    I worked at Classic Media full-time

    Pros

    You can work there for years because no one notices. Bonuses were good, though they may do away with them. There's really no HR department anymore, just a spy from DreamWorks (their new owners). So ascension can happen rapidly through sheer laziness of the managers who don't want to interview new people.

    Cons

    Really small office and everyone is packed like sardines. Company culture is non-existent so how much you enjoy your time there really depends on your team and your manager. Co-CEOs rarely speak to the company so feel blessed if they even look at you more than once a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like people and not sheeple.

    I have been working at Classic Media

    Pros

    Though not without its pressures and the usual corporate shenanigans, this is a fun and inspiring place to work. A lot of respect and communication between co-workers, people willing to listen and entertain new ideas, and high level of creativity. A very positive atmosphere--even if some people don't recognize how good it is until they go someplace else! Proud to have it on my résumé, and miss the atmosphere and corporate culture.

    Cons

    I understand a little chaos was introduced with management changes, but it seems to be stablizing and getting back on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep encouraging creative particpation at all levels; even the non-creatives there seem to have great ideas.

    Small company, not great pay, but great experience.

    I have been working at Classic Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A small company that gives you visibility not available in a larger company.

    Cons

    Pay is not great, somewhat dysfunctional corporate structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees more.
