A former sales executive for Spotify alleges in a gender discrimination suit filed in Manhattan that the streaming music giant tolerates bias against women and gives favorable treatment to male employees—of whom some, she says, took part in “boys’ trips” with co-workers to strip clubs and film festivals.

Hong Perez, a former sales executive who began working with Spotify in 2015 and says she received positive reviews on her job performance during her tenure, said during her time with the company she became increasingly concerned about its culture with regard to how women are treated.

Perez alleges in a suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court that the boys’ club tone of the company was set by people in other leadership positions, including her boss Brian Berner, whom she says engineered her termination to make her a scapegoat for getting into “hot water” with his own superiors over a deal he brokered to obtain concert tickets.
