I have been working at MGM Studios full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great benefits and friendly work environment on the lower floors. Exciting to be part of a historic studio and the location is fantastic. Oscars on display on the executive level and stills from classic films line the walls. Candy everywhere. In-house showings of new films.

Cons

There's not always a clear path laid out for career advancement. The different floors might as well be different companies - we don't mix much outside of our departments. The executive level seems forbidding - there are no microwaves in their kitchens. This used to be a party place, however new management doesn't allow alcohol. No proper company Christmas party.

    I worked at MGM Studios full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    These people were like family. Everyone seemed to work to live; not the other way around. Teamwork was key and everyone did their part to help out if necessary. Not really that much bureaucracy you might see at larger studios and they give credit when credit is due.

    Cons

    The bankruptcy left the studio with some bad morale. Too many good people had to jump ship and the new MGM will have a long crawl out of the hole. To the ones who stayed I know it will be great again. Benefits were great. Compensation not so much... but when you have a fiscal freeze that will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. A lot of hard decisions have been made and will have to be made again. Just stick together and keep the talented ones on as long as possible.
