    Brown nose required, soul sold separately.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe job entails interacting with agents and entertainers from a myriad of professions within the entertainment field, some of whom you're actually familiar with.

    ConsOften, the interacting comes down to explaining basic rules and regulations and consistently correcting the opinionated disinformation from some of these same "Hollywood's finest."

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf customer service is as important as you claim, help them, and yourselves, succeed, don't treat them as if they're the most replaceable commodity you must employ.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Difficult for minorities...!

    Great Place to work, but salary is not competitive.

    Business Representative (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe benefits and working hours are fantastic. It is a relaxed work place with very nice people and the work is very fulfilling.

    ConsThe salary is not competitive in the least for new hires. It takes many years to make a reasonable wage.

    Self Important Prima Donnas Galore - Rethink working here unless you sympathize with Leona Helmsley.

    IT Department (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat name to put on the resume. "I survived working at SAG" stories over dinner with friends.

    ConsEmergencies created and fueled by emotions. Business decisions (demotions etc) decided emotionally, disrespectfully and irrationally. Although I was not myself ever demoted, I was witness to several of these "business crimes" committed. There is too much yelling on a daily basis in the IT department. Employees have been known to pack up their belongings and walk out. Numerous resignations even though they have no job lined up have been turned in. One former employee is currently going through counselling to deal with the experience of working there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure the IT dept from the top down. Stop ignoring the complaints, resignations, and arbitrary demotions and promotions of the employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsUpper management is disorganized. Poor communication between departments. Salary is a joke and not so great benefits package.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPoor leadership among management level staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
