    I worked at Entertainment Earth full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, free broken toys & soda. Occasional movie nights & trips to Comic Con in San Diego. You can decorate your desk like a child's bedroom & nobody cares.

    Cons

    I worked in the wholesale department for several years. Between senior sales supervisors who tend to hoard key accounts after sales reps leave & an ever revolving door of sales directors, it's a wonder the department hasn't fell apart entirely. The owners are nice but mostly absent, leaving incompetent management to make the day to day decisions. High turnover in the sales department due to low commissions doesn't help...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees who are dedicated & experienced as your foundation, rather than youthful beginners who learn on the job for minimal pay. If veteran reps choose to leave, find out why & try to fix the issue rather than just giving them a smile & a final paycheck on their last day.

    I have been working at Entertainment Earth full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The biggest pro - I get to talk about Star Wars and Marvel as part of my job! The environment is collaborative, and fun. The owners truly care about each aspect of the business, and it's great to get 1:1 time with them. My co-workers are cool, and I actually enjoy their company! Comic-Con is huge, and it's fun to be part of the buzz. Every day is different, yet fun. Did I mention I get to talk about Star Wars and Marvel...

    Cons

    Most work areas are bull pen style, which can be problematic for someone who prefers a quiet environment. I personally thrive in it, and love how it fosters growth and idea sharing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it fun. Keep it cool! This is a great place to work.
