Pros

History, City Pride, great lower level staff, many opportunities to learn, Employees care about their jobs, the building, thier coworkers.

Cons

Management turns a blind eye to lower level employees. they are happy to promote you without proper compensation. they take thier employees for granted. the pay gap is very large. they seriously underpay the housekeeping staff hired through Allied. The 5 top paid people make between $90,000 and $250,000 with their bonus. Housekeeping makes just over minimum wage. Worker's with extreme longevity and a knowledge base that is not replicable are paid very little for thier time and are questioned about thier job performance constantly

Advice to Management

Wake up and look at all levels of your employees, show them you care instead of just putting in the minimum effort. most of this staff loves the Fox and what they do there, they would be happy to show you and talk to you about it if you would simply go speak to them. Sometimes the direct manager is not the best person to talk to about thier job satisfaction, the "HR" manager has too many other jobs, is dismissive, and is good friends with the other managers. the GM is inaccessable and says he cares while doing nothing. the assistant gm refuses to acknowledge the problem.

    I have been working at The Fox Theatre - Atlanta part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not difficult work, decent pay. Management treats employees well and is flexible with hours. Friendly co-workers. Free shows too.

    Cons

    Really not bad, just kind of boring work. Not somewhere you want to stay for a long time. But if you're looking for a part time job while you're in school or something, it's perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Employees are treated well, and get decent pay. Maybe give more opportunities for advancement/promotion if you want people to stick around for longer.

    I worked at The Fox Theatre - Atlanta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff of the Fox Theatre are as awesome as the building itself. The staff here are the best in the business. It's an honor to walk these halls.

    Cons

    The executives are highly unaware of the pressures they put on everyone beneath them. They put more and more on the staff until they can't handle anymore and quit or get fired. This is a reoccurring trend going back years. Just put more and more on them without additional compensation until they leave or they crack and get fired. The executives would sooner throw his staff under the bus to a promoter than defend their incredible work. And forget adding additional staff to help with the workload. The company culture which used to win awards is dead. There is no room for advancement. There is no joy in working here anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding and dictating from your desk. Get on the floor with us. Get into our meetings. Get to know what we do and how hard we work. Reward loyalty and hard work. We deserve better. Or else, you're going to continue to lose great people.
