    I worked at Lionsgate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lionsgate is a very casual environment which is appealing. The people understand and are all working for the betterment of the studio. Individuals are extremely passionate about the work they do and there is a 'family' focus from HR which is so important to us as employees. Love bagel fridays!

    Cons

    Compensation is a problem here, offers are way below standard industry rate. Long hours for my group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    discuss compensation, work/life balance, and work enjoyment. DO MORE for the employees!

    I loved the people I worked with. Upper management was really friendly and willing to teach you. I always felt comfortable going in to ask questions. Very fun atmosphere with weekly showings of upcoming movies.

    Cons

    It was hard to get to know interns/employees from other departments.

    I worked at Lionsgate as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very casual environment, gave a lot of effort to get people to understand the innerworkings of a the industry. Many people very interested in getting to talk to the interns and helping them understand. Free screenings!

    Cons

    Unpaid, sometimes had to rely on your own interest to find things to do. Seemingly long hours for an unpaid internship. Some people were very unhelpful in talking to interns - looked down on us

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was only visible when they came for big meetings. Maybe have a way to get interns to interact with them? (unless this has changed)

    Wish there were more standard training. The executives are very busy, so the training part could have been better.

    Entrepreneurial attitude required. You need to be the change you want to see in the company.

    I have been working at Lionsgate full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They almost always promote from within, so there's continuous opportunity for vertical movement. Working in the film business can be fun; you can go to free movie screenings. Also, you learn a lot. The relatively smaller staff gives you the change to take on new responsibilities, so it's a great place to learn.

    Cons

    Since there is a smaller staff, the opportunity to learn a lot is tempered by the volume of work assigned to one person. More responsibility means more volume and higher expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to cater your management style to the personality or demeanor of your direct reports. Yelling is effective for some people, others not so much.
