An Insider's view of Universal Music Group

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Everyone is hard working but it’s still a pretty relaxed and friendly environment. If you need any help people are always ready to make time. Between the conference room with all over music related decorations, big lunch room with table-football and arcade games and a very casual dress code, the overall vibe is really chill.
