A very unhappy place to work since new upper management arrived. Culture of distrust, and constant fear of job loss.

Executive Team Member (Former Employee) Glendale, CA

ProsIncredible Facilities Team who have been there for a very long time, and know there stuff (with the exception of the Director who is not of much help with any request - he seems to be the person who is always "in a meeting"). Starbucks on the DCP campus. Some classes offered by the Learning and Development segment free of charge if you have the time.

ConsThe upper management lacks leadership skills, and knowledge of the licensing business. Terrible morale, people quitting without having new opportunities in place. Promotions given to all the wrong people, with talent and experience rarely a key element in the decisions. Layoffs seem to be a regular occurrence with re-org after re-org... Not enough support for day to day "work" - in other words top heavy with staff who mostly sit in meetings, and try to look good for the upper management. The Human Resources department is not helpful, or particularly knowledgable. The company seems to want to make them become more "strategic business partners", without regard for the actual employees. Pay is not great, but not terrible. It is not worth it to work in an unhappy environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementNew upper management, more suited to the licensing and product development world, is the only thing that could make DCP a good place to work again. Morale is lower than necessary. Less talk and more action. No one likes hearing "One DCP" repeatedly from upper management because when it is not backed up with actions it means nothing. Create an environment where there is accountability. Rather than having an actual course on how to navigate the politics of DCP, focus on changing that part of the culture to be that of a more accountable, honest, and rewarding place to work. Innovation is more than just a word, and it cannot happen in a place where creativity cannot thrive. Look to your lower level staff and promote from within for the right reasons. It will pay off, and turn over might slow down.

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