    I worked at Village Roadshow full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People at the individual contributor level were nice and there were some nice company events.

    Cons

    I was honestly suprised by how stagnant this organisation was; looking down the barrel of massive year over year declines in it's largest categories, hugely overdependant on limited partners and failing to attract and retain good talent the company invests in some quite frankly odd places. There was restructure after restructure, some people made redundant, some people promoted in positions they weren't suited to. I decided to leave after hearing the CMOs outlook for the following year. The company also claims to be flexible, but this really means - if you have children, creating this farcical situation at around 4:30 on Fridays where people are finished for the week but are just counting down the clock.

    I worked at Village Roadshow full-time

    Pros

    Met some great people who have now become friends. The experience taught me alot on many levels.

    Cons

    Worst ever professional working experience. Toxic management culture to the core based on often making light of things that haven't gone exactly to plan to rarely acknowledging staff on wins, good work or jobs well done. Staff feel disposable and unappreciated. Huge turnover this year with approx 20% leaving since December 2019 and more to come. Wouldn't recommend it unless there's a huge culture shift and management restructure.
