    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting environment
    Room to grow
    Passionate people genuinely seeking to improve the experience for both the fans and the industry as a whole

    Cons

    Extremely poor renumeration packages. While this is par for the course though the industry, Live Nation are allowing a lot of talent to slip through their fingers as employers leave to earn higher amounts (at least 50% in most cases) in other sectors. LN might want to consider being the exception to the rule.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff what they are worth and perhaps there will be improved staff retention

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    The "LiveNation" name, consisting of Ticketmaster, Insomniac, and many others. Good perks and brand name.

    Cons

    Company still has a lot of internal politics and struggles between LiveNation and Ticketmaster, with a difference of cultures and and personalities (old and new). Mergers and acquisitions (LiveNation + Ticketmaster) are supposed to be synergistic and a "win-win", but that is not the case here.

    Advice to Management

    Get over the egos and emotions, and think for the company.
