    Great place to learn

    International Royalties (Former Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsI loved the people I worked with. Upper management was really friendly and willing to teach you. I always felt comfortable going in to ask questions. Very fun atmosphere with weekly showings of upcoming movies.

    ConsIt was hard to get to know interns/employees from other departments.

    Exciting group of people.

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsI was happy to be working with so many experienced people in the industry. I learned a lot during my tenure at the company.

    ConsI wasn't at the company long enough, but it seems to be a challenge to move up the ranks quickly.

    It was a great internship experience

    Internship (Former Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsThe people there are very accessible. Willing to teach interns and the work was very challenging

    ConsWish there were more standard training. The executives are very busy, so the training part could have been better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA great place to work for, I really like the environment there

    Entrepreneurial attitude required. You need to be the change you want to see in the company.

    Director (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsThey almost always promote from within, so there's continuous opportunity for vertical movement. Working in the film business can be fun; you can go to free movie screenings. Also, you learn a lot. The relatively smaller staff gives you the change to take on new responsibilities, so it's a great place to learn.

    ConsSince there is a smaller staff, the opportunity to learn a lot is tempered by the volume of work assigned to one person. More responsibility means more volume and higher expectations

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to cater your management style to the personality or demeanor of your direct reports. Yelling is effective for some people, others not so much.

    Great benefits! Fun place to work.

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsWinter break, fun small perks of working for entertainment

    ConsWorking long hours is a cultural thing. No one really needs to work as much as they do. A lot of time wasting here to appear like you are working.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees instead of acting like they are replaceable. Pay them a fair rate.

    Internship for the Television division of Lionsgate creative/programming team.

    Creative/Programming (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsThe staff is amazing. All are willing to bend over backwards to help you learn any and all aspects of the company. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere that is extremely efficient but it feels like everyone is your friend and not just co-worker.

    ConsThe only con is long hours at the office and off clock hours. However, the work that you are doing is very interesting so if you are interested in what their company does you will actually enjoy the long hours.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great experience, sometimes monotonous.

    TV Development Intern (Former Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    Pros- Very friendly and helpful employees that want you to succeed
    - Brush shoulders with very creative people on a daily basis
    - Great opportunity to develop a taste for writing style and format
    - Good intern community at the company

    Cons- Workload as a development intern can get monotonous (script coverage) but to be expected
    - Unpaid intern position, few perks beyond experience

    Advice to Senior ManagementInteract more with lower level employees. It is great to know you are there, but it would be nice to have more of a mentorship element

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Review from Intern (Los Angeles)

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    Pros+Very friendly and considerate managers. All about giving advice and helping interns understand the business---including scripted, unscripted, and finance.
    +A good size of interns (around 12) so you have a community as well.
    +Company is really gaining momentum after 'Hunger Games' great time to enter the company.

    Cons+Interns are unpaid, though this is true at many companies.
    +Can be intense, though this is Hollywood.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to break into

    International Business Intern (Former Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsGreat, relaxed environment. Many cool perks, since it's an entertainment company, such as film festivals, seeing celebrities, etc.

    ConsSometimes felt that my work wasn't very relevant, as they made me do lots of useless paperwork. The communication was lacking sometimes as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate better, communicate more

    Executives could put a bigger effort in relating with employees, but this is pretty typical of the movie industry.

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsFree screenings, good working environment, close to beach

    ConsSenior-level execs get all the spotlight

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to engage with employees more
