Do not consider employment with this company!Apr 26, 2023 - Manager in Bentonville, ARRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
NO PROS NO PROS NO PROS NO PROS
The company does not support or care about their employees. They hire experienced employees but do not believe or support their work it is SLT- Owners call no matter what. They do not provide employees with a positive work environment outside of the Corp office all other offices off site SLT does not support. MGA offers no incentives -bonuses based off performance or pay raises or opportunities for growth within the company. I would not recommend this company for employment if you are looking for a solid company to grow with and be appreciated for your knowledge and expertise. Negative environment No structure to their business No incentivesContinue reading

A Company That Has Been On A Steady Move Upward Since It's InceptionJan 27, 2023 - Management in Van Nuys, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I personally enjoyed my time at the company. Even though nepotism runs rampant, it's all being done in the name of success. I see comments about Isaac Larian and how tough he is to work for, but, in actuality, he is a true American success story. Talk about passion for what one does in life, Larian exemplifies passion. Many employees don't realize that the culture Larian came from promoted diligent hard work that would eventually create success in life and business. There were many extremely talented people working for the company and they deserve "kudos" for making MGA the success that it is. All in all...if you can understand the family aspect at MGA, you'll be successful and rewarded properly. I've said enough...most will think that this might be one of the so-called "planted" memos from Isaac's desk...but, trust me,...it's not
Employees who think that they deserve bagels on Friday....bagels are a courtesy and you can thank Makabi for that.....Continue reading

Highly recommend for creative peopleDec 17, 2022 - Designer in Los Angeles, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I have been working at MGA Entertainment for almost one year and I can honestly say that it is an amazing place to work. The leadership team is top-notch and the CEO is down-to-earth and very approachable. The culture at MGA is one of high performance and the company values its employees, which is evident in the compensation package, which is above industry standard. The level of job security at MGA is also very high, which is a major plus in today's job market. Overall, I highly recommend MGA Entertainment as a great place to work. The company truly values its employees and provides a supportive and positive work environment.
Fast pace and limited number of process

Great people. Hardworking. Very Creative. Know Your Stuff.Jan 11, 2023 - Manager in Los Angeles, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
For sure the people. All the way across the organization. Hardworking. Loyal. Fun. Super creative. Fun business. Very competitive industry. Big brands. This place has it all. Be prepared to know your stuff though.
Great place to work, but IMO, the power of decision-making is usually not in your hands. This is ok on some levels understanding there are a lot of very expensive things and it's not your money. Also, be prepared to know your business top to bottom. Not a lot of room for errors.

MGA is Worse Than EverJan 1, 2023 - Brand Manager in Chatsworth, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
a paycheck-this is the only pro.
I'm seeing lots of new fake reviews so I felt the need to speak out again. This is the most toxic, biased, work environment I have ever experienced in my 20+ years in the industry. Management is clueless and the owner only cares about HIS family and exploiting his workers. The company once again made billions and the workers get a $25 Krogers card for Thanksgiving and $50 Amazon Card for Christmas.Continue reading

High turnoverJan 17, 2023 - 3D CG ArtistRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
They do everything another company does: 401k, salary, medical, etc. Good and talented team to work with
They will have you work for 10/11 months then fire you so you can't get severance and Hire other people remotely once things start picking up again. Lots of politics, no one will get back to you.
