An attitude of you're lucky to work for them

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsHigh quality of work
Good name recognition

Conslow pay, little chance for advancement
disconnect between artistic and production
feeling that production departments are significantly less valued/see as less professional than administrative and artistic roles.

Advice to Senior Managementyes, it's good to be employed if you work in the arts, but it doesn't give you an excuse to treat your employees like they have no choices.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
