Complaint Review: Negnu Network or Negnu Studios
Negnu Network or Negnu Studios1520 W Mineral Road Suite 4 Tempe, Arizona United States of America
Negnu Network or Negnu Studios Paradise Vibe Studios Sham Business Hires Slave Labor, Doesn't Pay the IRS and Handles Business Under the Table Tempe, Arizona
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Not the experience I want anyone to have
*UPDATE Employee: ALL LIES!!!! BEWARE OF FALSE ACCUSATIONS MADE BY BITTER PEOPLE!!!
Negnu Network does not have a functioning website but that has not stopped them from hiring employees on a "contract" basis. Negnu Network brings on all employees on two week trials and pays them little over $300 a week for highly skilled positions. Negnu writes in the contract that if you do "unsatisfactory work" that the employee forfeits payment. Most people hired on a two week trial are not kept past that period. The company has not paid a significant portion of the people they hire on a two week period. Pierre P. Joseph also hand writes checks and you have to beg him on payday to be paid. The owner is unprofessional, smokes pot in the office and while driving, does no work, uses the company as a way of luring women and models to the office, and clearly knows nothing about labor laws or the IRS.
Negnu Network does not deduct taxes from any employees check and does not require that the employees fill out a W-4 or W-9. Pierre P. Joseph apparently doesn't know the difference between an independent contractor and employee. Everyone that works there must report to the office, signin and out, use their computers etc. The company treats everyone as an employee, which means Negnu is not paying state or federal payroll taxes, is not contributing to the employees social security and is generally guilty of tax evasion.
Beware of being lured in by this company. Not only will you not get paid but the owner (when he doesn't do pot) will scream at you and make it seem like you are the reason for the business not being successful.
Negnu also has no real clients. The company was founded when Pierre P. Joseph cashed in his Intel stock. The owner funds the business and has been unable to generate real revenue. The money that is earned is cash and under the table, which means Negnu is also not paying their regular taxes.
