High paced environment. Global organiation, high level of complexity. Great people.
Manager of Financial Planning and Analysis (Former Employee), Beverly Hills, CA – June 10, 2013
Pros: interesting work
Cons: to much work
High paced environment. More work then there is people to do it. I have learned quiet a bit about how international business, systems and how to work with people from many different countries. Management is typically supporting. Hardest part of the job is various level of complexity involved with doing business overseas (e.g., regulations, statutory – more... reporting vs. US GAAP reporting, etc). The most enjoyable aspect of the job is working with a lot of smart people from a lot of different countries. – less
Library clerk (Former Employee), los angeles, ca – November 5, 2012
a typical day at work was i would have to build pallets with boxes and containers of film. after doing so i would then need to scan all the film for quality assurance so it could be sent to be stored in the vaults. Twice a day i would drive around the lot and either pick up or drop off various pieces of film or video that was needed by other departments. – more... The hardest part was the physical demand on a regular basis the boxes and containers would easily weigh 50+ lbs, also in the vaults that we used. it didn't make it any easier climbing a 10 foot ladder and trying to pull a box that heavy off a shelf. the most enjoyable part of the job was the supervision. if i ever had a problem i would go ask my boss or if he had anything important to tell me he would come find me but other then that i knew what needed to get done and my bosses left me alone to do so. – less
Family oriented and friendly corporate environment

Assistant General Manager (Former Employee), Roanoke, VA – September 6, 2012
Pros: good pay, good benefits and good work hours once i got the place cleaned up.

15 hr days for first 8 months then 8-5p after that. Learned patience and how to deal with all personality types. Hardest part of the job was dealing with management. The most enjoyable part, all the fun stuff a TV station employee gets to do (including meeting celeb's)
Production Assistant (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – August 17, 2012
12 hour shifts, but the pay was good. Its a production company and there were a lot of egos at play. They only cared about one thing and that was to make money. Company doesnt view you as an asset. No social life if you work in movie production.
Financial Business Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NY – June 13, 2012
Pros: people are friendly
Cons: long hours, no work life balance, no flexiblity, no diversity
On a positive note, the business users of the department were very nice and would make time to have discusssions related to work. This was only the case if they weren't being pounced on by management on meeting a deadline. The company is quite antiquated in there technologies which results in alot of manual processes. And staff work extremely long hours. – more... What I found interesting is this company doesn't want to compensate you for the work that you do.
A typical day consisted of being constantly micromanaged by the project manager and working long hours. I wouldn't recommend this company for anyone whose intelligent and is an independent thinker. There is no room for growth and I would definately not recommend a minority working here. If you have blond hair and blue eyes and look like a model you are sure to succeed. – less
