    Pros

    It had a great culture, mostly fostered by the former CEO.

    Cons

    Had an identity crisis - and was sold to several other companies...leaving the employees lost.

    Pros

    This company offered the opportunity to work with some of the top professionals in the Film/Video industry.

    Cons

    Terrible work place environment created by senior management. Management ineptitude resulted in a "Talent Refresh," the process of firing employees who challenged bad management decisions.
