    A fun company with great people and lots of culture but with limited company growth opportunities

    Pros

    The people are great. The environment is a lot of fun. There are lots of events to promote company culture (like game night on Wednesday afternoons, summer hours, and other cross learning meetings).

    Cons

    The companies future was not 100% clear while I was there. They went through large lay offs and because we were private, we were never clear how things were doing. I really hope things look brighter in their future.

    I worked at Spin Master full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    People and culture, we banded together and formed strong relationships due to the long hours and fast paced nature of the business. Benefits were good.

    Cons

    Not a structured work environment, systems and process were lacking and overall leadership was male centric where those who moved in position were less qualified but were friends in high places. No career pathing and hard work was not rewarded or acknowledged. The extra hours of the "Whatever It Takes" attitude became part of your regular hours and this were just expected as part of your job and not compensated and this became tired quickly. Comunication was lacking from Senior Management and HR turned over way too many times to count. Too many times they re-structured out the talented people. Too much gossip as part of culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key as well as acknowledging those who work hard.
    More empahsis on internal movement and career pathing.
    Improve key process infrastructure

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
