      Pros

      Literally the only thing running like a well-oiled machine at this company is the mailroom

      Cons

      Lack of leadership. Senior management barely shows up when you need them but when they do they mostly spend their time belittling the performance of departments that are being held together by shoestrings. It's all just smoke and mirrors. Keep hiring under qualified candidates to fill

      Both the best and worst place I've ever worked

      Pros

      Playboy is a company that has some really great benefits. The parties and the lifestyle are very cool.

      Cons

      One of the most poorly structured companies I've ever worked for. More VPs with silo'd divisions unwilling to cooperate with each other for fear of being proved incompetent. One of the most hyper-political companies with an incredibly talented staff most set up against each other instead of united in common goals. MBA textbooks written in 1985 could prescribe fixes to these organizational issues. Senior management has been looting the place for years which resulted in near bankruptcy that was staved off by allowing a private equity firm to take the company private and sell off or license every division. Understandable, but awful to work for. Playboy has basically eliminated or outsourced most of their workforce. Much of the company is run by the Canadian porn company Manwin.

      OK pay, good benefits and travel

      Poor long term vision, seems like senior management wants to come in and live the playboy life instead of making sound decisions.

      Like the models: Great on the outside, dumb on the inside.

      Pros

      It's a very laid back atmosphere. The dress is casual and it's one of those places where as long as you get your work done, it doesn't matter what time you show up for work. It's a nice office and with a huge atrium and artwork all around the office.

      Cons

      It's a company founded on beauty and elitism, which trickles down to how they treat their employees. V.P.'s and above are treated great; anything lower is treated fairly crappy. They feel because of their name, it's a privilege to work for them. There's a lot of senior management, but not enough workers to get the jobs done. It's kind of a 'too many cooks in the kitchen' when it comes to making decisions there and it takes a while to get things done. A lot of red tape there.
