    I have been working at Branded Entertainment Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is a leader in an exciting, dynamic shift in the media landscape. Smart, great people across the company. Fast-growing business so it never gets boring. Corporate culture allows for a lot of personal flexibility. The changes that they have been making over the past year and adding strong talent, has set the company up for success.

    Cons

    The company needs stronger financial management. It should be more profitable despite overly-aggressive growth targets. There has been a culture of complacency in some areas of the company, but hopefully the changes being put into place will raise the bar overall.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting people and expenses without consideration for damage left behind while pushing sales goals higher and higher isn't working. Need new plan for profitability.

    Pros

    Exciting place to work at the forefront of the shift in advertising and entertainment. The talent here is phenomenal and the energy is enthusiastic. After several big changes, senior leadership is very focused and has the company locked in on a very good path. A big part of this new focus has been on corporate culture and career development. I have been here for four years and not only has my role grown, but I've been given the opportunity to transition into new paths.

    Cons

    As mentioned, the company went through a major shift last year. While it was tumultuous, the company is now in an amazing place and you can feel the positive groundswell. So while this isn't a con now, it was tough at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus, and continue the investment in the employees!

    Pros

    BEN is a very positive work environment where all the employees are very friendly and outgoing. The management team is really focused on setting up new hires for success which attracted me to the role. My boss is great at outlining clear goals and expectations and I feel like I can lean on for anything. BEN has a family oriented atmosphere with lots of team building activities, lunches and office perks that are nice bonuses to the role.

    Cons

    I am pretty new to the team (less than 2 months) and so far so great, no complaints.

    Pros

    Great group of people and a fabulous work environment.
    I'm a new hire (less than two months) and have been very impressed by the friendliness and dedication of the people, the focus and insight of the new leadership team, and the huge opportunities that lie ahead for the company. It's a great time to be at BEN -- things are definitely headed in a great direction.

    Cons

    Still some transition happening with positions shifting from Seattle to LA.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay focused on the huge opportunities ahead of us, and continue to focus on building the BEN culture

    Pros

    The company has definitely gone through some growing pains in the past, however over the course of 2016, they finally made changes that prove they have a very clear vision on where the company is headed and have become organized internally to be successful on that path. They have very smart, talented individuals in every department, and the leaders of the organization are paying attention to the needs of the business as well as the employees. Pros: FUN place to work, great benefits, company is on a path to grow and succeed in the coming years, BILL GATES own the company, great company culture.

    Cons

    Wants to be a Silicon Valley startup style co- should add some more of those perks (Summer Fridays, better maternity/paternity leave)

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees, grow and promote internally, recognize loyalty and talent and reward.

    Pros

    I've worked for BEN for over 3 years and it's been an enjoyable experience. I get to work with recognizable brands and have an influencer on the company, including it's culture. My experience has been that BEN rewards those employees who work hard and contribute to the success of the organization. Very fair to work for and extremely loyal to their employees.

    Cons

    The company has undergone some changes that have negatively effected other the job status of employees. I'm sure that's why there are some negative reviews on here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great employees. New LA office. Cool business at the intersection of media, advertising and tech. Legacy imaging business has been sold. Future looks bright.

    Cons

    Not really a con if you like constant change and can adapt, but BEN operates in businesses that are constantly evolving. You need to be on your toes.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on executing. We are in the right businesses.

    Pros

    The Sales people were/are excellent, helping the IT department to create the software they need and working around the software while it was being fixed.

    Cons

    The I.T. department was left to their own devices. It sounds good to the employee until the software created does not match the customer's needs.

    Advice to Management

    Find out who the users are, find out their software needs, then find out the easiest way to meet those needs. i.e. Help the I.T. department create the software the customer needs.
