    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Gotham Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    some great people, opportunities to learn, exposure to many aspects of entertainment, mentorship if with the right supervisor, opps to see how company is run

    Cons

    some politics, not a lot of opps for growth at middle levels, assistant pay is absolutely terrible despite the long hours

    Advice to Management

    pay assistants more

    I worked at The Gotham Group

    Pros

    Learned a little bit of information

    Cons

    Bosses had no respect for each other, let alone any of their interns. No one was motivated to do their work, little help as an intern from superiors.

  3. "Terrible work environment"

    I worked at The Gotham Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The clients are the only good feature at the company that really has no influence on your job as an assistant.

    Cons

    They have the worst management. They give no feedback. And fire for no reason. All the assistants are mean to each other and backbiting. No one is helpful. Management acts as if they are on their high horse and give no feedback to assistants. They act like the assistants don't even exist.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and give helpful feedback to employees to make a healthy and pleasant work environment.

    I worked at The Gotham Group

    Pros

    The office is located in Hollywood far from the busy area. They have in the same building a couple of other companies and sometimes you can see someone famous coming to buy a house. Every moth they had a meeting/ class for the interns and assistants.

    Cons

    ZERO feedback on my work specially on the coverages that I worked so hard. The inveroment is not friendly, everybody hates each other but they try to hide it. Ellen never spoke with any of us and that made us very nervous to have any conversation with the other managers. The place has potencial but is small for so much ego.

    Advice to Management

    Jewish people don't like german cars.

    I worked at The Gotham Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company has a lot of vacation days.

    Cons

    Bad pay, people are over worked and Ellen Goldsmith Vein has a few screws lose. Her Husband Jon Vain thinks he is involved in the company but has no percentage of ownership or even has any company affiliation. They have terminated employees unjustly and don’t care about what the employees have to say. They take lavished vacations and are worried about keeping money in their pockets instead of paying employees. Ellen...
