Communication
During a very trying time, emphasis was on over communicating. Team is working remotely due to Covid-19 and we are still very much a team. Collaborating, sharing and coming together virtually multiple times a week. Music is a fun environment, we all work hard, support each other and celebrate our successes. Management is always open to new ideas or to assist with challenges.

Self efficient to pick up the work without job training.
It was a fast pace working environment. As an Accounting/Finance manger, I was working efficiently by picking up the work quickly without any job training.

Could use better human resources assistance and opportunities for employees to move within the company
The HR team is not helpful for those who want to move internally. There is inequity in many aspects of this place. Could use additional oversight from high ups within the company.

Pay People More - Or Give More Flexibility
Review summary summary kind of says it all. It's simple - raise wages. It's New York City, 2020 - not 1998. If that is not feasible - go through with remote working plan.

Toxic Environment
Beware of toxic work environment. No growth opportunities, zero work flexibility. Weak accounting processes and lack of management accountability. * Upper Management is extremely difficult to work with.

Terrible Leadership!
Everything is always grey, lack of leadership and direction. Management does not care to hear what you have to say, ever and if you speak up you are black balled and eventually asked to leave.

Best college job
College influencer for the Warner Music U Program. Hosted events and created unique, personalized content on Instagram to promote up-and-coming artists on the Warner Music label. In January 2019, I handed out flowers on campus to promote a new album by the artist Gnash. The event caught tons of buzz on campus and sent over 2000 students to visit Gnash’s Instagram profile and check out his album. In this position, I learned how to use resources and creativity to capture attention – a very important aspect of marketing.

Good starter job
Warner is a really good place to start your career, you can learn a lot and you have a lot of freedom outside of work. The comp could be better for employees.

Great Company
Worked with two different teams and have stayed friends with both. Great mentorship and opportunities for inclusion. Very relaxed culture while still maintaining the structure of a large company.

Enjoyable work with great perks but horrible culture
As a contractor at WMN, I can only speak to the work culture and not the actual benefits/salary or policy of WMG. While the work is relatively easy and the perks are great, the culture leaves a lot to be desired. Supported employees tend to have an entitled attitude with no appreciation of the support staff's time or protocols. No concern for policy or security is shown, with all displaying an attitude that they have a reason that they should be above the policies in place. Established timelines for procedures and implemented directives for workflow management are completely ignored with users calling and emailing directly and expecting immediate service, with no regard to support staff workload. When added to HR's propagation of political ideology in a work environment, this tends to create a taxing environment that far outweighs any benefits or perks to working at this company.
Pros
free swag and alchohol
Cons
political ideology

Productive Workplace With Emphasis on Corporate Culture.
Although the pace was fast and the volume of work arguably inexhaustible, WMG ensured that it's employees were happy and working effectively for its clients. Typical day to day included tracking products and projects across the entirety of Atlantic's Roster of artists as well administering publishing and licensing for mechanicals dealing directly with artists and/or artist representation.

Everything is up in the air now....
Well I am looking because the contract we were under for years is ending. The folks in the labels are fantastic, great people, great parties. I hope to be in touch with them for years.
Pros
It has some benefits rarely seen in other companies.
Cons
If you're not a WMG employee, there is no security there.

Terrible work life balance
Decisions made by Executive Management on software, etc without input from Middle Management.

When issues arise due to lack of middle management input, guess what? Middle management replaced.
Pros
free meals during peak times
Cons
Terrible work life balance

Intern
Great experience with helpful and kind managers, the only downside would be no pay but you get to work for a huge company and learn the in's and out's of any department you're interested in.

Exciting Place to Work
Warner Music Group was the absolute best job I've ever had. It was fun, I got to meet a ton of artists, and worked for some big name people. Music has always been my passion - the commute was the downfall.
Pros
Meeting Artists
Cons
Commute

Hire only within
Its almost impossible to get a job here without connections. I was told its illegal for them not to post open positions but mine was never posted and I never had an interview. HR is not on your side here.

Nashville COE Office -- Good Idea, Poor Execution
Everyday feels like a fire drill where you are left without the available resources, management, compensation or support to complete what is expected of you, on top of at least one employee quitting a month.

The office here in Nashville was opened out of a cost saving initiative, without the full research being done by the company's executives as to what the real cost of living is in this city for their entry-level employee's compensations. They provide plenty of free alcohol, but don't pay enough to pay the bills. The Nashville COE upper management is continually leaving and changing due to everyone realizing that this company is still a cluster.

Extremely fast pace project execution
Multiple meetings with action items in a typical day. Learned how to manage through communication. Driving project execution through interfacing with multiple disciplines within the organization. Multiple action items required concurrently.
