    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The parks are fun, people work hard and proud of the work the company does for animal rescue and to create fun and exciting rides.

    Cons

    At the corporate office they do not respect you. The Chief Strategic officer acts like a child, cursing people out frequently and is horrible to work with. He likely gets his behavior from the chairmen of the board who does the same.

    Advice to Management

    Companies that value their employees get more productivity than companies that repeatedly beat down their staff. It is all about earnings and cost cutting because you want to get rich on your stock but you are doing it at a cost of morals and values...although we know you don't care. Try to do the right thing and build a genuine culture of respect.
