I worked at Weta as an intern

Pros

Some of the pros of working at WETA are that the staff was very helpful and friendly. I never felt intimidated going to my internship

Cons

It got a little boring after a while because I usually did the same thing all the time. I woud sit at my cubicle and work on the same type of powerpoint all the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give interns more fun things to do. Maybe have a day where they specifically work with a different department.

    Pros

    Associating with a superior product feels good, and people in the area (over age 30) will know of your presence in the media community.

    Cons

    Very few management possibilities exist because those who occupy the very few management positions protect their jobs from intrusion. It creates a "inside" political structure that can get vicious, and is certainly unrewarding to those who focus on doing their jobs well. You are likely to be most rewarded if you protect your bosses back, even if that means doing nothing else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A house cleaning might work well for you... move out those who are simply protecting their turf, and move in those who seem to actually want to accomplish something.

    Pros

    * Collegial atmosphere, mutually supportive and cooperative
    * Civility a hallmark of personal and professional interactions
    * Clear direction and relevant, useful feedback from management
    * Appropriate delegation
    * Resources available when required to complete assignments

    Cons

    * Career advancement slow or non-existent
    * Salaries low compared to for-profit companies
    * Ratio of managers to worker bees upside down
    * Preponderance of males in positions of authority, females in subordinate positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is very little fat in lower paid staff positions, but a great deal in higher paid management positions. Recommend review and consolidation of management responsibilities.
