Good place to work
Sr. Audiovisual Engineer (Former Employee) –  Glendale, CAJune 9, 2016
Good, stable job, but not cutting edge. Although the company is small, the aspirations and goals are big, there's a natural feeling of not having enough money and people.

Productive and creative environment to work in.
Director, Hardlines (Current Employee) –  Glendale, CANovember 17, 2015
They are a company that takes very good care of their employees. The atmosphere is full of creative and innovative professionals. I learned how to grow in a collaborative department with highly motivated and dedicated people. The most enjoyable part of my job was working hand in hand with the products and licensees.

Doing too much and not getting great
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Glendale, CAOctober 6, 2012
The company is doing so many things and making so many films, the lack of focus and concentration shows. The company is not getting great at anything.

Top-heavy. There are too many managers in the kitchen.

Hardest part of the job are the many unstructured meetings.

Best part of the job is actually getting some work done.
Pros
free lunches
