    I have been working at Cast & Crew full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has been around for 30+ years. The staff is great and there are awesome employees that try to keep the 'old culture' of a family environment alive. The company is trying to move in the right direction, keeping up with technology, utilizing it and implementing it down to the employee levels.

    Cons

    Old culture is hanging on a thread - corporate is in. Upper management is extremely top heavy, applying the 'corporate' mentality of not caring for the employees. There are unqualified mid-management allowed to mistreat their staff members, but nothing is done since they were all referrals and recommendations. Communication is extremely poor. Motivation among employees and staff have never been lower. Favoritism, gossip, etc is starting to run rampant again. I would not recommend atm.

    Advice to Management

    Time to re-balance management and employees. You know who the problem managers are, take the time to listen (and care) for your employees by getting rid of them. This will increase motivation, productivity and overall eliminate many problems...dept by dept. Trust your employees and don't be scared to promote within! Communication, communication, communication...

    I worked at Cast & Crew full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are great to work with; competitive pay and decent benefits. 4/10 work schedule for large part of the workforce; beautiful offices in downtown Burbank.

    Cons

    Benefits coverage for dependents is way too expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Management should put more resources into employee engagement initiatives.

    I worked at Cast & Crew full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You want to do a 40 hr/week job and no more. Factory work (more like green visor, pencil and paper.

    Cons

    Management, just don't have a vision or can see the future and always play catch up. Continual churn at mid-level ranks provides Senior Management with the excuse of not innovating or moving forward. Entrenched, entitled and myopic are the hallmark of the Senior Leadership Team. There is no way of gauging the way management will react to anything and planning is very secret at a very high level, and not divulged to anyone that needs to execute and when something fails, others are blamed continuing the diversionary churn.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games, set your plan and execute transparently to staff so everyone can take ownership.

    Pros

    Strong sense of growth from within Company is holding onto little remaining sense of old culture Somewhat low turnover

    Cons

    Management 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 Management

    Stop bringing in outside management. Continue to bring in experienced people from within the industry.

    I have been working at Cast & Crew full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable company. Average benefits. Positioned to be number one payroll company.

    Cons

    Culture has changed from family oriented to corporate. Too much expectations from upper management to compete in time effectiveness and methodology without any regard to the human element and the work-life balance. Pay is poor. Tried of hearing that the company is in a healthy position of gaining and keeping clients while the CEO's response to low increases is, "we haven't had any layoffs, have we?"

    Advice to Management

    Spend a day working in the payroll department. Instead of growing management, spend some dollars and give better increases.

    I worked at Cast & Crew full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    Honestly 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.
