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

    Pros

    EP's leadership, from executives to middle management, has excelled during this pandemic. They have taken every step possible to mitigate the impact on their employees. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of such a great company! I look forward to the future, knowing we have strong leadership guiding the boat.

    Cons

    No cons... just a suggestion. Make happy hour virtual!! The people need a happy hour. : )

    I worked at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They're a big company so they have lots of clients.

    Cons

    Owned by an investment firm that makes their decisions. Used to be a good company, now driven by greed. Say they're 'family' but don't live up to that. Will likely be shut down for a very long time & not return as strong as before because of COVID. No guaranteed future unless you're IT or residuals. Big layoffs two separate times in less than 2 years.

    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing good to say here.

    Cons

    After getting acquired, they laid off half of my team. They say they are very "employee focused" but that could not be further from the truth. They said they wanted to keep our team together, and lied to our faces. They are going to take the product we worked so hard on and drive it into the ground of offshore workers. My disappointment cannot be understated.

    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Moving to an execution culture, most of the "old" time employees are finally gone with their outdated thinking, being run now as a business, great new owners - TPG!

    Cons

    Still need to move the execution culture forward, everyone needs to take care of our valued customers, still some legacy technology issues but big changes continue everyday.

    Pros

    Cons

    Management is reprehensible. Lots of meetings about nothing. Lots of talk about caring about the employees, but no action. What a horrible place to work!

    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    None. No longer the old EP.

    Cons

    After the sale of the company to TPG and the massive layoffs of hard working talented employees, what you have left are a bunch of employees that have no knowledge of the business. Current CEO and Management have no idea how to run their department not to mention they are all hypocrites. HR department is totally useless, they all seems to have received degrees from a Cracker Jack box. They ALL need to RETAKE harassment classes, complaints about unacceptable behaviors go to deaf ears. Horrible company!!

    I worked at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No PROs at this time. Used to be a company that cared about their employees; certain executives who make the big paradigm shift decisions do not have a clue of what they are doing. They have little purview of the business granularity that they are making big decisions for. Cheryl Nex is uneducated and inept. Mark Goldstein is ineffectual as a company leader. Perhaps the new investment company that bought EP will soon realize what bufoons are at the helm and do yet another very much needed house cleaning.

    Cons

    Cronyism at its worst. Incapable leaders who listen to ignorant, illiterate Director level people who will say anything to protect their jobs.
