    Fantastic People, Fantastic Part Time Work - Kept me Growing

    Production Assistant/Runner (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsSomething new every day, love to meet the crews from the tours that come in, FANTASTIC in-house production team, lots to learn but everyone loves to help

    ConsWork days can last up to 17-20 hours, and you need to mentally prepare for that. The pay is higher than minimum, but it's still very little at the end of the day.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Customer-focused and quality-conscience

    Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee) West Hollywood, CA

    ProsCommitted to developing and providing high quality applications designed with end users in mind; great work-life balance fostered by management from the top down; flexible work hours with work-from-home opportunities; teamwork and a collaborative work environment aren't just talked about, they're embraced and expected

    ConsTraffic in and around Hollywood can be dreadful at times; have to continually attempt to overcome an often very negative public perception (e.g. high/unnecessary service fees)

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up - keep focusing on the customer and on your employees and they'll continue to take care of you in return.

    Great experience, lots of responsibility for an intern

    Music Sponsorship Intern (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsBosses gave me a good amount of responsibility, wasn't just running around getting coffee. Towards the end of my internship I was given the opportunity to run point at two concerts, essentially I was the person in charge. You really get to learn a lot about all of the different aspects of what it takes to get a concert up and running!

    ConsYou are working outside in the middle of the summer, so it does get a little hot at times. Just be prepared for that!

    Great Place For Employment

    Product Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDefinitely a great place to build a foundation in the industry, amazing growth potential and a fabulous work environment to work in.
