Free lunches while on set, running errands and working with big film crews so you would not really know any one name or what they do. its great for a resume though

Mainframe Resource/Developer (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 18, 2018
The company's work environment is very relaxed. The dress code is very casual. There is a lot of interaction with the business users. The work is fixed and very rigid.

Will recommend. Great work experience. Worked as an intern and only six month. I did not stay there long enough to provide enough information about the working conditions and career advancement opportunities.

Studio in Crisis
Senior Vice President (Current Employee) –  Hollywood, CAMay 5, 2018
Too busy trying to dig out of a ditch with a poor slate of films to think about the future - likely a buy out candidate so lots of fear and paranoia abound

Fun but conservative company
MBA Intern - Marketing (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 4, 2018
Working on the lot at Paramount was a dream come true. The company is interesting in that some of the higher-ups are vocal about seeking change to accommodate the digital era but end up hesitant to actually implement any new endeavor which may be considered risky.

Interesting Place to Work
Manager, Special Events (Current Employee) –  Hollywood, CAOctober 23, 2017
There were a lot of benefits to working at Paramount; tons of paid holidays, screenings for the families, and employee groups you could join. However, there is limited advancement opportunity and HR is not helpful with that.

Coordiantor (Current Employee) –  Hollywood, CASeptember 27, 2017
I never have a typical day and I love that. Everyday provides a new experience and an opportunity to learn about the business of media production. I love that I can talk to people on the physical side of production, as well as, the business side. Paramount Pictures provides a well rounded experience for those individuals who want to take the initiative and be the next leaders in the entertainment industry.

Exec Assistant - SVP Domestic TV Research (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 11, 2017
Very low-key job that didn't ask to go above and beyond so it was perfect for a screenwriter like myself. The manager was a bit to bear as she lacked the social skills to manage people.
Pros
Great to be on the Paramount lot, free screening, parties, etc.
Cons
