Great Place to Work but Work Life Balance is Skewed
A&R / Legal Coordinator (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – February 23, 2018
I loved my experience working at Warner Music Group. I worked out of the Nashville office and enjoyed my colleagues there although there was a period of stressful transitions where senior level and chief level employees were being fired left and right from Feb 2017 - Nov 2017. That did not sit well with me.
Having constant contact with the international offices of the corporation and the NYC and LA / Burbank offices was a plus. You truly are working in an international corporation with many moving pieces. For the most part, there was always someone there with the answers I needed.
Company culture is wonderful. I made lasting relationships with my work colleagues.
Team culture differs by department, however. Some teams are super engaging while others work in isolation. Be sure to understand what you're getting into in terms of work dynamics so you can meter your expectations.
I worked on two teams while I was there. The first was very connected and engaging. I enjoyed that work experience. The second team was never in the building and if they were they were shut in their offices with the door closed hosting back-to-back meetings. I ended up forging relationships with other teams because my team was hardly ever available to answer questions / brainstorm / connect.
Overall, I enjoyed my experiences with the company. Just be sure to have your offer(s) and benefits in writing. I was pitched one offer and in reality, this was not the case, but I only realized this once I was months into my job. They will low ball you if you let them. Don't let them.
Company culture, free and interesting company events, great people
Management is shaky at times, constant turnover in some roles, sometimes you do a little of a lot of people's jobs
