We are proud of the culture we’ve built at Shout! Factory and the people who work here. So you may ask yourself: what is it like to work at Shout! Factory? The short answer: It’s great! And it’s great in large part because of our company culture. It’s the kind of place that believes no matter what we have been hired to do, we are not limited to or by our job descriptions. In fact, we know that each of our employees is more than just a person hired to do a job.


We’re fans: we care about the products we release. We’re good citizens: we care about our community and our world. We’re friends: we help and respect each other. We’re parents: we push each other to be more successful. We’re family: we may sometimes be slightly dysfunctional, but not in an unhealthy way! And because of this, our company culture is truly a special one. It’s one where we have each other’s back. One where it’s not so scary to give constructive criticism to each other. One where we celebrate our successes and acknowledge our failures. One where the benefits are both traditional (like health insurance) and not (like monthly guided meditation sessions). And one that encourages collaboration, creativity, hard work and compassion. It’s a place we work, but it’s not a workplace.

Getting away from the office can mean working at Botcon, San Diego Comic-Con, or other live production environments

We would like to acknowledge the essential contributions of Vickie Whatley, our former head of HR, in leading the effort to formalize and build initiatives around Shout! Factory’s core values. Although she is no longer with us, her legacy will live on.


Community Service

At Shout! Factory, we believe in making a difference. As a company and as individuals, we give back to our local and global community through volunteer hours and fundraising efforts. We have incorporated a company-wide Day of Service where we select a non-profit organization and volunteer as a group one day a year. We promote volunteerism among of employees by offering a community service program where employees are awarded with paid time off if they donate a minimum of 16 hours of their own time to a non-profit of their choice. Our founders are active in multiple non-profits. Here are just a few of the organizations we support:

Volunteering with Big Sunday at Western Avenue Elementary (May 2019)

Volunteering with L.A Kitchen (February 2018)

LEFT: Volunteering with My Friend's Place (January 2017), RIGHT: Volunteering with The Spark Program (May 2016)
