    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA

    Pros

    This company offered the opportunity to work with some of the top professionals in the Film/Video industry.

    Cons

    Terrible work place environment created by senior management. Management ineptitude resulted in a "Talent Refresh," the process of firing employees who challenged bad management decisions.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Northvale, NJ

    Pros

    tv work in nj
    not much else

    Cons

    nepotism, no degree of any kind needed to work here.
    people with no digital video experience work as "compressionists"
    people who don't even know what "right click on your mouse" means work with computers
    no clear direction of where the company is headed
    people with real skills and qualifications get laid off while incompetence gets rewarded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fire people with actual skills. Stop hiring people with no video background as compressionists

    Place is kind of clickish. Poor management. Doesn't want to be bothered with anything you tell them, bad attitudes. Fileroom clerk is not very friendly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get managers who will listen to you instead of pushing you away and telling you that they don't
    have time or do not want to be bothered with your ideas
