Pros

Worked here for nearly a year. Never once had a problem. Got work from remote boss, but had his boss in my office. Both were great to work with, gave great advice on projects, never took their own problems out on employees like most managers I've worked under. I simply got the work, always had someone patient to turn to with questions, and got plenty of positive reinforcement when things went well.

Cons

Work was a little boring at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up what you're doing.

    Pros

    - A very few people in the company are down-to-earth and will be willing to help to get the job done.

    - Nice location at the heart of Beverly Hills. Plenty of places nearby to eat during your lunch.

    Cons

    Cons -

    - Some people in the company are not team players, have their own agenda, and have the tendency to brown nose other people's work in order to hold onto their jobs and gain favor from the boss.

    - There is a communication barrier between each department which only complicates things and eventually confuses everyone, which results in, 1. not getting the job done, 2. delayed tasks for several weeks or 3. the person responsible of such task getting the heat despite all the confusion from other co-workers.

    - Forget being paid overtime for staying longer at work to finish your tasks; the only bonuses you will get is BONUS work and stress. Such thing does not exist in the company's vocabulary.

    - Be prepared to work beyond your job description. You will be doing things you don't normally handle or have no prior experience on. You learn on-the-job with no formal training, you are on your own.

    - No benefits at all. Doesn't matter whether you work 50 hours a week or have been in the company for a long time.

    - You will be under surveillance at all times. Your computers, keystrokes, phone calls, clock-ins / clock-outs, lunch time, bathroom visits, breaks, activities are heavily monitored and documented.

    - The owner should not be micromanaging everyone and their tasks. It only makes everything confusing for everyone. That's why there are managers or directors for a reason, if not for their titles then what are they.

    - The parking is ridiculous. The spots are extremely limited and the ones entitled to have one are only the important employees according to the boss and management apparently. Otherwise, the side street is your friend.

    - There is no organized process or development role map of how things should be, even a step-by-step solution. Your work often gets out of the loop simply because there are too many hands in the cookie jar. It's unbelievable.

    - Bear in mind that you are indispensable anytime. 7 days, 7 months, a year... it doesn't matter. Once your job is done or once they think your job is done, you are gone. Make no mistakes or swallow the consequences.

    - There is no personal growth and career development. The things you learn will only be applicable within the company, not outside.

    - The pay is not competitive either. Ask for a raise and you will get a raised eyebrow.

    Advice: Save yourself from the stress, it's not worth it. The workplace environment is full of negative vibes and your cons clearly outweigh your pros. Apply here only as your last resort. If you have other options, take them.
