Disappointing.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGreat name for your resume. The food in the cafeteria is pretty good. Great project to work on. Down to earth younger staff.

ConsInbred hiring. Terrible pay for the freelancers who keep the wheel turning. Not very creative environment. Lot's of arrogant old producers, who think they are celebrities.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay people fair wages. Scrimping on basic supplies is uneccessary. Eliminate some of the red tape as it affects efficiency of process.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Great benefits package, and not to much stress on employees.… Cons: Not alot of career advancement. Advice to Senior Management: Chain of command thinking is a little out of control. More
