    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Company is great. The joy they bring to the world is spectacular. Loved working for the company.

    Cons

    AP department has a bad long history of turmoil. Work for any department you like but avoid AP like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    If hating on the LGBT community, Liberals/snowflakes is being part of the company culture? If having your manager intimidate you, belittle you publicly, and trash talk the team is your thing...Here's the place to be. Never report a hostile work environment.. just put in 2 weeks and find another place.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company with opportunities to travel and learn the industry in a fast-paced environment. Perfect place for your first job since you learn so much in a short period of time... many opportunities to build your resume. Most people are so nice and overall great culture for collaboration. Good benefits and PTO. It was definitely bittersweet to leave.

    Cons

    - Very minimal opportunity for advancement - Pay is too low to comfortably live on - No raises, bonuses or incentives which hurts moral - Lack of leadership from middle management; don't advocate for their staff - No work/life balance during the sport seasons or launch of new shows

    Advice to Management

    Expectations and responsibilities for entry positions increase fast so salary should be based on the scope of work and work ethic, not the job title. A fun industry and comp show tickets don't pay the bills. Invest in your employees' development and outline career plans. Employees will be loyal and retention higher if they can see a future with you.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    You get to travel all of the world as a performer.

    Cons

    The company is beyond unprofessional in so many ways. Almost all managers were just former performers with no formal education or managerial experience. Expect your emails or phone calls to go unanswered for four—yes, FOUR—months on average. The company could not care less about its performers both in terms of health and wellness or employee satisfaction because, in their opinion, all performers are fully and... completely replaceable. The brands that they represent like Disney and Marvel are so strong that families will always come to watch their shows, regardless of the quality. Consequently, they have no impetus to treat their employees well. For many positions, the pay is slightly just above minimum wage and there is essentially zero chance that you'll make substantially more unless you go into management.
