    I worked at Powderhouse Productions

    Pros

    Basically, this company is willing to let anyone play producer, as long as they're cheap enough.

    Cons

    There's nobody to learn from, as everyone has their training wheels on. Titles are handed out unearned. I think the delivery guy might have been credited as a producer on a few shows!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experience matters- not just cheap labor!

    Pros

    This is really creative, exciting place. Growing fast, doing really cool work. Only place like it in New England. If you want to make interesting television, this is really the place to do it.

    Cons

    Deadlines can be intense, at times things are a bit chaotic. Hours can be long, production schedules at times a bit brutal. But I don't think its much different anywhere else in this field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I'd ask them communicate more regularly and consistently. Let us know what's going on. Perhaps a newsletter or a weekly email. Also, remember how hard people work around here. Show us your appreciation. A little pat on the back goes a long way.
