    I worked at REAL D as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people I worked with directly were awesome.

    Cons

    Management in almost every department was entirely inefficient with just about everything. There is no pro-activeness so everything becomes an emergency. Often times people are not given the tools they need in order to perform their job function.

    Advice to Management

    A great start would be an organizational chart. Training new employee's. Many departments do not have a road-map anywhere, where the company or department wants to be in X amount of time. Deadlines. Basic things that are easy to create

    Pros

    Co-Workers are great and really supportive

    Management & Ownership have no direction and everything is a fire drill. you need to lean on your peers more than management for support and results.
