Pros

Wonderful location. If you get in a good department with good people you will enjoy yourself for a while.

Cons

Capitalism at it's finest. Upper management doesn't care about anything but themselves. They are constantly giving each other praises and bonuses while pay raises and promotions take years to get through the pipeline

Advice to Management

Stop greasing your pockets and make a good movie and share the wealth. You aren't really worth 66 assistant's salaries.

  1. A stepping-stone company...not a career.

    Pros

    You can gain a lot of experience at Lionsgate.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity to grow and the longer you work, the less you are rewarded and the more you are pigeon-holed in to your duties.

    Advice to Management

    Too much to mention in a short review...

    Learn as much as you can and move on to other places that value you and pay you well.

    Pros

    Lionsgate is a good place to start and learn the business. You get hands on experience with many facets of the business. Depending on department, you can modify your work hours and you can work from home if you're trusted by your supervisor. You can make good connections for your career. It looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Upper management has no respect for people under them. Pay is really lousy and by now about 50% below what everybody pays. Promotions and advancement is based on who you know and not how you work. The whole management of the company is complete chaos to hide people with VP titles that produce absolutely nothing. Nepotism is live and well here. Positions that become vacant are not replaced and instead the work load is distributed among people in the same department or to other departments. HR is completely inefficient and enlarges only their own department. People usually move on to other studios after 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Clean your house of all the "dead wood" in your organization and maybe your stock will gain some power. Hire a consulting company and FOLLOW their recommendations. Hire competent managers who know how to lead and not your friends or the friends of your cousin's dog walker.
