    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.

    I have been working at Entertainment Earth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great company! Plenty of parking, fun social days like Hawaiian Shirt Day and Pajama Day, free fruit (good bananas, not just bs fruit that no one eats), competitive pay, product discount, laundry service(yes, someone will wash your dirty laundry and return it to you in a small cube), amazing people in every department, a lot of donuts, lounge with video games, darts, and a foosball table. It varies by department...

    Cons

    Every company has some, there is no holy grail of a job: communication and indecisiveness are the 2 main issues that stick out. Sometimes people don't really know what they want or they change their minds, this happens everywhere. The communication issues are easily solved by speaking up, asking questions, and triple checking your work.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of finger pointing and blaming from everyone when something is wrong; continue to try and create an environment where making mistakes is ok and no one is blamed but instead people aren't afraid to take responsibility for their actions so they can learn and be better in the future.

    I have been working at Entertainment Earth full-time

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you love pop culture, toys/collectibles, and a fun work environment. There are great benefits and perks, such as company-wide movie outings and an employee discount on the products. Management is friendly and approachable, and often very involved in even minor projects.

    Cons

    I think it is department-specific, but I do not see many opportunities for upward growth. I want to hone my skills in my field, but I find myself working on many side-projects that distract from my personal goals.

    Advice to Management

    Due to competing opinions amongst management, I often find myself redoing the same projects over and over again. Better communication within the management would greatly improve the work culture.

    Great employee perks, great management, fun environment, understanding and helpful employees/management.

    I worked at Entertainment Earth full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    From my years of experience, here are the pros I see in EE: - they don't just focus on what's going on now, they have goals they constantly work towards for the next 5 to 10 years. - work environment is great. Have built some long lasting friends from working here. There's a balance between having fun while working and when its time to focus to get things done. - management is approachable (even the owners). You can...

    Cons

    Like anywhere you work, there are great things but there are also the bad: - with growing pains, the company was restructuring, personnel changes happened often. - Sometimes management may appear to praise one department a lot more than others (but honestly they appreciate everyone's work) - sometimes staff may be stretched thin when not hiring more staff to help with tasks but in the end it works out. Help would...

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. The employee perks are on par if not better than most large companies I have worked for - including free (company paid) laundry service, fruit, soda, gym memberships, team building events and more. There is a great focus on work/life balance and making sure everyone is as productive as possible and always looking for areas and ways to improve. From a leadership perspective, I have been...

    Cons

    None really that I can think of. The company is experiencing major growth each year, so there are naturally some growing pains, but the management team is very aware and working proactively to address.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think strategically while balancing the day to day. Setting short and long terms goals and outlining how each individual throughout the company ties to the goals and the vision will help us achieve continued success.

    I have been working at Entertainment Earth

    Pros

    Culture is first and foremost at Entertainment Earth, which could be the reason why they’ve become one of the leading toy distributors in the nation. Establishing a “have fun, be fun, be cool” environment where you’re surrounded by toys all day long, is no easy task. Senior Management leaders express and encourage the fun and cool attitudes from their employees as they walk through the floors daily. Our CEO and President,...

    I have been working at Entertainment Earth

    Pros

    Recruiter was well educated about the position, asked appropriate questions that were specific to the role as well as my experience. I did not wait weeks for follow-up correspondence and my second interview was schedule almost immediately.

    Cons

    Nothing noted at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire effective, capable and enthusiastic staff. They will help your business grow.

    I worked at Entertainment Earth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They treat their employees very well. There are benefits at every end of the table. For the short period of time that I worked there, half the company got promoted, and new employees were added (not replaced) on a weekly basis.

    Cons

    Simi Valley is kind of in the middle of no where, I had to commute about 3 hours a day to work. I'm from the other Valley, San Gabriel Valley. The drive was the main reason I left.

    Advice to Management

    There are some people who work their that a lot of people think shouldn't be, but they stick around for a long time.

    I worked at Entertainment Earth full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Entertainment Earth was a awesome place to work. My co-workers were all great people and good friends. I enjoyed going into work everyday. The owners, Aaron and Jason, are passionate about the toy industry and you can see that in the way they run the company. It is definitely a work hard, play hard environment but if you care about the work and making good stuff than you will fit right in.

    Cons

    Near the end of my time with Entertainment Earth I was having trouble seeing my direction for upward growth. The projects I was working on were fulfilling and exciting but I wasn't seeing a clear, long-term path for what I could do next to advance my specific skill sets.

    Advice to Management

    Those company-wide movie outings were highlight events for me. I highly recommend more of them.
