Pros

Prestige of the company, vacation time, pay.

Place is a fortress. People aren't very friendly or willing to help or guide you in your career.

    Pros

    Great benefits. GREAT benefits. As someone who has worked in digital for a long time, I can say my insurance and perks easily trump anything I've had anywhere else. Pay is also competitive, though I hear from others it's not for their roles. Big company with name recognition is always nice and I usually leave on time.

    Cons

    My business unit is often chaotic. I have no clear growth path. There are some astoundingly bad employees on the payroll that have been tolerated for years despite obvious unsatisfactory performance. I question if senior management of my department has any clue as to how systematic the problems are.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on day to day operations. Hold all employees to a high standard. Engage with your product and commit to improving performance for the sake of both pleasing your clients and retaining your best employees.

    Pros

    As studios go, Universal is a nice studio. Beyond that, I really can't add a whole lot more.

    Cons

    Serious lack of competent management and much of it at the very senior levels.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the employees at the non-management level and find out what's really going on with some of the senior management. There are good ideas to be found there. This has to be above the SVP or EVP level though as that is where a great deal of the problems are.
