Enjoyable but Mostly Boring Work Place
Legal Administrator (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 7, 2016
Working at a movie studio you'd think it would be crazy and you'd see some cool things, not the case here. Co-workers are a bit depressing (they make it obvious they do not like their jobs), working in legal the majority of the work is filing...that is all. This past summer there were quite a few ice cream socials for various events that were fun to attend, and who doesn't like free ice cream? Overall departments are isolated and there isn't much cross-over or collaboration, at least on the assistant level.

A great company depending on which department you work for
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 5, 2016
The Paramount Pictures campus is an incredible and historic place to work. The hardest part about working here is the bureaucracy/politics and the never-ending workload. My favorite part of Paramount is its Giving Back culture from Viacommunity Day to all the multiple different volunteer opportunities they provide for their workers, particularly their Kindergarten to Cap & Gown program - it is the highlight of my years here. The health and wellness benefits are also great.

Exciting Place to Work!
Manager, Financial Planning (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 25, 2016
You're experience will very much be dependent upon the group you work with, as is true with most of the studios. It's a beautiful lot to stroll through at lunch or breaks. Lots of history there.

Multinational film studio owned by a conglomerate
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 9, 2016
Paramount Pictures is a world-renowned film studio which makes the marketing department an exciting and dynamic place to work. I've worked on all of the campaigns for Paramount films starting with Labor Day in 2013. I work in the Creative Content department, where we create featurettes, pull clips for publicity, and also create custom content for our films. We've lately been much more involved in creating digital content for our recent films such as 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE, ZOOLANDER 2, and DADDY'S HOME. I work in a very friendly and open work environment and I enjoy working closely with our in house editing team to create content. I am constantly liaising between editors and producers to facilitate the creation of content along strict timelines.

Great to work on lot that makes movies / TV.
Executive Assistant/Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, CADecember 28, 2015
Learned many programs and applications.
Management would allow you to be involved in as much as you wanted with new opportunities.
Hard part is not knowing if you will be able to work at company for years to come.
Pros
Cafe on Lot
Cons
Uncertainty if you can work at company for years to come

Historic Movie Studio - What More Could You Ask For

A wonderfully historic movie studio with great management. It's not everyday you get to experience the ins and outs of a major movie studio and Paramount is no exception.

Hard to get your foot in
Materials Coordinator (Temporary) (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 14, 2015
It's hard to get your foot into a company and hard to go from a temporary position to a full time position. Otherwise, it was a good company to work for.

Sr. Financial Analyst, FP&A_TV Planning (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 15, 2015
Paramount employees are mainly happy working there for the studio experience. It's a very old studio and holds many history dear to it. People are friendly and work environment is different from department to department. Some more corporate and studio side more laid back. There is a place for everyone.
Pros
free movies, may fun perks
Cons
older office builidings

Interesting place to work. Not all about umbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of any big company.

Positive work environment, but endless, meetings and changes.
DIRECTOR OF TRANSACTIONAL EST/VOD (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, CAMarch 17, 2015
Overall I enjoyed my time at Paramount, but upon reflection, felt that the way processes are implemented are really just to cope with new problems and that the overall systems in place are not well thought out or cohesive. You have to be adept at handling very heavy workloads with some unrealistic timelines. There are a lot of computer programs that are not efficiently utilized (as in they are specifically silo-ed for one department and are not cross-functional to benefit all divisions). The personnel have a positive, close, family-like structure and team members are always helpful and knowledgeable.
Pros
Lovely Christmas Party and Movie Screenings
Cons
Not a lot of advancement opportunities, rigid work processes.

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  LA, CMarch 16, 2015
Paramount was a good place to work. It really, really used to be like a family.
Last six years, everyone out for themselves. No culture, no home, no family anymore.
Get what you can while you can.
