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.

Our team serves departments across the company by providing feedback and best practices on software asset management. We get to work with a lot of different teams which is really interesting.

What does your typical day look like?

There is no typical day at UMG, which is a good thing! I get an opportunity to work with numerous individuals within IT and the business on a variety of global projects. Having the opportunity to work with so many talented people globally and continuously learn and contribute to our business is very exciting.
