Pros

It's an amazing company to work for in the grand scheme of career path and growth and a great place to find opportunity to gain experience and knowledge of the industry.

Cons

Just like most large companies, senior level positions (VP's and higher) are a revolving door and office politics is abundant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If the senior level positions could ground themselves and remain consistent it may work for the better in the long run.

    Pros

    work with some of the best known TV shows

    Cons

    Depends on the department, and your supervisor, but I worked CRAZY long hours and was always under a ton of stress. Know other people that had a great life work balance though.
