Perks and Programs

We asked Legendary Entertainment to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Employee Referral Program: At Legendary, we are always looking to grow our teams with talented people! Refer qualified candidates to HR, and if that individual is hired as a Full-Time employee, as a "thank you," we will offer you a monetary bonus as outlined below. REFER AN EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OR BELOW: $250 REFER A VP AND ABOVE: $500
  • Tuition Reimbursement Program: Legendary is committed to the continual development of its employees! Under this program, full-time employees who enroll in a continuing education program through an accredited educational institution may be reimbursed up to $5,000 per year.
  • Unlimited Vacation: All exempt employees receive unlimited vacation!
  • Paid Volunteer Opportunities: We hold an annual Volunteer "Impact" Day where the company shuts down so employees may volunteer within the community. We hold a companywide Happy Hour at the end of the day so the company may bond over their day. We also hold ongoing volunteer opportunities throughout the year and lunch and learns where we "spotlight" various organizations. In addition to that, we are also working on rolling out "The 7 Day Sabbatical" which will allow employees to take a week off to volunteer. We are finalizing the programming around this with our CEO now.
  • Summer Fridays: All employees may leave at 1pm on Fridays, beginning Memorial Day Weekend and ending Labor Day Weekend.
  • Internship Program: To ensure our Interns have the best experience possible with plenty of educational opportunities, each semester, interns have the opportunity to sign up for a variety of events. Examples include Lunch and Learns/Q&A with a panel of employees from each department at the company, access to employee events such as screenings, access to on-site subsidized food and free beverages, attending an LA Dodgers game in the box suite with our CEO, mock interviews with the HR team, and participation in our Volunteer "Impact Day".
  • HR Advisory Council: The HR Advisory Council is made up of one representative from each department at the company, along with the HR team. The Council meets once a month to discuss new initiatives/programs/projects, address any employee feedback/questions, and to encourage each department representative to provide departmental updates. This ensures ongoing companywide communication and transparency.
  • Wellness Initiatives: Legendary's building includes a new gym which is heavily subsidized by the company, resulting in employees paying only $10/month. That $10 gives employees access to train for free with an on-site Legendary personal trainer, as well as attend unlimited free on-site wellness classes. Legendary is also participating in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon which raises money for Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
  • Executive Speaker Series: To increase communication amongst departments, and to give all employees an opportunity to learn about our leaders here at Legendary and their roles within the organization, we host an on-site Executive Speaker Series. Legendary leaders will discuss how they got their start in the industry, their role at Legendary, and invite questions from the audience.
