    I worked at FameBit full-time

    Pros

    Great location with tons of shopping and food in walking distance

    Cons

    This was one of the most toxic environments I have ever worked in. Management is paranoid and continually asks if you really want to be there. They promote employees that are just 'yes' people rather than who is most qualified. If you try to give constructive criticism or point out problems you will be labeled as Negative and will be fired without any previous warnings. There is blatant sexism and inappropriate comments...

    Advice to Management

    Treat all your employees equal, not just the ones who go out drinking with you. Stop being paranoid and learn to trust the people you've hired. Be aware and stop the sexism in the office or else it very well could lead to a lawsuit.

    I worked at FameBit

    Pros

    Close to good shops and restaurants in Santa Monica

    Cons

    This is the worst work environment I've ever experienced. The other reviews on here are absolutely true - blatant sexism and favoritism, promotions are based solely on relationships and how well liked you are by certain people, no leadership, very limited growth opportunities. The management of this company is absolutely incompetent. They play favorites and only care about a few select people in their "inner circle"....

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at FameBit full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Free snacks and water. You can bring your dog to work.

    Cons

    It is expected that you go out drinking after hours with the whole team to be considered a team player. Very fraternity/sorority like environment. Lots of peer pressure to fit in or you get frown upon. The environment was created upon the trust of individuals that developed a personal relationship with management. There is no way to work up this company once you come in. Most of the team lack a leadership. Job is...

    Advice to Management

    Recommend to hire more credible employees for management roles. Most of the lower employees have higher degrees with more experience than management.
