    I worked at MGM Studios full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My department was pretty chill and had a mostly friendly atmosphere
    Free advance movie screenings
    It's right off Rodeo Dr.

    Cons

    I heard some people were really overworked.
    The work was very boring.
    There seemed to be little to no upward mobility
    A lot of the movies they produce are not very good and don't do very well.
    MGM has a notoriously rocky history. Although it had gotten ship-shape by the time I left, it had just gone through bankruptcy, lost its studio lot in the 70s, etc. Although that's all historical, it makes you wonder how much job security is available there.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MGM Studios (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The HR contact was very off-putting - she was borderline rude. They called all my references and forced me to give current and salary information before they would advance me in the process and then didn't follow through with an offer. Overall it was one of the most opaque and negative interview experiences I have ever had.
