    Pros

    Great office location. Employer has name recognition in the real world. Looks good on the resume. Access to product at great prices. Lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Cult-like working atmosphere. Blind worship of the CEO, calling him 'our fearless leader' (really?). Most employees who are not in upper management are overworked and are very stressed out. People develop health issues and get burned out. Certain departments in Century City are ran by incompetent and maybe bi-polar directors who emotionally abuse their employees. Screaming, belittling and treating people unprofessionally is a usual occurrence. People are afraid to speak up about the abuses, scared to lose their jobs. Below-market salaries are explained by telling the employees that the culture and the sense of family outweighs the money. Nepotism and croneyism runs the place. How do you speak up if the person who is abusive is related or is best friends with the upper management team? Most people are salary and work 6-7 days a week with no overtime pay. Promised advances or future professional growth never materializes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the double-standard of letting abuses slide for your friends and family within the company. Treat everyone with the same respect. Revamp the age demographic of the people in power in the company. The sales will go back up. Stop being hush-hush about available opportunities. More transparency in the work place would alleviate some of the concern that employees have about their future within the company.
