    Pros

    The company has great people, who are motivated and passionate about their work. Although young and growing, the potential for the company's future is overwhelmingly positive.

    Cons

    The only issue is the communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    The management was great, and they constantly made an effort to understand the process of production. Maintaining the flow of communication will improve the company.

    Pros

    The office culture is probably the best benefit. The younger staff were given more opportunity to showcase their talent, because I feel that it would really take us to another level. I think the atmosphere makes it very easy to be here and want to show the company off to friends and clients.

    Cons

    The senior staff have very little interest in cultivating new talent. The older staff are out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Improve benefits and compensation, thus changing the morale.

    Pros

    Opportunity to dig in and get your hands into just about anything you're willing and work on all sides of the business. Accelerated career path for those with the drive and positive attitude. Exciting projects with world-class companies in tech, media, entertainment, and finance. Great people with good intentions.

    Pay is still in process of adjusting to market value, but getting there.

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Lots of opportunities to learn and be hands-on in projects. A good place to build up a reel to move onto other higher paying jobs.

    Cons

    Low compensation compared to the average in New York for Producers. No overtime pay. Young and immature office culture.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they're worth and you'll avoid the high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Creative talent, hard working individuals, interesting work with top notch clients.
    Some perks, Nice new office space.

    Cons

    Gross mismanagement, Unclear direction as a company, Chaotic top management which trickles down to unfocussed and difficult work environment. Almost secretive environment from CEO to exec team.

    Advice to Management

    Take more advice from the creative talent and consideration in to their career development.
    The head of Business Development is a retired gentleman living in Arizona - not ideal for a cohesive sales team.
