    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

    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.

    Pros

    EP Overpays and is very slow to take action on underperformers so you can basically hang around forever if you don't make too much.
    EP has decent health benefits that are free/cheap

    Cons

    EP is now mostly a collection of discarded employees and old systems that were rejected from other industries, organizations, and companies and have congealed together into one necrotic scab on the entertainment industry. They are sure to sell soon which will cast the industry into more disarray similar to their acquisition of the other payroll company a few years about but on a much larger scale.

    Advice to Management

    Now that you are nearing retirement it will be important to renounce this material world and move into a spiritual understanding. This work has been futile and a non-contribution to society. Cast off EP as you would a broken sandal and move into a new reality free from ego, greed, and materialism.

    Pros

    Has many talented and dedicated people. In a great location for the industry. Market leader by far acquiring competitors aggresively.

    Cons

    Quite frequent restructuring. Executives get pretty political. Knows what's out there but not willing to take the risks blocking innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Listening to the voices on the floor will build a lot healthier culture and better products. Setting the right expectation and following through will go many extra miles

    Pros

    Benefits are the only good thing at this company. Trying to find 20 words for PRO is mot an easy task when discussing this horrible place. Maybe i now reached 20

    Cons

    Not sure what is worse, working for EP or being terminated. Everyone was right, no help from Talent or Esop people regarding questions. Been over a week and no responses from EP.

    Advice to Management

    Somebody needs to change mgmt philosophy!!!!!!!
