    I have been working at Pink Sneakers Productions as a contractor

    Pros

    Working in television, gaining experience.

    Cons

    Poor communication, favoritism, poor attitude among higher ups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all of your employees are on the same page and feel the same level of respect the staff does.

    Pros

    Rare opportunity in the area to work in broadcast tv that isn't news.
    Some vague promise of movement in the company...but be weary as almost everyone is freelance.

    Cons

    Terrible communication amongst people working on the same project, especially amongst those in charge of certain areas of production.
    Middle management are working on multiple projects do information that needs to be shared slips through the cracks.
    Very diorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are communicating what it is that you need and want to the people you need things fom and don't give conflicting instructions from that of other people in charge. Make sure you have come to a consensus before you give orders to your workers as it will make things move much more efficiently.

    Pros

    It's a casual work environment, you learn lots of different jobs at once, you might get a chance to be creative, and some show units get to travel.

    Cons

    If you're from another state, you will learn the hard way they take advantage of Florida being a "Right to Work" State. People will work 80-90 hours a week, which isn't uncommon for TV production when you're on a deadline, but they do not pay overtime because they sneak by the law requiring overtime if you're paid less than $455 a week by paying the lowest paid people $50 more than that. This is deliberately done so they won't have to pay overtime. Some people are paid daily what others make in a week, but everyone works the same amount of time, and have just as hard of a job. People work 30 days in a row (No exaggeration), Raises are not given, no benefits are offered at all, No paid Holidays, when you ask to go home at the end of your 10 hour work day (Yes you have to ask) you are scolded like a child for "not being passionate about the industry". You will get taken advantage of if you are not careful. Yes, it's freelance, and this can be the way it goes, but it's not a company winning any awards for being a good place to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people something to work towards (raises, at least on a yearly basis. If they're sticking with the company for that long loyalty and hard work should be rewarded), pay overtime if they're not being compensated fairly, give people a weekend off a month, and stop asking people to do 3 different jobs at once, or at least pay them fairly for it if you do!

    I worked at Pink Sneakers Productions

    Pros

    getting to work in reality television has it's ups when living in central florida, where there seems to be hardly an entertainment field at all

    Cons

    tv in general is tough. be prepared to sacrafice your life, nights, weekends, birthdays, and other major life events to spend it with the crew. it's not a job for everyone (or anyone with a spouse/significant other)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you work till midnight, and come in 30 minutes late the next morning with a starbucks because you only got 4 hours of sleep, try not to roll your eyes and be a little more understanding. we're all adults here, aren't we?
