    I have been working at Entertainment One full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close proximity to the city
    Access to music I like
    Decent benefits
    Met come good people

    Cons

    Passionless management
    HR department does not exist
    All the strong staff have left or been let go
    Weak existing staff with a couple of exceptions
    Office move is a downgrade

    Advice to Management

    Let the music division go it's sad already seeing what it has become. A shadow of it's former self. There is no leadership and no positive energy amongst the staff. It's like working in a morgue. Changing locations won't change anything but waste money as usual. Not the place to be proud of working at anymore. Stop wasting time on company rhetoric, we all know it's not real.

    I worked at Entertainment One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Environment and technology are good.

    Cons

    Disengenuine HR department because HR has been dessimated and is now run by self promoting managers. The music label in PW is on the way out the door - their leadershop is nonexistant.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee; when it comes to employees the company is all talk and no do. Take a look at eOne's responses to reviews on Glassdoor. They are all canned, rubber stamped and reduntant (even the good ones!). Do you think we are stupid? Take another look at the turnover in Canada's HR department since you took over running it, how do you account for that? Take a third look at the head of Global music, he is pompus and self-serving (i.e. not part of the greater good). How is the CEO allowing all this to go on?

    Pros

    Awesome Coffee Machine & Great View

    Cons

    Top executives don't know how to run their division. No growth. Horrible reality shows. They will overwork and underpay you. I did the job of 3 people and was paid as much as a production assistant. The post pa made more than me and he sat on Facebook. Stingy on paying OT. For a company that is public ally traided, treat your employees better and pay more.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, I know the office will close within the next 5 years.

    Pros

    good work / life balance

    Cons

    The company is constantly growing but doesn't seem to be focused on growing employees internally. Senior level employees are too busy protecting their own jobs and titles to grow and develop mid level managers. If you want to advance your career you will not find opportunities here.

    Pros

    A lot of the people here are really nice. And it's a good place to start out, but wouldn't recommend staying for long.

    Cons

    No room for progression, pay is bad, and there is zero job security anymore

    Advice to Management

    Focus on current employees more instead of hiring new ones.

    Gave me an opportunity right out of school. Treated me well. Place to cut my teeth and earn some chops. Enjoyed it. Made friends I still stay in touch with.

    Cons

    No different then politics anywhere else. Nothing bad to say.

    Pros

    Friendly working environment, charity work, team building activities, laid back atmosphere, end of year bonus, long paid vacation during Christmas, 401K and stock options. Health benefits including dental and eye.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up within the company. (at least the division I'm based in) When you sit down for your review and explain you'd like more responsibility, management will give it to you minus a promotion or compensation to show for it. Not a lot of training after you get hired in or take on new responsibilities. A lot of what you do you learn along the way. Certain departments are clicky and people gossip a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Take on more of a mentoring role. Help your lower level employees achieve goals and move up withing the organization. It's disheartening to see an intern hired after you get promoted before you because of who they know in Upper Management. Set a better example.
