The People Made Me Stay
Executive Assistant, Office of the CIO (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CADecember 1, 2014
Pros: full benefits, paid vacations, smart people.
The truth is, I had learned everything I could from this job after two years. After that it was the people and friends I made that kept me there another nearly five years. My job was basic, answer the phones, schedule meetings, pay invoices, and other normal assistant duties.

The management left everyone alone pretty much unless they had to step in. But mostly everyone was trusted to complete their work on time and on their own accord and it worked well.

The hardest part of the job was that it became really easy and I didn't feel challenge, which led to my eventual resignation. The most enjoyable part were the people.

Low pressure and warm, welcoming environment if you have
Coordinator (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 27, 2014
Pros: frequent food trucks, free movies, comfortable dress code, long lunches, easy break schedule.
Cons: healthcare, slow advancement, high turnover, lots of inexperienced temps to train.
A typical 9-5 job (although more accurately a 7-4) with fairly frequent early days off. I found myself dabbling in multiple departments but management was reluctant to let me expand into any of them. I saw multiple coworkers downsized as my role expanded with no increase in pay, and they were replaced with inexperienced temps that low-level employees were expected to train with limited knowledge.

In one case, I had worked in an office for less than a few days before I was spending more than an hour training another employee who had worked there much longer how to do our joint job more effectively. This was a frequent occurrence as higher-level employees were often too busy to explain the basics of the job and delegated training to employees with a fairly limited scope of knowledge.

All said and done, though, it was an easy-going environment with very little pressure except to be accurate and open-minded.

Pros: free movie screenings
Cons: no advancement opportunities
Working for Fox Entertainment has been nice I really don't have too many bad things to say about the company other than being able to advance within the company if you don't know the right people.

Fun, Energetic and Innovative Entertainment Studio
Manager (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 30, 2013
Pros: working in a fast-paced studio environment with emerging technologies
Cons: career development and succession planning, salary
Each day presents new and challenging situations for the entrepreneurial spirit, such as partnering with sales and marketing offices to meet the needs of top-tier companies in home entertainment, such as Amazon, Apple, Hulu and Netflix. I learned how to adapt to a dynamic and evolving environment as the studio transitioned from traditional media manufacturing and production to the emerging digital landscape. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that millions of people across the country and around the world enjoy our products regularly with their friends and families.
