    Used to Be a Great Place

    Bureaucracy at its best

    Vice President (Former Employee)

    Status Quo and the epitome of top-down management.

    Quantitative Operations Associate (Current Employee)
    Calabasas, CA

    ProsGreat benefits package, Good technology, Plenty of video training available

    Job training is on your own. Don't get me wrong,

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Very intense and very interesting

    Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
    Calabasas, CA

    ProsThe IT team is a professional and talented group of people. Very impressed with how this group works very hard to make as many deliverables as possible.

    ConsIf you require rules and structure, you will not find this a comfortable fit. You need to be able to tolerate "fuzzyness".

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt might be nice to get a handle on project finances so that contract terminations are not so unexpected.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Valuable employees go unnoticed and under-appreciated.

    Business Support II (Current Employee)
    Calabasas, CA

    ProsWork flexibility, great health and employee benefits

    ConsNo incentives, poor pay raises if any, little to no training or procedure manuals available for new job tasks. Poor comparable pay among female and males.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake better use of staff. Recognize valuable employees and give them a chance to grow. Actively listen to employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Less Learning , Less work, High bureaucracy

    Vice President; Tech Manager (Current Employee)
    Calabasas, CA

    ProsIf you are mom and want to work from home with less stress
    If you want a stable job with less money

    ConsNo learning as there is tent mentality going on between various teams who don't share knowledge or trust. Business people make decisions for technical teams and tech teams obey them as the word of law.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating IT / programming guys as an expense. Try to get some fresh talent with decent pay and form an engineering group who can come with state of the art applications which will pull a lot of business. Business and application should work together

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company to start a career with

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Calabasas, CA

    ProsHuge organization provides a lot of flexibility and benefits. Pay is very good and there is a lot to learn if you are willing
    The size of the company allows employees to have a great deal of mobility and the MyWork (work from home) program can be very useful
