    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People. Culture. Benefits. The future is bright as technology replaces manual work so the employees can focus on value added activities to serve our clients.

    Cons

    Silos. Lack of forward thinking and some entitled employees. Change is tough but worth it in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent, trust employees with the truth, keep moving forward despite negative feedback, our clients deserve it.

    Pros

    CEO really cares about the company and is steering it in a good direction. I established many good relationships at the company.

    Cons

    PMO lead did not recognize my value or align my strengths w/company needs. Invested 5 years and chose to leave due to this unresolved issue.

    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time

    Pros

    The core group of employees that I interact with are hard working and well intentioned. The Company is a leading in this industry.

    Cons

    The executive team seems out of touch with the core base of employees. I feel that Ivory Tower syndrome has kicked in and that they don't understand the real impact of pushing health care costs down to the employees. $250/month may not seem like a lot of money to them but it is for many. While still less than what others pay at other companies, this was one of the perks of being an employee-owner. I feel my shareholder voice is not heard.

    Advice to Management

    Try to empathize about the struggles of the common folk, who by the way are the folks working hard to improve shareholder value.

    Pros

    The company is evolving both them selves and industry. It is amazing to be part of this. There are lots of great employees across departments and events to get to know them.

    Cons

    The benefits could be more robust , like having a FSA or supplemental short term disability employees can pay for themselves. These wouldn't cost the company and would mean a lot to the employees.

    Most groups are still working in silos than together as a team.

    Parking, but that should get better soon

    Advice to Management

    The Executives needs to break the silos. They need to be the example of of One EP and how to support across teams. Continued transparency in communication of what the company is doing and how everyone role plays a part
