    I have been working at Endemol

    Pros

    Lots of really nice people, all competent and hard working. By and large they produce fun shows that you can be proud of.

    Cons

    Pressure is high, pay is only semi-competitive. Health care offering is pretty weak by entertainment union standards. Hours can be long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep developing great shows. I love pretty much every show I've worked on for this company. Would love to see budgets get a little bigger.

    I have been working at Endemol

    Pros

    Working in a creative environment in production; no day is ever the same; great fun working with productions and talk show guests

    Cons

    Your longevity in the company is based on whether or not people like you, not your actual work or performance; not to mention you work soul-sucking hours and have to deal with the gargantuan egos of people who are likely not even qualified to have the positions they hold but rather, they're just connected to the executive producers of the company or great at sucking up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop undervaluing employees
    Stop firing people based on clickish garbage like whether or not you "like them"
    Stop making people slave 12+ hours a day
