    I have been working at Warner Music full-time

    Pros

    Great teams and employees, you'll learn a lot - mostly about yourself. Everyone makes loads of effort to make it a nice environment to work and play in.

    Cons

    Having to be a 'Yes' team in an overlooked department takes its toll. Especially when you work so hard to make a difference.

    OK for some, wrong for me

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Warner Music

    Pros

    Reasonably relaxed environment, arts based company, nice colleagues, good pay (with market matching), reasonable benefits

    Cons

    Long standard hours of business, unable to work from home, uk office is in a poor location - difficult to balance family commitments with working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggest some shift working patterns - e.g. 8.30 to 5 and a 9.30 to 6 pattern.

    Look at remote access options.

    I worked at Warner Music as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Really connected with everyone, was able to be extremely hands on, learned an incredible amount, very supportive work environment, really became a part of the family

    Cons

    No jobs available, employers were not extremely helpful when it came to helping find a new opportunity, going through a ton of changes at the moment and instability causes tension

    I worked at Warner Music

    Pros

    Laid back, given a lot of freedom in terms of not much micromanagement you are given your assignments and must take the power and time to complete them. The headquarters is in an awesome place and the building is really nice.

    Cons

    The work can get repetitive. Doing the same thing over and over got boring to me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction
