    Great mgmt team!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNew mgmt with CAO and CFO is great

    ConsWeak divisional leadership particularly deluxe digital distribution

     

    Great networking and hands on experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork with a great bunch of people in various departments.
    Learn new things about today's technology.
    When learning new tasks your fellow team members are always willing to help you with every step of the way.

    ConsDifficult to network at times in a super fast paced environment but do-able.
    The company mostly hires from the outside for higher level positions rather than train hardworking and capable workers from inside the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your team members more. When one promotes the team should move up in the ranks as well or given the option to transfer to another department when enough time has been put in their present position. Too much time in one position (especially if they want a challenge) can increase the likelihood of low productivity.

    Great people to work with, but business is shaky

    Java Programmer (Former Employee) Burbank, CA

    ProsA great work environment, plus awesome people who work there. They work hard, but play hard.

    ConsThey promised an annual bonus when hired, but then when the time came, they cancelled it because of "the economy"

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't say the bonus is guaranteed in the interview process if it truly is not

    A decent company

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Burbank, CA

    ProsThis company does generally try to keep their employees happy. Performance bonuses are a nice sweetner.

    ConsDon't see much opportunity for advancement unless you are a workaholic. They also tend to hire coordinators and temps alot instead of having fully skilled and invested workers.

    You have to make your work/ife balance on your own. Otherwise they will work you into the ground.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because a person works 12-14 hours a day doesn't mean they are management material!

    Nice corporate beast with great potential

    (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGood local management that care about staff and try to make their working life rewarding and worthwhile. Good development of staff skills and they value all kinds of input.

    ConsHQ management is very top heavy and can at times be too distant. They seem not to know (or care about?) what is going on in the different offices around the world. Little awareness of differences in office culture between the US and worldwide offices creates a divide.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart listening to your staff. Open up a dialogue - staff would appreciate more active information and communication with the top. Invest in your human resources and you will receive amazing dividends.
