    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Burbank, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA

    Pros

    Depending on your group and your boss, the environment can be fun and supportive. Pay is decent, benefits, sick and vacation time are good.

    Cons

    Land grabbing, a growing political environment and favoritism emanates from the walls in the creative groups. Changes happen all the time, but some decisions are indescribably ignorant. New Senior Management of the Studio was a poor decision. One of the leaders has no place having that position. Trickle down affect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and engage in dialogue with your staff, instead of opting for arguments. Management has so much on their plate, they forget conversations, they get impatient and grumpy.

    Pros

    Great Perks and the envy of friends who know that you work around the most famous people in the world.

    It is, on average, 12°F hotter in Burbank than it is in Los Angeles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you don't forgot about the little guys and make the orientation process standardized within departments.

    Overall, a great group of people to work with -- in all departments. Most are very intelligent & hard workers, plus like to have fun.
    Good benefits & perks, including gym & bank on studio lot.

    Long hours for most people.
    Hard toget things done with so much bureaucracy & politics.
    Little to no recognition of accomplishment on large projects or important deadline-driven projects.

    A decent place to work, if you get into the right area

    Current Employee - Manager, Finance in Burbank, CA

    Pros

    Work and life balance, though this can vary widely depending on department. Benefits are good, health insurance is cheap, and vision care is excellent. It can be a very fun place to work, as projects come through at a steady pace, keeping one involved in their daily work.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic thinking, and a culture of mediocrity. Morale is quite low. It is very very important to be plugged into the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to resource allocation - don't shrink growing business units.

    Former Employee - Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    Wonderful perks like discount DVD products, employee screening and good compensation package (esp. Pension).
    A fast-paced environment where you learn many valuable skills.
    Great team work and rapport.

    Cons

    It was stressful at times to deal with the demanding requests from the U.S. Headquarters office. (I worked at the Canadian Division)
    There isn't much work life balance as management.
