The Label Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Label: The Story of Columbia Records is a 2007 book by Gary Marmorstein, about the rise of Columbia Records. It covers how it made its way from the beginning: from signing its own artists, to making them celebrities.
The Label book is really boring and jazz information is mildly interesting, claims a user on amazon.com
"Others have already mentioned the HUGE slant of this book towards classical and Broadway recordings. The Jazz information was mildly interesting and there is NOTHING about their Nashville crew (Producer Don Law is mentioned in one sentence). So much of this book is about really boring office politics, like who when to what prep school and where so and so lived in New York...uhhhg. I have read hundreds of books on the music industry and this one is far and away the most boring I have ever read. When Barbara Streisand gets more ink than Bob Dylan, you know it's going to be a big groaner...Yawn."
Account Executive/Sales (Former Employee) says"Never received a raise in the entire time I was with the company even though sales increased from $0.00 to $475K in my division. The management lacked skills to take the company to a higher level. No Growth potential."
Former Freelancer - Anonymous Freelancer says"I worked at The Label Life for less than a year Cons: Negative work culture and office politics"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at The Label Life full-time for more than a year Cons: Poor management. Don't know what exactly to expect from employee. Hence poor leadership"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at The Label Life full-time for more than a year Cons: Low salary plus frequent delay in salary crediting No growth prospects Bottle-neck decision making Unfit leaders, who launch personal attacks and public humiliation is a favourite tool. Work intrudes on all weekends and despite repeated talks with the management to curb this habit of theirs."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at The Label Life full-time Cons: The workload can be a lot sometimes"
Former Intern - Merchandising Intern says"I worked at The Label Life for less than a year Cons: Need to organise their team better"
Former Temporary Employee - Merchandiser says"I worked at The Label Life Cons: The fact that I was a part of the merchandising team, everyone had to deal with a lot of upset vendors with delayed or no payments. Salaries are always delayed by 10-15 days. Ex employees complain that their full and final does not get processed until 3 months after they leave (without any kind of disclaimer). The team heads have a tendency of getting flaky at times."
