    Pros

    Management is constantly looking to improve the work culture by listening and acting on employee feedback. They have made tremendous strides the last two years addressing past issues.

    Super excited about EP's trajectory and the future of the entertainment industry.

    Being part of an employee owned company really is really empowering. All employees are encouraged to act as owners and be proactive and client focused.

    Building is new with lots of energy and great hip vibe

    Co-workers are trustworthy, caring, engaged and overall great human beings with huge hearts.

    Cons

    I wish they would do 401K matching, but the generous ESOP Contributions are a great alternative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees and act with urgency.
    Continue to prune the organization for low performers.
    Set aside specific dollars for employee for training and development

    Pros

    The executive team and middle management really strive to make EP a great company and make a concerted effort to make employees feel cared for. The company is dynamic and has great amenities, and as a 100% Employee Owned ESOP provides great retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Health insurance options are limited. Some instances where middle management seem ill-equipped for their job responsibilities, but overall the company is changing for the better and doing the what they can to address and/or elevate poor performers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on striving for greatness. Make sure executives and management discuss the facts with their employees before jumping to conclusions. Continue to have high expectations, but be understanding when some situations are out of your employee's control.

    Pros

    Only if you are well connected

    Cons

    Nobody works in Facilities, Nothing gets done but if someone takes an initiative to complete a task, all the rats come out to get the credit not to work but stand aside with thumbs under their armpits to offer how you should do the work

    Advice to Management

    EP is a rat ship, a sea bound ship full of snitches.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, a competitive salary, good benefits and good people. It’s a great place to work if you have a good manager and like what you do.

    Cons

    Too many Directors and VPs. Although efforts are being made to better automate processes, a lot of the work is still very manual and paper-based. Implementing changes to years-old processes is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time

    Pros

    Good location if you live in the Valley and nice new office environment. Co-workers are the best and everyone is nice to each other. Being in one location helps getting work done. The potential of the company makes me stay for the time being.

    Cons

    Still not enough parking because we hire too many unnecessary people, especially in upper management. Lack of efficiencies. Little growth for upper management positions unless you are liked by the executives. Seen lots of females leave in management over the past couple of years. CEO and execs still are out of touch with us. Promotions are based on who you know and if they are afraid someone is going to leave. PPO costs are still stupid.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and execs still are out of touch with us. Stop getting defensive, being silent or making excuses for the culture you created. Lots of distrust and fear of being honest on the record.
