Los Angeles Industries That Use Business

More than a quarter-million businesses call Los Angeles County home. Industries that use business in the Los Angeles area include entertainment, finance and banking, high-technology research and development, and manufacturing. The area is also popular for start-ups. 


Los Angeles, home of the film and television industry, is famous for acting, editing, and graphic design jobs. Behind the scenes, however, are many business jobs. Prominent production companies such as Universal Studios Inc., Disney Studios, Paramount Pictures, and CBS Television Studios all employ people with business expertise. Business-focused individuals may find work as Department or Event Supervisors, Sales Directors, Program Directors, or Executive Assistants– all essential roles for any entertainment company. 

Finance and Banking

Since Los Angeles is a hub for many businesses, it requires substantial financial and banking companies to support them. Companies such as the Capital Group, Houlihan Lokey, Colony Capital, and City National Bank assist businesses with their finances. Whether it’s providing checking account services, payroll services, or loans, these companies help businesses thrive and grow. Careers in this industry may include becoming a Business Finance Analyst, Business Relationship Manager, Program Manager, or Director. 

High-Technology Research and Development

Research and Development is a massive industry in sunny Southern California. HRL Laboratories, Prosegur, and Avanade Inc., among others, focus on developing technology. These businesses may employ Engineers and Product Developers, yet they also require Business Development Executives and Sales Managers, to name a few, to make the company profitable.


Companies focusing on creating a product also have an established presence in the Los Angeles area. Some manufacturing companies in LA include Stelee Industries, Broadcom, and Medtronic. Running these companies takes individuals skilled in business. Production Managers, CFOs, Production Supervisors, and Directors may all be necessary for a manufacturing business to run.

Business Jobs & Salaries in Los Angeles

Business jobs across industries tend to pay well in Los Angeles, though some industries pay more than others. 

A Production Manager averages over $85K per year, but the range is significant. Working as a Production Manager for technology companies such as Netflix or Apple yields a higher salary, possibly as much as $176K annually. A manufacturing company such as Northrop Grumman may pay a Production Manager slightly less– around $116K annually. 

Sales Managers may have a more minor pay discrepancy between different industries. A Sales Manager in LA averages $87K annually, plus $40K of commission. Working for MileOne Autogroup, a Sales Manager may make around $190K, or $172K for Synopsys. Most experienced Sales Managers command high salaries in the area.
