company in a fun and sexy industry. You will definitely have the opportunity to work on some interesting projects and co-workers are friendly. As a whole, being employed by Live Nation definitely provides some unique experiences.

    Cons

    The two major cons with Live Nation is the benefits package and weak leadership. The pay, I suppose, can be attributed to the fact that you're in the entertainment industry. The weak leadership, however, is because the company doesn't seem to really care about fostering good leaders that know how to manage other people. This is really a shame because work in general is interesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing in serious management training and reevaluating why certain people are "leaders." Are some people "leaders" because they've been there a long time and talk a big game?

    More formal orientation and training to learn how to actually perform job descriptions and what is expected of employees.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment part-time

    Pros

    Everything about the entertainment industry was really different from anything I've ever done and that kept the position so interesting. No day was like the next and there was always something to keep you on your toes and not realize the long hours you are working. The perks were great.

    Cons

    I don't believe that the upper management was compensated enough for their positions. I heard that people who had been working there full time for 3-5 years still were not on a salary or offered any benefits

    I have been working at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company is over all great to work for. Great benefits and perks for the job and I have worked with some amazing people in multiple different departments.

    Cons

    Sponsorship is kind of looked like an outsider so moving to a different department is almost impossible. Also in the position I am in there is not much room for growth. The growth includes either moving or becoming a seller for sponsorship which is not an interest for me. I take a lot of pride in my work but the company tends to take advantage in that by owning you all of the time.

    Pros

    Working in the Concert Industry. Work environment was fun. coworkers were friendly, Good part time job. getting to listen to bands while getting paid.

    Cons

    Compensation was a little more than minimum wage even after working there for 5years. All staffing was put in by a spreadsheet not real time needs. Very minimal pay. and really no benefits. Could be a dangerous and stressful enviroment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees they may have good ideas. stop treating venue like a high school where petty issues can cause you to have stress.
