    Pros

    Excellent team. All super professional. Everyone worked very well with a common goal of producing the best TV possible

    Cons

    As a freelancer there were no paid sick, vacation or personal days. But that is common through out the industry and not a true "con".

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing talent in the office. The best leaders can often come from inside the company.

    Pros

    They care about their employees. They know how hard we work and reward us with free movie days, previews of never before seen TV series that are about to come out on television, lots of food catered, employee game/bowling nights, company fitness center, sweetest people I have ever worked with. There are also lots of opportunities to move up in the company. Hours are flexible. Benefits are great if you're full time.

    Cons

    The pay for part-time isn't horrible, but definitely not enough to support yourself if this is your only job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Y'all are awesome!
