"I worked at Gracenote for about four months. I had great experience because my supervisor and co-workers are great! They are willing to share their knowledge and provided me the opportunity to learn. I've been assigned the right amount of assignments and responsibilities. Definitely a great workplace. Will like to get back if given a chance. Talk about things other than work itself: the office location is perfect. Good commute, great view. Start-up like atmosphere, energetic employees."

"I worked for Sony Music Entertainment for 5 1/2 years and really enjoyed my experience at the company. There was always room for continuous group and opportunities. I learned a lot from the company, my supervisors, co-workers and the talent I worked with throughout my years there.

"I've worked for Gracenote for 3 years, the challenges come and go and sometimes there are great lengths of time where I don't feel as challenged as I could. Overall the management is good, and co-workers are great. Have had opportunities to work with some very smart and talented people as well as advance myself professionally."

"This is the best company to work for on the East coast. The management's regional expertise gives them more say over the business than most subsidiaries get. It has the best perks and rewards for exceptional workers. The music industry has many opportunities for innovative business professionals. Sony BMG is a big company with a small-business feel."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
