    I have been working at Feld Entertainment for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Family oriented, great company culture, exciting.

    Cons

    Feel distant from corporate and there isn't a lot of opportunity for advancement if you are not in headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Allow better opportunities for those in their satellite offices to grow. Arrange company meet and greats at the shows when they are in town. I think they miss out on an excellent training/learning opportunity to allow their employees who do a lot of the behind the scenes functions witness how their efforts contribute to the successful running of the show.

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

    Pros

    The brands for the company portfolio are second to none. The perks or working within the live entertainment industry are what keeps employees around for so long.

    Cons

    Pay... pay... pay. Most employees except for upper management are SEVERELY underpaid and overworked. There is very limited room for upward mobility and they do not recognize outstanding employees. If you do a good job, you just get more work on your plate and no increase in salary unless you are upper management. You also work most nights and weekends ON TOP of working a full 40 hour week, since that is when the... shows take place.

    Pros

    Paid to travel if you are on the show side.

    Cons

    Under-standard pay, poor benefits, and you are completely and utterly disposable and replaceable. No advancement opportunities, poor communication with corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees they are valued and not just numbers.

    I worked at Feld Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Working with performers and being a part of the shows!

    Cons

    I worked there many years ago though I have no doubt the same people are still on the top. No appreciation for hard work or talent. They rewarded mediocre workers and suppressed creativity and talent as those at the top are threatened. If you smoke cigarettes and take a lot of breaks but kiss butt or if you have no college they prefer you so they don't have to pay you. Little chance for advancement unless you are a... redneck! Gossip and backstabbing even from supervisors.

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

    Pros

    Great environment. Free tickets to their shows, plus free tickets to show previews. The free tickets also cover international shows, so you can invite your friends, or personally attend the shows when traveling. Very nice! Good management and CEO's. They are all very friendly.

    Cons

    Daily commute, if you live far. Sometimes working across departments can be tedious or time consuming if you need to wait and coordinate for meetings to get user requirements. Priorities tend to be urgent due to the nature of the shows.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce meeting times or implement policies to reduce noise and distractions. Have departments plan and communicate their initiatives in a pro-active way. Other than that, great company to work for!

    Pros

    Great place to begins one's career.

    Cons

    Most won't have a lifelong career with the company. Senior management, is unstructured and do not present proper avenues for employee advancement. Churn is a major issue here.
