Fazal Merchant the new CFO just bought a $180,000 sports car

Just out of respect don't you have to wait at least 6 months after laying off 20% of the company to show up in a car that's twice as expensive as the CEO's? I guess the million dollar bonus he got in December (http://biz.yahoo.com/e/140819/dwa8-k.html) was burning a whole in his pocket. What's he ... read more

Get the plunger, it's time to flush!

What a toilet this place has become. Look at all the execs floating around in the bowl that need to be flushed down. How can they even walk around on campus (which we don't even own anymore) and look anyone in the eye? All the artists here should just create their own business plan and pitch it to ... read more

RIP KFP

Apparently the talentless hacks cannot even manage a SEQUEL, to just continue writing a story with BUILT IN CHARACTERS? Maybe the story department can start taking field trips to any coffee house in LA where you literally trip over unemployed writers with more ability.

How the execs waste our money: Exhibit 1

The "Executive Briefing Center". What a boondoggle waste of cash. Good place to score some nice snacks after a bogus synergy meeting the execs like to have with companies who know a sucker when they see one though.

Failing your way to fortune

The bigger the failure at DWA, the bigger your fortune.

Why did you vote?

I admit, I filled out the Fortune best company questionnaire and fibbed. For some reason, I wanted a good rank. But why? Because we get balloons and cookies for our birthday? It wasn't really that great, even in the good times. Why were we deluding ourselves?

You might not get free lunch or a bottomless ice cream machine, but you will get management that is ethical, caring and knows how to turn a profit. Is all this stress worth ... read more
