Pros

As a Freelance Artist I was able to earn a decent living working from home while I worked toward my degree. Adored my direct management team.

Cons

Billing department had poor communication with project managers. Frequently had to resubmit my invoices for payment and there many times when checks would arrive later than expected.

Advice to Management

Take better care of your team members. Better communication between management, licensing and production team so less time is wasted in second guessing, revisions and redundant ineffective emails.

    Overall a good experience, but at time extremely frustrating.

    Pros

    Jakks a family oriented company that has a lot of great people to work with. The location of the company is beautiful.

    Cons

    There was a huge communication breakdown between upper management and lower. Everything was to be completed last minute. The parking situation was awful. You had to park on the PCH which can be very unsafe.

    Advice to Management

    To think everything through completely before implementing a new process. The lack of resources also slowed down the production process as well.

    Pros

    On the beach
    For the most part, really laid-back, talented people.

    Cons

    Politics, and more politics. Senior management can make it rain or shine.

    Advice to Management

    Man up and be innovators.
