Marvista Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
MarVista Entertainment is an American production company, based in Westwood, Los Angeles, California. The company mainly provides financing and some original content, mainly made-for-TV films and direct-to-SVOD titles, many of which are carried by networks such as Lifetime (such as the Will Ferrell/Kristen Wiig Lifetime Movie trope parody film A Deadly Adoption), along with Netflix, Ion Television and Hallmark Channel.
A former executive assistant angrily mentioned, "Management at MarVista did not have a clear understanding of how to motivate employees and suffered a high turn over rate because of it. Do not be fooled by tales of promotion. MarVista is a C-list production company that postures as though it is more."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"- Lack of integrity in leadership based on unethical practices and false information provided in interviews - No actions being taken by management to boost morale to avoid the intensely high turnover due to incompetent leaders who are clueless on how to motivate employees - Existing resources are being overworked and yet severely underpaid because employees who leave are not replaced. - Lack of a proper HR department and policies and as such, other departments are expected to perform HR functions - Lack of appreciation for hard-working employees because of favoritism when providing promotions, raises and bonuses"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Low morale due to high turnover and burnout - when one employee leaves, their workload goes to someone else instead of replacing the open position. Bonuses are built into employee offer letters with no intention to deliver due to vague language - only used to incentivize potential hires to join the company. Shady dealings by management to cut costs, which ruins company relations with talent, producers, guilds, and vendors. Poor communication by management to employees regarding company matters. Certain disclosures are only made if legally required or to prevent potential liability."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Company leaders tone-deaf to morale issues Lack of transparency from ownership Employees badly overworked and underpaid Abnormally high turnover without replacements Bonuses all but promised though not awarded"
