Vibe with Universe
Universe is a workplace with smart, driven, and fast working employees. The company was created by Adam, the CTO; Craig, the CEO; and Ben. It is a structured yet self governing workplace where employees are never tied down by unnecessary constraints. Universe is not characterized by, the so-called, “corporate culture”. Instead, all employees along with the CEO and CTO are always readily available and happy to listen to what others have to say. The dress code is extremely casual — simply t-shirt and jeans would suffice. Universe employees have at least one social a month. Some of the activities they have done in the past include water gun fights, picnics, and bubble soccer games. The workplace environment is laid back and fun, complemented with cold brew and sake on tap. Down the road, they are also thinking of implementing a playlist that all staffs can contribute to (sort of like a communal jukebox), so they can have music playing throughout the office.
From Uniiverse to Universe
The core value of Universe revolves around the sharing of ideas as well as embracing change. Sharing and exchanging of creative ideas are important to the success of the company. Particularly, employees who demonstrate integrity, accountability, open communication, as well as those who take initiative in seeking solutions to problems are ideal assets for the company. Another attribute that Universe employees all share in common is the capacity to handle and embrace changes, huge or small. In spite of being acquired by Ticketmaster, a division of Live Nation Entertainment that serves fans all around the globe, Universe prides themselves in maintaining their original start-up culture — preserving their autonomous systems of operations — even with the security and support of a Fortune 500.
There are many exclusive perks as a Universe employee. For example, employees get a pass to unlimited shows at any amphitheatre in North America — the employee and their guests get to attend shows for free. Employees also get two tickets every year that they can use on any show they like, as well as two tickets for festivals across North America!
