    Disheartening

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStrong sense of growth from within

    Company is holding onto little remaining sense of old culture

    Somewhat low turnover

    ConsManagement clearly does not have direction or sense of believe in the company

    People in positions of power coast through their workday, while lesser employees struggle with a higher workload

    Employee appreciation decreasing yearly, with spending cuts on benefits, summer and winter picnics and parties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop bringing in outside management. Continue to bring in experienced people from within the industry.

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

    Great work environment

    Payroll Processing (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsThis was several years ago, but the staff and management were a pleasure to work with. Solid people and opportunities for growth. Work/life balance was fantastic. Even on a hectic day, the team kept things positive and always got the job done.

    ConsHonestly nothing negative to say. Team worked well together and communicated well. Pay was on the lower side, but my position was entry-level so that was totally expected.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsGood salary and benefits. Co-worker were nice.

    ConsManagement constantly changing and not for the better. They can't decide on a direction. Some of the management were incompetent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen hiring management, make sure they can do what they say they can.

    ProsCompensation, good location in Burbank, new building

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who have actually have the ability to run the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Eh

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsThe company makes money. During the economic downturn starting in 2008, Cast & Crew was expanding...a lot. A lot of people have been there a long time. It's not unusual to be working with people who have been there over ten years. They do know their business.

    ConsThey treat their employees "okay" without trying too hard--good but not too good. The benefits are great if you're single. If you have a family, the medical benefits are outrageously expensive. Upper management doesn't get technology so they get sold a bill of goods by the endless stream of CTOs that pass through, because they don't know any better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet somebody on the Board of Directors who understand tech so they can let you know when you're dealing with incompetents. Try a little harder to make employees happy. Would it really kill the bottom line to subsidize ANY AMOUNT towards health benefits for employees with families?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work for

    Senior Applications Developer (Current Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsCast & Crew is a good place to work for. They treat their employees fairly and the compensation packages are really good.

    ConsNot too many except for the fact that their senior management is to some extent resistant to changes. If you are a tech savvy person and want the thrill of emerging technology, this is not the idea place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to bring in new changes especially in the field of technology and that will definitely help the company to compete better against the competitors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I am glad I left this company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe beneftis package and being close to the Empire Center for lunch is the only good thing about working there.

    ConsSenior management resists new technology. Don't talk to your coworker, they will seperate you like you are in kindergarten which is probably why the turnover is so high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in new management with actual technical skills and experience from the real corporate world.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
