Transform Operator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 18, 2017
It does not reward honest effort. Supervisors only hire and promote outside friends. It promotes and condones a fraternity house atmosphere. Extremely nepotistic and cliquish.

Dynamic Global Company
PM (Former Employee) –  Culver CityMay 9, 2014
A solid corporate structure supports a fun and dynamic work environment. There are great opportunities for advancement if you put in the work and are passionate. You get to work with offices all over the world which teaches you how to communicate with other cultures. I learned a lot in this company. I always felt supported and encouraged. Also, they're among the best in their field if not the best so that makes it easier and more fun.
