    Current Employee - Transportation Coordinator in New York, NY

    I have been working at Sesame Workshop as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The learning experience, I learned most of what i know about the film and television industry and i went on to start a business with the education i received during my 5yrs with them...

    Cons

    funding for pbs and non-forprofits where hit hard by the morgatege bubble crissis and subsequent market crash which followed.. rendering the corporate structure of the workshop unable to asist in the fashion they are a custum to, essentialy translating into budget for production cuts and layoffs w/restructuring of staff and departments.. This was in 2011 and they have come back stronger for it...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "i wouldn't dare to mess with perfection."
