Place to learn a lot

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Culver City, CA

ProsYou have the opportunity to learn so much, no matter what dept you work in.
Growth in the company is easy
Travel is paid for and your budget for trips is really nice
Company picnics, food trunks, sports team, happy hour...I can go on

ConsHR is crap most of the time in the westcoast office at least
The constant layoffs make things very uncomfortable
Raises are like unicorns, you will never see one (WestCoast)
Upper management make changes without out truly considering the consequences of the work culture, employees, and potential clientele. Results were a few clients left have been lost. One even walked out after coming into the office for only an hour or so.
