I have been working at Todd McFarlane Productions
Pros – TMP is the parent company of an empire built by Todd McFarlane and his wife. The office environment is very casual and employees can wear comfortable clothing all year round. Larger departments such as accounting have good opportunities for growth. The headquarters is located in Tempe in a central location in an upscale office park. Employees have access to special toys and comics that may be hard to find at retail outlets, and discounts at the retail stores.
Cons – The company under previous management has made some very bad decisions in the last few years and the owners and upper management now have an us against them mentality with the staff. The easy go lucky environment where performance is rewarded is long gone. Raises are inconsistent and the company is trimming costs as fast as possible. It is now a very stressful place to work and micromanagement is rampant, with everyone pointing fingers at everyone else.
Advice to Senior Management – The company needs some outside help to help it get back on track. Promoting from within is detrimental when the same people are shifted around to different departments and no one has an external perspective. Communication from the managers down to the staff is poor at best and needs improvement.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
