    Former Employee - Manager in Beverly Hills, CA

    I worked at MGM Studios full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was with this company through a takeover by Sony, a bankruptcy, and two relocations. We had years that were strong and years that were horrible. A truly durable brand, with dedicated employees. Great benefits, good people, and a great location.

    Cons

    Definitely not the best paying studio around. I felt like I had reached a ceiling, as promotions were very few and far between. When employees don't feel that they have something they're working towards or that they're making progress, they tend to stagnate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more career growth within the company. Listen more to mid-level managers and directors for their input, as they're the ones in the trenches.
