    Pros

    You're working in a fast paced environment, with numerous opportunities to learn new skills. And the supervisors are motivating, which in turn makes it a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    Working with this company during certain months can be overwhelming if you have a family. During peak seasons it's sometimes required to work 7 days a week, and some employees may have to work 12 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Hired if you can pass drug test and background check, was air conditioned and heated building where packaging was done.

    On your feet constantly and a lot of repetitive motion. Nobody allowed to leave building at lunch.

    Treat people like you would like to be treated yourself, and hire more permanent people.

    Pros

    no pros can be found, unless you are Caucasian. And very few than, unless you are in management.

    Cons

    Uses temporary staff to threaten full time employees jobs. Forces one to take a new position, will not pay you for that position. Will try to make you work both positions without compensation. A lot of hate between each staff member. Employees hate each other, especially if one gets a promotion. List is to long to continue!!!!

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits and great corporate culture in our business unit.

    Cons

    Leadership rewarded employees based on industry contact versus hard work. If the director told me to focus on schmoozing instead of taking on bigger and bigger workloads, I would have. Shame on me for thinking the gig was more than just a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you can cash in on those contacts when the time comes!

    Pros

    Good people to work with, the film and TV industry is fun and rewarding, and the clients are interesting and challenging. Interesting technical landscape.

    Cons

    Absentee management struggles to find direction and market the company's services, leverage strengths, and makes it clear that if they can outsource something, they can and will. Treats talent as an expenditure and not much more.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and commit to core business, align resources with said business, treat employees with the respect they deserve.
