    Average management; good culture

    Production Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsClearly a leader in the industry, with good technological resources and an eye for innovation. Seems like they care about their employees.

    ConsTends to be a bit too bureaucratic. I was in the Los Angeles office and found it very difficult to get certain things approved or moved forward with enormous delays and multiple layers of decision-makers involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstall a clearer sense of how performance management is done.

    producer

    Producer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIf you are young and willing to work for a very low salary this is a great place to start out.
    Great upper west side location. A lot of nice people work at ABC

    ConsThe company is constantly cutting back costs. They make it very difficult to produce a show.
    Most union employees are being forced out and are being replaced by employees with little or no experience. The general climate is depressing ( constant fear of layoffs)

    Advice to Senior ManagementEveryone in the company can't be freelance. Sometimes you need to pay a little more to get top quality employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
