Could be the perfect workplace, if only the management rewarded the work and not political maneuvering and glad-handing.

Project Designer (Former Employee) El Segundo, CA

ProsHighly creative environment. Great people. Competitive salary. Working on big entertainment properties. TOYS!

ConsMiddle management flooded with low-talent, politically-oriented yes-men who never hesitate to throw their highly-skilled, hard-working minions under the bus to keep them down and make themselves look good.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your best creators and innovators and promote them. Middle management doesn't benefit from smiling politicians. It needs passionate, gritty ass-kickers.
