    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very stressful but love working there. I have been in and out around 10 years now. This place can be challenging but if you looking for a place where hard work is appreciated I would say this is IT. Love the co-workers and leadership always very supportive and willing to help

    Cons

    Daily stress due to tough old school clients.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting servant leadership it’s working

    I have been working at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits, interesting work, great coworkers, steps being made to be more agile

    Cons

    Ineffective leadership, managers promoted without management skills or training while on the job, new building that didn’t plan for cubes so there is no sound control or privacy

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who shouldn’t be managers. It’s mind-boggling that people continue to be put in positions with no professional preparation. Cut poor performers and people with horrible attitudes. It makes the work day less than pleasant when surrounded by individuals who complain about doing the work they are paid to do.

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

    Pros

    The company is changing for the better. They are listening to the employees and slowly but surely making improvements. The flexibility that employees have over their schedule is great and motivating.

    Cons

    It's not really a con. The company has been around for a long time so change is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue giving your employees scheduling flexibility- it shows trust and it makes us want to work harder knowing that there is flexibility. Continue wanting change and listening to employees.

      Former Employee - Payroll in Burbank, CA

      I worked at Entertainment Partners full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The people you engage with are the pros...

      Cons

      They have lost a lot of the basic sensibilities to encourage longevity and strong connections with their employees.

      Advice to Management

      Too much to even say....

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

      Pros

      None except flex hrs and ESOP and old friendships.

      Cons

      Doing it right is not the number 1 objective. Getting payroll out the door is the most important. Many coordinators do not have a clue how to handle union payroll and their work was rarely reviewed. If getting payroll correct matters to you, this is not the place for you.

      Advice to Management

      Ask coordinators (anonymously) how well they have been trained to do payroll and the results will be shocking. I still to this day receive calls from coordinators. Seems they struggle to be taught correctly.

      No opinion of CEO

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

      Pros

      Salary, benefits, ESOP, and 401k.

      Cons

      Many Depts. dysfunctional Clueless Management Many longtime workers are in cruise mode

      Advice to Management

      There's a reason why it has less than a 50% recommend and CEO approval rating, it's a horrible place to work. Yes they have a fancy new building with nice amenities, the salary and benefits are good, but you'll end up hating to come to work everyday. Read at least 25 of the company reviews and the same general theme will come across. Terrible management and poor company vision. Upper management constantly flip...
