Music Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Music is an art form, and cultural activity, whose medium is sound. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound).
Hayden Adams wrote an article for The Observer with the title, Todays Music is Terrible and it contained the following:
Music is terrible nowadays. The music industry has been saturated with artists who pander to the masses with stupid “songs” with little-to-no substance. I miss the days when most artists could play an instrument, write and compose their own songs and sing it.
And don’t even get me started on today’s versions of “country” and hip-hop. Today’s “country,” or “stadium country” as some call it (see Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts), only helps feed into the stereotypes people have of southern culture, with the constant rotation of tropes such as cold beer, pickup trucks and blue jeans and the incessant nostalgic reflection on what was and could have been.
Former Employee - Specialist says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Literally everything . Toxic toxic people."
says"I worked at Broadcast Music Cons: Before I came to BMI, I worked in healthcare IT. I thought the music business would be a nice change. After experiencing the climate and IT management at BMI, I decided to go back to healthcare, but I had a hard time finding a new job at that point. When I interviewed, having music industry experience was seen as a negative, and working for the IT management at BMI, who largely came from healthcare - with a terrible track record there, made things difficult for me. My advice would be to consider a possible career move to BMI carefully, especially if you are ever interested in working in healthcare later. I figured it out, but it wasn’t easy, and I never experienced this kind of issue prior to working at BMI."
Former Employee - Part Time Sales Associate says"I worked at Broadcast Music part-time for less than a year Cons: Most are not to be trusted because the culture is Dog Eat Dog. People do not want to lose their jobs so they bald face lie and cover their own butts. Very High Stress over selling Licenses to protect Songwriters. Not sure who gets paid but the highest ups. Vice Presidents attitudes toward employees is sad and hateful. Directors take your ideas and make them their own with no credit to the workers."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Broadcast Music full-time Cons: Management's hands are tied with unrealistic expectations from supervisors."
Former Employee - Date Entry Clerk says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than a year Cons: The dregs of society work here -- real low lives. They exploit cheap labor from the worst neighborhoods in the outer boroughs. Gutter trash managers. The pay is so low you cannot pay your rent by working here. Minimum wage salaries. Cut throat. Biggest perk when I interviewed was that you get free hot chocolate. I am not kidding. They talk to you and treat you like a gullible child to be exploited while upper management salaries are well over 1 million dollars a year. Yes they rob their employees so the fat cats can get fatter."
Former Employee - IT Professional says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than a year Cons: Toxic, IT management manages by fear, no regard for people or what is to be delivered, only the process, regardless if you are delivering quality or not. No room for growth or innovation."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Poor management treat employees like the are second class, they target pension people make them miserable until they either quit or they fire them"
Former Employee - Coordinator says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than 8 years Cons: - Employees are not celebrated or promoted. You are a cog in a machine or a hamster in a wheel, nothing else. - Innovation is not encouraged or recognized. If you are a game changer you will not be elevated, you will be cut down. - Compensation is incredibly insulting with raises so low they verge on non existent. -.From the top down, a toxic company culture that reeks of self serving."
Former Employee - Data Analyst/Developer says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than a year Cons: - Management is not willing to tackle those problems. Or will pretend to, nothing will actually happen, and they'll blame their employees for their own failure. - Culture is a joke; they claim inclusivity, yet management is clearly a white boy's club. - If you work in IT, it's likely your boss may think that they can treat you however they want, if they pay you enough. And if it's not enough, then it's your fault you took the job. - Managers will look for scapegoats to take the fall for their mistakes, rather than take responsibility themselves. - No attempt will be made to understand you or your skill set. You are a cog in a machine, and you will do what you are told. - Your opinion will not be heard. Your managers already know what they want, despite not understanding the technology, and you need to go make it happen."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Broadcast Music full-time for more than 10 years Cons: They stopped the employee pension in 2009 (I believe), HR is incompetent,"
