    I worked at Authentic Brands Group full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people at the bottom are nice

    Cons

    Everything. They only promote their family and don't give a crap about anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    "awful place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Marketing 
      Doesn't Recommend
      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Authentic Brands Group full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Some of the people are great, and that's what made leaving hard

      Cons

      Favoritism. Nepotism. Upper management is full of bullies. THE most toxic work environment. All the good people leave and all the suck ups stay. Zero communication to employees. One real HR person and she has no power.

      Advice to Management

      Caring about your employees goes a long way. If you're always saying that people are disposable they'll leave.

        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at Authentic Brands Group full-time

        Pros

        Great place to work for those starting out in a career. Coworkers were very friendly and easy to get along with.

        Cons

        Days can be slow with not much work to do.

        Pros

        You may be able to find a few genuine people.

        Cons

        This company sells you the dream of reviving brands that are going under when actually they can care less about reviving the brands. All the executives care about is buying more brands so they can brag about how much our companies portfolio is worth. It's disgusting. We continue to acquire more brands, but barely hire more people for the workload. There is absolutely NO work culture here. They don't do anything...

          I worked at Authentic Brands Group full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Highlight has to be putting in my two week's notice. (Also the only positive review is from one of the owner's relatives who posted when the company grew upset knowing what little people thought about the company they work for when posting on glassdoor. That should say enough about this place.)

          Cons

          Such a waste of time. A lot of people move up with title quickly since it's a small company but you're experience in archaic in that their marketing and business strategy is way out of touch with consumers. They are a business of dying brands. It's not sustainable. My guess is they're trying to go public just to make some money before the thing goes under ten years from now as the market doesn't have a place for this...

          Advice to Management

          Higher an external HR company to audit your company.

          I worked at Authentic Brands Group full-time

          Pros

          Opportunity to work across disciplines and industries to maximize licensor revenue

          Cons

          No hr department or process for issues. Lots of talk, no enough action with employees. President and CEO are at odds.

          Advice to Management

          Establish a healthy culture and improve communication

          Pros

          Nothing, not one single thing.

          Cons

          There truly is no place worse to work. I could write paragraphs on the horrible experiences I have had but the best way to sum it up is this: Look at the other reviews on this site for ABG and really consider what others have taken time to write. I wish I had! However if you are dishonest and lazy, this is the place for you! Apply and you will be at least a VP in a matter of months. For anyone else who is hardworking...

          Advice to Management

          I would say my advice would be to invest in and hire a proper HR team, BUT they would never do that because half of the upper management team would no longer have jobs there.
