Marketing (Former Employee), Universal CityFebruary 22, 2013
Pros: free lunches with label managers, product meetings, and free new music
Cons: 9-5pm as an intern....
FUN! It was fun being your average intern for this company. The usual paper work, social media, mail room, promotions help was required but cool. It was fun working between different departments and staff helping with anything regarding music, marketing, and or mailings. I wish this company tried hard to keep in contact with former interns and also – more... networking between staff and students to become potential employees – less

Financial Accountant (Current Employee), Sandton, GPJuly 17, 2013
Pros: we have a social lunch at work every fridays.
Because I am in Finance, almost everyday is different. There is always a deadline or a crisis that needs to be resolved. I am always working under pressure which I enjoy.

I have learned how to to prioritise my work more efficienlty and ensure that the work is done in a systematic and methodical manner. Becasue I work in an industry which such diverse – more... cultures, I have learned how to handle conflict situations

My co workers, we understand each other and work very well as a team.We are always assisting each other when needed.

The hardest part of my job is usualy at month end. We report Overseas, and all reporting must be done in 4 days. Usally durring this time we have lots of network problems, only becasue the whole world is accesing the same reporting site. There is alot of long hours to ensure that reportings are submitted on time.

The most enjoyable time is usally after month end, when reporting are submitted and there are no issues. Then we have a couple of days to calm down and start the process again – less

Auxiliar administrativo (Former Employee), Rio de Janeiro, RJSeptember 15, 2013
Pros: tudo perfeito
Cons: nada contra
Fiquei pouco tempo na empresa mas fui muito bem recebida por todos. Fui exercer a função de digitadora e arquivista.
O dificil no inicio foi familiarizar com o sistema interno da empresa pois tinha alguns comandos, nada que fosse um bicho de 7 cabeças e nao conseguisse aprender e a desenvolver mto bem. Enfim, otimo local de trabalho !

Boa parte das funções permite amplo acesso a profissionais do exterior. Plano de carreira é algo que pode – more... deixar a desejar em algumas áreas. – less
