    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment

    Pros

    There is a good work life balance.For someone who is always up for a new challenge, being able to move from a development team, to a marketing group, to services, and back again, provides the intellectual challenge that many people seek – without having to update the resume and embark on a job search.

    Cons

    Lot of politics happens at the higher. The benefits were less. Not a paymaster.There was not much socialising or team lunches organized by the management.

    Pros

    I learned a lot at this internship. I was given a lot to do so I never really had idle time.

    Cons

    They don't pay. Considering the fact that I was basically a marketing coordinator for the department I was in putting in 8-9 hours everyday I was there, it would have been nice to get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Do intern seminars so they can learn about the company and other departments.

    Cons

    -Some days were a bit slow
