Decent place to work, but nothing extraordinary compared to other studios.

Pros

Good people, good environment to be creative. One of the only studios in New York, so there's not much competition for employment

Cons

Can be difficult to understand some of senior management's decisions. Work is either feast or famine, which can create long periods of stress.

Advice to Management

While is it desirable to be a filmmaker friendly studio, marketing is a specialized division that doesn't always need extra opinions from the filmmakers.

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with. Everyone had big ideas and worked well as a team
    Good benefits ... friday lunches, holiday parties, etc.
    I felt like a real part of the team

    Cons

    The investors don't know what they want to do with the company. The seem resigned to 'milk the library' and even some of the new content is not enough. it's hard to be part of an organization with no clear vision

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the future - get real about investing in new content or move on already to something else!
