Suggestions for improvement

  • We had a woman in HR who was not a very good aspect of the company. I didnt get paid for about a month because she messed up my payroll. I believe she has since been let go of though.

What I like about the company

I really loved my bosses, they have become mentors to me. I was able to have fun while also doing work that i felt was important and truly made a difference. I also love that the BSO has a summer place to preform so there is a nice change of scenery half way through the year

What I dislike about the company

I would like to see the company be a bit more environmentally friendly. We used a lot of paper every single day and I felt bad about it often. More efforts could be made on that front.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think there could be better communication between certain departments specifically the higher up offices to the lower departments like the box office, they sometimes put the box office people in bad positions because they don't inform them of their decisions.

What I like about the company

The BSO is where I was hired for my first time out of college. I remember being very afraid to begin because I knew nothing about what it was like to be a working professional. MY boss took me aside and made sure to welcome me and made herself available for me to ask question and feel safe learning in the new environment

What I dislike about the company

There was a woman in HR who was not great at her job. I think my experience could have been better if she had been a better fit, she has since been let go of .

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be nice if they made more efforts to be environmentally friendly

What I like about the company

There were certain times where I would work with the talent bringing them to different locations and these are really big names we worked with. I once got to sing Roxanne with a world renowned opera singer

What I dislike about the company

There is a certain stigma about the fact that they are the Boston symphony. Everything has to do with their old image, there is little room for growth
