    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at P2S Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)


    You are constantly growing, learning, and advancing at P2S if you commit, communicate and are passionate about the work. I’ve been approached and investigated over 15 firms in California, and P2S is by far the best. Other pros include flexible work hours, commitment to sustainability (LEED Platinum Office), and access to senior management.


    Could improve studio leader functionality, advancing from production/PM to management can be tough if your manager doesn’t want to split the group.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to improve, and maybe make the leadership growth process more transparent and accessible.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at P2S Inc. in March 2018.


    After about 3 days, I got an email from the recruiter to setup a phone interview with the department director. Overall, it was a standard interview with questions about my resume. The director did most of the talking and seemed very rushed. Still waiting on an update from the recruiter.
