Former Employee - Executive Assistant in Los Angeles, CA
Approves of CEO

Pros

Creativity, top talent, great environment on the lot. Status and personal satisfaction of being in the industry many would fight tooth and nail to enter.

Cons

Pidgeon-holed. "You can't possibly have an idea to share with 'abc', you're an assistant in 'xyz' department."

Advice to Management

Be open to ideas.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of fun, great shopping, previews of great movies, star gazing (if you are into that)

    Cons

    Very much still a good ol' boys club mentality, I would hear male managers talking very nastily to female VP's and Managers constantly, very belittling. Ideas proposed by female staff members were vetted by make employees before being approved. My first week, I was told I would get used to it ofr leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get over it, yes you have females in positions now, but start treating them like they have brains, and are as talented as you are, get the old boys club out of there, and bring in new blood.
