    Great office culture. Awesome work-life balance. Moving towards higher quality television.

    I worked at Entertainment One as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlike most of their competitors, eOne is growing because they cultivate culturally-relevant productions on realistic budgets, and then maximize each project's revenue potential by remaining committed, flexible and tenacious in their exploitation campaigns. They refuse to turn their backs on titles that fail to catch the public's attention upon initial release. They also leverage their competitive advantage by acquiring high-quality, low-priced IP assets that their conglomerate-media competitors lazily abandon.

    Cons

    Profit margins in film, TV and music IP are among the lowest across all media sectors, and are likely to remain razor thin for a very long time, which means compensation for production talent on each project will remain very modest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's get a geophysicist to survey the ground beneath your properties for a vein of gold or an oilfield.

    Pros

    Passionate, smart people that work there. Forward-thinking management trying their best to stay with the changing marketplace that is the entertainment distribution business.

    Cons

    Declining business (physical media distribution) -lack of proper partner relations as staff just tries to hit numbers and keep head above water in a declining business model.

    Pros

    Its a welcoming environment. The staff are really friendly and funny. The company is growing very quickly which could give a great opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    The office I was working in had some budget constraints imposed by head office. This combined with a slightly older demographic of workers makes for the office to not be able to try riskier innovative ideas.
