Big Hit Entertainment is amazing in fans’ eyes, but what about the staff’s opinion?
Big Hit Entertainment started out as a small company but was gradually listed as a “level-up” one when it’s the cradle of BTS – the world’s most influential global hit group. With many fans of the 7-member group, Big Hit is considered a good company to give the boys the freedom to experience the music and contribute to driving the group to the top of the glory. So how is the image of the company in the eyes of employees?
The answers below can disappoint! A recent media review of the company is being circulated by several netizens. Instead of the good image the fans often see, this employee has a rather unkind look at the company they once attached to.
The staff is quite dissatisfied with Bighit Entertainment‘s listing of disasvantages such as a loose company system, frequent running times with schedules or hard work. Many ARMYs think that they are not surprised by this, and that Bighit is a small company and only bounces on the success of BTS in the past two years. There are still many disadvantages for them to overcome.
Some commented: “It is true. In smaller companies with limited staff, the job description is often unclear and there is no handover system. You learn everything by working. I think this only happens in my area, but it turns out everywhere”, ” Because Bighit is a small company, this is not surprising. They need to change their management and culture if they want to develop.”
However, there are some people who think that this review was made a year ago (in 2017), so it’s possible that Bighit Entertainment has overcome some of the shortcomings. In particular, when the contract with BTS was resigned, Bighit announced that the support team was up to 100 people, demonstrating that the company was aware of the need to improve their staffing system to help the group advance further.
Currently, Bighit Entertainment has only one boy group, BTS and some solo artists like Lee Hyun…, so everything does not need to be perfect. However, if they want to advance further and launch new groups in the future, it is important that Bighit should focus on their management, working system, etc to be able to fulfill their potential.
