    Pros

    Above the comp and benefits, I work for an amazing executive who recognizes the challenges of being a working parent.

    Cons

    Too much gossip and jumping to conclusions that affect the perception of people and subsequently their livelihood.

    Be honest and truthful to people, they will appreciate it so much.

    Advice to Management

    Let go and trust more. Too many levels of management. Tell the employees you value that you care about them. When you don't, they leave. Such an easy win win for all!

    Pros

    Entertainment Partners is a great place to work because of the company culture. It's a quickly growing company that still has that family-oriented feel. The company is employee owned (ESOP) so everyone has a stake in the company to help build success, which translates to more money for retirement.

    Cons

    Although the company still has that family-oriented feel, it is growing very quickly, and you may start to feel like you're just another cog in the wheel. To remain competitive and to keep market share, there have been many cost-saving decisions made at the expense of some long-standing employees' jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Although it's understood that changes need to happen to keep the company viable and successful, more transparency would be appreciated as many feel like they are walking on eggshells seeing if they will be impacted by the many changes that happen.

    Pros

    Free healthcare, good vacation, 401k and ESOP benefits. Smart coworkers to work with.

    Cons

    Expect your performance reviews to be about something they will nitpick you about that isn't true. 2% raise is expected or less. Expect to be worked to death. Not the work-life balance company that it was before. And management is all above getting the private stock share higher at all cost. Layoffs are already happening. Even hard workers who've been there for a long time have been laid off because the goal of this company is to outsource the work as much as possible. Would you want your payroll information known to foreigners???

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what you were before when the company truly cared about its employees. That is what made your company profitable.

    Pros

    Culture, open dress code, free health care and food events.

    There are some nice people.

    Cons

    The company is going through a reorg because managers have failed to do their jobs and get rid of poor workers who just go through the motions and don't want to help the company grow. Senior management can be poor as their are only for self and don't want you to get ahead of them even if you have more talents and are just as qualified.

    Too much gossip and distraction in some areas. Lack of professionalism. Too many followers
    and not enough leaders.

    Hr does not monitor poor managers. No opportunity for feedback on managers who are not good managers and do not control their departments effectively.

    The nice personable people are not in authoritative positions.

    Too many people want to have control to show they have power instead of being results-oriented and a great leader.

    Advice to Management

    There are some VPs who lead in fear and those people talk poorly to their employees. Get a handle on those VPs and don't give them too much power like you have as it's only making EP go downhill.

    Promote the hard workers and people who are really at EP to work and not to schmooze and talk all day. Look at the people who have been at EP for 10+ years and have not expressed a desire to grow or who do not do their jobs well. They are dead weight.

    Cut at the top and replace management as they are the reason for the reorg. Do not make employees suffer because of poor leadership, action, and vision.

    Think about how EP should be customer-service oriented yet managers do not know how to talk to their employees well.

    Get rid of the managers with a chip on their shoulder because they want to be CEO and get people in who are fair.
