Executive Assistant to SVP of TV Development (Current Employee) – Hollywood, CA – August 16, 2017
This job involves a high volume of scheduling and rolling calls as well as a lot of reading and analyzing scripts for executives. I have to keep track of over 30 projects simultaneously in all different stages of development. It can get very busy so multitasking is a must as it a positive attitude in stressful situations.

Absolutely fabulous place to work. Beautiful and well maintained studio lot with options for breakfast, lunch, and coffee daily. Majority of people on the lot are happy to be there and work there. My managers in the auditing department were some of the best I ever had.
Project Manager/Sr. Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Hollywood, CA – July 12, 2017
There is definitely a mystique involved in working for a major Hollywood studio, but at the end of the day, it's really no different that any other industry.
As part of IT Finance, we managed all the IT related projects that ran the studio. In my role as Sr. Systems Analyst/Project Manager and application owner, I was involved in the implementation of a Portfolio and Project Management tool called Clarity, and work with dozens of Project Managers on dozens of small, medium, and huge projects for the benefit of the studio.
Working in the magic of Hollywood
Extremely poor Sr. Management in Information Technology

Revenue Cycle Analyst (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 2, 2017
I had a good experience at Paramount. Fun Perks but not many advancement opportunities. I worked with great, caring people it was just a hard location to commute to everyday like most jobs in LA. I feel that I was treated very fairly there.
Awesome perks like movie swag and free screenings.
Great position to have on resume but doesn't build skills
Production Finance Intern (Former Employee) – Hollywood, CA – May 30, 2017
I was in the production finance department and the typical day didn't involve much work. Most of the day was spent filing cabinets and checking SAP to see if all receipts are in order. Management was friendly and the perks were great.
Spring Intern (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – May 17, 2017

Assistant to Vice President of Development (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 2, 2017
Paramount was a highly stressful and competitive environment when I worked here. The management pick on the younger executives and sometimes assistants. It's probably the least supportive place I've ever worked and my direct manager was really hard to work for. The pay is terrible and the hours are long. It wasn't worth it in the end.
Manager of Finance (Former Employee) – Hollywood, CA – April 18, 2017
Paramount offers a good work-life balance. Non-work related activities are encouraged (screenings, softball, volunteerism) which is a moral booster. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you come into contact with and the relationships you build.
Executive Assistant to Executive Vice President (Former Employee) – Hollywood, CA – February 6, 2017
I worked at Paramount for 5 years and it was one of the best companies I have ever worked at. Not only did I advance my career and talent but the business/friendships I made are those that I am truly grateful for.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 21, 2016
Working at Paramount was fun, but it all depends on your boss and the people you're working with. People hardly ever get ahead or promoted, unless your boss really really likes you. The pay is horrible. Moral is bad. They have layoffs every single year. Most of the SVP's are really mean and degrading to their team. You never know when you're going to lose your job. Other than that, the job perks are fun.
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 15, 2016
Constantly on the move Learned numerous roles under the title of production assistant Accommodated both cast and crew on set needs Managed the schedules of cast and crew Most difficult part of the job were the hours, must be first on set and last to leave I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the cast and crew and learning each role they played within the production. I have a passion for film and tv. Having the given access to the set was incredibly exciting alone with educational.
