    Taking advantage of talent

    Feb 26, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you’re into sports you’ll be involved in sports conversation everyday There’s opportunities to attend events usually only for full time though

    Cons

    Most roles are part-time, seasonal, contract the company takes advantage of these roles and talent without giving them full time benefits and perks. Makes it hard to want to stay with this company Very cliquey Onboarding is not great, 30 mins presentation and you’re on your own Non full time are treated like bottom of the barrel people with almost no incentives and have to be around full time people constantly talking about events they attend, things they have access to etc Forcing employees to go into office 5 days a week saying that COVID isn’t much of an issue meanwhile they send an email at least once a week communicating that someone in the office has gotten covid. Almost every role can be done without being in the office especially since most members of each team are spread throughout different locations. They just need bodies to fill the offices while creating micro managing to “Covid safety”

    Great People/Enviroment - Terrible Corporate Management

    Jun 2, 2022 - Senior Graphic Artist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Teams are filled with wonderful passionate talented people. The Senior Creative staff is encouraging and supportive. It makes for a great place to test new ideas do really good work. They're flexible and understanding, despite the corporate overlords. Also the work is hourly and that's really amazing when it comes to overtime. Free meals in the building cafeteria (although i can see it going back to "discounted" at any time)

    Cons

    It's fulltime freelance - so you're hired/paid through a recruitment agency. Unpaid holidays. Corporate flexibility for remote work is unwavering citing "work culture" as the reason. ZERO benefits through the NFL. As such they don't care about you and it shows. Despite the promise for one during several Department wide meetings we've been gaslit about receiving raises for at least the last full year. I've never gotten one in all my years so far. The current staff has been at half its normal capacity for again almost a full year, and no raises. Record profits and praise by all upper management for the quality of the work. No raises. Inflation at an all time high. No raises. Corporate could care less about you. The only thing they provide is an hourly rate and they've done noting in the way of supporting the creative staff, especially during the pandemic.

    A once stunning jewel that has become a sad sinking ship

    Nov 19, 2021 - Marketing 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Smart and passionate colleagues who are genuinely good people -Football being the subject matter of your work is fun -Huge brand recognition, opening doors for you anywhere else once you have it on your resume -People will think you have a really cool job (but you will be silently weeping on the inside with a smile on your face)

    Cons

    -The company is on a fast sinking downhill trajectory that seems impossible to stop, would highly encourage interested applicants to wait a year or two before joining -LA division is being primed to be sold in the coming year, causing very low morale with the threat of mass layoffs ahead -All employees were forced to return to work 5x a week with limited/no flexibility -HR is grossly incompetent and has turned over every single year with no recourse -There are no consistent policies for growth, raises, development, and more = impossible to be promoted on schedule -Contractors make up a significant portion of the workforce and are relied on like full-time employees but do not have benefits, paid holidays, etc.

    Pros

    Work with awesome, smart people, great exposure across the organization and the industry, fun events and travel.

    Cons

    Company culture is not great. Very old school and stuck in their ways. Still has the mentality of "you should be happy to be here" vs "we're happy to have you."
