    Premium content
    Decent salaries/benefits (compared to studios)

    Perks - gym, free dental/vision, snacks, free lunches/parties
    Decent work/life balance and culture

    The predominantly white male executives love to talk about how the content is geared towards women and minorities, meanwhile it is abundantly clear than men are promoted faster and more frequently than women across all departments.

    Advice to Management

    You have many creative, young, talented people who would be committed to helping the company grow and succeed. The trouble is that no one, including HR, is connected to the employees and their development. It starts with the two of you who are driving the strategic direction of the company to set a new standard, establish culture, invest in people and the future leaders of the company, and instill a collaborative company culture. Also, establish strategies that your revenue-generating departments can execute on. Too often, people are left to collaborate with clients without direction/end goals in mind. That is because the company lacks proactive strategic execution and remains reactive in almost all environments. Be stewards of innovation and provide support to your middle management and subsequent employee base. Everyone will be better off - including the people you all care most about...yourselves.
