    Overall good experience & good company - Executive Assistant

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsFantastic benefits, stability, nice coworkers, fun environment, yearly (minimal) raises.

    ConsNo bonuses. No room for growth. Many of the departments are structured with assistants and executives, so it makes it hard to move up without moving out of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure departments so that those who come in at entry level & would like to stay with the company still have opportunities to move up in rank.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible Work Atmosphere, Bad Morale

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Studio City, CA

    ProsThe people, for the most part, are great. Wages for entry-level hires is very good --on the off chance 'ET' loosens their purse strings and brings someone new in.

    ConsThere are a few bad seeds that consistently make day-to-day production a stressful mess-- More so than it ever needs to be (Particularly the old-school producers & segment directors).

    Lay-offs are common. Integral workers are often cut for "budgetary reasons" while extravagant parties in the newsroom are thrown days/weeks prior.

    Advancement is relatively easy but the promotion is in title only, never pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementArbitrary cuts of lower-pay workers has cut morale considerably. I would advise that management keep a better eye on wasteful spending (which happens all too often) rather than fire valuable, loyal employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Worst company I've ever worked for in life

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay comparable to industry standards. Not much else unless you are one of those ppl who are great at brown nosing to climb up ladder bc you can't climb up ladder by yourself on your own merit and talent, then this is the perfect environment for all ass-kissers and after work drinking buddies.

    ConsToo many to list, true what other neg reviewers said, politics, in-crowd club, nepotism. Ppl crying in bathrooms bc management ruthless/harsh/bad environment/cursing/and don't care about employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo onto others as you would want them to do on to you. Karma, karma. How do u ppl sleep at nights knowing u make other ppl miserable in hostile environment. Typical boys club mentality. Ppl work hard but if not in the nepotism in-crowd, kick them to curb and pat yourself on the back.
