    I worked at Main Event Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is the worst job I have held in my many year career. The people in HR are divided and backstab each other. They are fake and plastic and I would never recommend this workplace to anyone.

    Cons

    This is the most divisive team I have ever worked on. The people are toxic and so afraid to get into trouble nothing gets done. The old cHRO needed to go which was a welcome change by so many. Others that she brought need to follow her to her next spot. Then maybe the HR team can pull things together.

    Advice to Management

    Do skip levels.
