Before the pandemic, it was somehow tolerable to work here, but in the meantime it became very obvious how toxic this place is. I'm not going to let the daily stress affect my health and I'm looking for other options. It can only get worse here... — read more

I have so much to offer. I believe in making the parks better. They got their big payouts. Is upper management leaving now?
I hoped in vain that everything would get better after the pandemic. Who would have thought that almost nothing here would be any better now than it was during the peak of the pandemic? Moreover, this place seems more toxic to me than ever... — read more
My entire life was SeaWorld and they through me out like trash. SR you are heartless. You should have imbraced us. We cared about the Parks. MS is a wimp too. He could have tried to keep us.

Anyone else hope the stock market crashes before the higher ups get their big payday next month? How many of them do we think will peace out after they cash in?
It’s basically a money making machine. No heart left. The HR Hiring department was eliminated and outsourced. No employee relations, no employee events, rewards. It used to be a great place to work at with many long term employees. All of the higher... — read more

California being anti captivity, blackfish, and now covid restrictions? The park is a shell of its former self, may as well just shut it down.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/seaworld-coo-tom-iven-resigns-after-about-40-days-271628763712 How embarrassing and what proof of a toxic environment. The guy couldn't even make it two months dealing with SR and quit.
Nearing post summer, any word?
