    Lots of "Indians" and not enough "Chiefs"

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHard-working people. Does not have the feel of a large studio.

    ConsThere were a lot of underperformers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people who are familiar with the business segment they work in.

    Politics and No communication

    Coordinator (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsWonderful location. If you get in a good department with good people you will enjoy yourself for a while.

    ConsCapitalism at it's finest. Upper management doesn't care about anything but themselves. They are constantly giving each other praises and bonuses while pay raises and promotions take years to get through the pipeline

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop greasing your pockets and make a good movie and share the wealth. You aren't really worth 66 assistant's salaries.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A stepping-stone company...not a career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou can gain a lot of experience at Lionsgate.

    ConsThere is little opportunity to grow and the longer you work, the less you are rewarded and the more you are pigeon-holed in to your duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much to mention in a short review...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Learn as much as you can and move on to other places that value you and pay you well.

    Manager (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsLionsgate is a good place to start and learn the business. You get hands on experience with many facets of the business. Depending on department, you can modify your work hours and you can work from home if you're trusted by your supervisor. You can make good connections for your career. It looks good on your resume.

    ConsUpper management has no respect for people under them. Pay is really lousy and by now about 50% below what everybody pays. Promotions and advancement is based on who you know and not how you work. The whole management of the company is complete chaos to hide people with VP titles that produce absolutely nothing. Nepotism is live and well here. Positions that become vacant are not replaced and instead the work load is distributed among people in the same department or to other departments. HR is completely inefficient and enlarges only their own department. People usually move on to other studios after 2 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean your house of all the "dead wood" in your organization and maybe your stock will gain some power. Hire a consulting company and FOLLOW their recommendations. Hire competent managers who know how to lead and not your friends or the friends of your cousin's dog walker.

    Depends on who you work for but in general - there are other studios where assts are more valued

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall company making big movies - lots of advantage to have an impact if you work in Prod, Dev, or Acquisitions

    ConsDepends on who you work for but assistants are expected to go above and beyond what they are compensated to do and not promoted accordingly via title change or financial incentive

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate Assistants at a level consistent with what other studios pay their employees - LG has a reputation for paying 15-20% below the rest of the industry which is unfortunate.

    Get in, get experience, then get out

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey are great about hiring peope right out of school.

    ConsThe pay is bad. HR is probably the most ineffective and overstaffed dept.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to inspire loyalty or a improve company morale, you need to increase the pay for all of the support staff and everyone with a title of Manager and below.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
