Legendary Entertainment Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Legendary Pictures Productions, LLC, doing business as Legendary Entertainment or simply Legendary, is an American film production and mass media company based in Burbank, California. The company was founded by Thomas Tull in 2000 and in 2005 concluded an agreement to co-produce and co-finance films with Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures. Since 2016, Legendary has been a subsidiary of the Chinese conglomerate Wanda Group.
One security guard officer shared this in a review, "A day with this company is a guessing game you never know what may happen cause your doing security at night clubs and many different locations you have to make sure all is secured and the patrons are safe."
Former Employee - Full Time says"Upper management is only concerned with advancing their personal interests and sometimes make decisions that aren't necessarily best for the company as a whole. HR spreads gossip and confidential information about employees including members of the upper management team, which creates a really toxic environment starting from the top. Company is run on minimum headcount so everyone is overworked. Lack of diversity. Huge amount of turnover across departments. If you can get in to a department that has a good leader and you are somewhat shielded from the c-suite then will probably be a good experience, but there is little room for promotion or raises per how HR is run, so beware of that."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Leadership (or lack thereof). Decisions have recently been made that all but doom LDN (specifically Nerdist and Geek & Sundry) and everyone in the company knows it, aside from our stubborn President who has massive delusions of grandeur. There is zero doubt that in a year's time, the Nerdist and Geek & Sundry brands will either cease to exist in their current forms, or Legendary will sell them off for pennies, all because of the current trajectory. With the above said, along with the suffocating stranglehold the executive team has placed on everything, we are experiencing a steady stream of key talent leaving the company in it's most crucial moments. People here are undervalued, mistreated, and spoken to inappropriately by leadership who feel that they are untouchable. What is happening at LDN is so incredibly disappointing. There is unending potential here, and it could be an amazing place to work, but morale is nonexistent. It would be interesting if Legendary invested some time into taking a look at what was happening over at their little brother's place (LDN) - no doubt they would help right the ship."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Low growth opportunity, fear based management, low chance for impact"
Current Employee - Producer says"Management was a mess and turned over several times in the 2.5 years I was there. Very little communication. Felt like everyone was offered jobs they weren't prepared for. Most creatives hired on contract and considered "permalance" with little to no benefits."
says"Incompetent leadership, even down to the editors. Small people who misuse the tiny amount of power that they have as an excuse to treat their employees with disrespect."
Former Employee - Vice President Sales says"Terrible people management, no communication from the upper levels, no decision making or very slow to respond on international business matters. No visibility on future projects and no opportunities for growth. No company benefits for international employees."
Former Employee - Project Coordinator says"Not much support from upper management, poor work culture"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Unfair compensation. Limited room for salary growth and opportunity. Upper management at times felt very manipulative in the way in which they handled certain situations with employees."
says"Going through a lot of changes resulting in an unstable, uncertain work environment."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"CONS: - no benefits for full timers (hopefully that's not still the case with Legendary merger) - contractors at the mercy of the success of a show (as is the case with any job in the industry)"
eCom, Merchandising, Product Design & Dev (Former Employee) says"Great job culture, fantastic array of employees and variety of projects. Sadly management of hires, lack of promotion or adding headcount to suffering departments, can make it difficult to produce."
Assistant (Former Employee) says"Great place to start a career in the entertainment industry whether you're interested in feature film, tv production, comic books or virtual reality. Overall a very cool place!"
J. Shifman says"Probably the worst decision I've made. Not worth the money whatsoever. I've gotten more opportunities from Twitter. Don't waste your money. Just hustle on LinkedIn. Basically lit like $500 on fire."
Irma Norman says"When COVID19 hit, all of our jobs cancelled. Since large assemblies of people were banned at the local/state/federal levels, we were not getting any new leads or bookings. We asked TheBash-Gigmasters to "share the burden" and suspend our account for a couple of months, and let us reinstate with the same account credit later. They refused, saying "you can suspend your account, but will continue to debit your annual membership". In other words, THEY CONTINUE TO MAKE PROFIT FROM VENDORS DURING THE COVID19 crisis. (By the way, their competitor GigSalad offers this "suspension" feature with no hassle to the vendor.) Apparently TheBash-Gigmasters will squeeze their Vendors for better profits. Vendors are at the bottom of the food-chain.. They even sent all Vendors a notice, "encouraging" us to refund non-refundable deposits for the cancelled events (which we had already done), "so customers can use it for a future booking". TheBash would have Vendors pay ALL the burden for the COVID19 crisis, not customers, and certainly not The Bash. It would seem TheBash-Gigmasters is Profiteering from the COVID crisis. ****** response to GIGMaster's March 18th reply below***** Despite your elegant words, your actions prove that YOU ARE PROFITEERING ON THE COVID19 virus, making Vendors suffer the entire loss. We Vendors are in this crisis for MONTHS, and you offer TWO WEEKS? And, the employed vendors you mention is either a lie, or they have business that can function in this new virtual world. We are a band. The services we offer are punishable by fine/imprisonment by State/City. I await an HONEST reply, not your marketing B*^#!@it. ****** response to GIGMaster's March 30th reply ***** Now they want to "talk to me individually", probably to buy me out, and shut me up. Not falling for that, GigMasters. If you have a good solution it should be published here where all can see."
