Very intresting way to work and be behind the scenes of the show life
Summer Intern (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 28, 2018
I learned that in order to make it into the "show biz" you need to have connects or you have to start at the bottom. Its a good mix of easy and hard work, it balances itself out.

Great benefits but need to be in right division for advancement
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, CAMay 31, 2018
Company is going through a lot of changes but headed in the right direction. If you can thrive in small studio environment and handle quickly changing priorities this is a good place. Management quickly changing and old way of doing business is no longer appropriate...must be flexible. Generally nice co-workers and a beautiful lot.
Pros
a lot of time off and great benefits
Cons
Not enough resources to manage that business. Changing Management (constantly) and expectations.

Production Assistant -Transformers 4 (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 20, 2018
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

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.

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.

Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 23, 2018
The IS department at Paramount Pictures used to be big, with many projects. Now they've downsized and lost many good people. It's a very intense climate.

Paramount is a great place to work...
Project Manager - TV/Airline Editorial (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJanuary 19, 2018
...just be sure to negotiate your salary well before accepting employment because significant raises/promotions do not come easy. Otherwise its actually one of the funner, easy going film studios to work for.

World Wide Home Media - Vice President (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJanuary 3, 2018
Paramount Pictures was a fun place to work. They went through some changes with the changing media platforms which created layoffs. This was devastating to long term employees. At the same time they are hiring positions which people could have filled.
