    I have been working at Entertainment One full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of forums for ideas and opportunities to contribute. Steep learning curve but you’re better for it. Global employee base is fun, ambitious, and always helpful.

    Cons

    Not many - would like to see more career mobility between groups. It does happen but not very often.

    Pros

    Fair and good treatment overall. Growth is warranted on your own initiatives.

    Pros

    Nice office/building. Generous benefits and amenities. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Talking down to inferiors. Lack of company and community morale. Lack of training. Expecting too much from new hires. Co-workers and higher-ups constantly spreading gossip and talking negatively about other employees. When the going gets tough, they simply clean house.
