An Amazing Collaborative Place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Glendale, CA

ProsLeader in innovation, best and brightest group of people. Senior management legendary in achievements. Plenty of latitude given to be creative. Fast paced.

ConsLong hours, impossible schedules but ultimately gratifying. Truly a challenge so if you are looking for a place to relax and ponder, this is not the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementBack office needs to be in better lockstep with operations and project management. Overall it works, but only with effort.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
