    I have been working at GRB Entertainment (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This Company is all about it's people. Promotions are made appropriately and many move on and get hired by the networks. GRB has a lasting reputation helping fledgling tv execs. with the experience they need to really make it in the industry. I've met some current employees who have left and come back because they like the GRB work environment.

    Cons

    near the 405 / 101 interchange which can complicate commute, loyalty is mistaken for favoritism, workplace is judgmental, tiny parking spots, coffee is too strong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making sure everyone feels included might ease some office tension.

    I worked at GRB Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    GRB is nice for people looking to gain experience in the entertainment industry.
    They have one flagship show that seems to carry the company.
    Small family style environment.
    Lots of company gatherings.

    Cons

    Because it is small a lot of your personal information can be leaked when it should not.
    Winter closure can mean your vacation time is used.
    Favoritism runs rampant, how quickly you move up and your salary is all based on who is your boss and if they appreciate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO needs to really take reigns, you do not have people with management skills working in management positions. They need a full time in house HR to really address employee concerns. I honestly see a lawsuit in their future if certain issues with management are not addressed.

    Pros

    Good company to have on resume

    Friendly employees

    Cons

    Parking was limited
    Expected to do more than my title required
    Was not easy to get reimbursed for expenses that were out of pocket, even when guaranteed I would
    Upper management was insane

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off on the red bulls, starbucks & heavy drinking and actually LISTEN to you employees & interns if you want quality within your company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sherman Oaks, CA

    I worked at GRB Entertainment

    Pros

    Health benifits are good, but a bit expensive.
    Paid holidays, quite a few per year.
    Winter break- is the best!! It's like being in school, 2 weeks off in Winter ... sometimes paid!

    Cons

    Management is lacking in training. Favorotism is very apparent. Management takes cedit for worker's job.
    Management does not communicate with employees.
    Management will openly complain about employee, but will not talk to the employee privately about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some training!! Owner needs to wake up to what is going on in his company. Perhaps a suggestion box is needed.
