    Pros

    Great place to work. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Cons

    No freebies except coffee. Lunch had to be paid for but luckily wasn't too expensive. The proximity to the farmers market also helped provide alternatives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Maybe offer some free lunch options.


  2. Good place for someone who settles.

    Pros

    Great benefits, including 401k, health insurance. Good location, near restaurants/bars. Lots of friendly people working there. You can learn a lot about the tv industry in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth unless someone croaks or moves to a different company. Slow to respond to current trends. Not willing to pay to keep loyal workers.

    Advice to Management

    Better lines of communication between the departments would increase productivity and overall morale. Nothing worse than getting yelled at for not knowing something, that was kept a secret, but ends up on Deadline.

    Pros

    Everyone treated me with respect and kindness. It was a thrilling experience.

    Cons

    You just wish it was full time. Everything else was great.

    Advice to Management

    I think using freelance writers from outside of television is a smart thing to do. Keep doing it!

    Corporate culture counts, if you don't value your employees your company will not survive.

    Pros

    It brought me an enormous experience in prepping stars and guest at a very short time frame. Creating challenging looks and transformation on guest that earned my make-up team an Emmy for best Make-Up for the Tyra Banks Show.

    Cons

    Communication was not always clear for everyone. Which created tension for some. But this is pretty normal in Television. Things change on a dime.

    Pros

    The people I work with are great people which makes it easy to come to work and get through the day.

    Cons

    Advancement is based on loyalty and who you know not who is most competent and does the best job. Compared to other studios we have the benefits. The HR department is the worst and they make it almost impossible for employees to transfer into other departments.
