More Pros and Cons

  1. "VIP Tour Guide"

    Pros

    Fun job! Make a lot of friends. Lots of down time. Get to navigate the lot.

    Cons

    The training is long and stressful. Management only cares about numbers and saving money. Will send part time seasonal employees homes early before they can even work a full 8 hours. They rotate seasonal employees in and out like nothing instead of giving full time positions. The pay is very very bad.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage, allow your employees to make a living.

    Pros

    Large entertainment company.

    Stellar group of employees who know what they're doing.

    Technological leader in content delivery and security.

    Great benefits.

    Fun to be part of a working Hollywood lot.

    Cons

    Kevin Tsujihara is running the company into the ground. Laying off employees left and right while using the "savings" to make crap content like Man of Steel and Pan and Batman v Superman (how can you ruin something like that?!) and Legend of Tarzan.

    The management culture is very nepotistic, be prepared to be passed over for promotions if you are not one of the family/favorites (qualified or not). Preferential treatment is given to those who are in the "inner circle" vs those who work hard and do their jobs but are not, consequently, you end up with some management who is under qualified and terrible at management.

    Advice to Management

    To Kevin: You may be great at FINANCE, but step down and get someone in there that knows MOVIES.

    To management in general, look around you, you have a lot of talented people who deserve better than they are getting. Promote through the ranks and stop playing the schoolyard favorites game.
