    Pros

    I they don't know you they might hire you at minimum wage... if you work 15hour days .

    Cons

    They're terribly mismanaged. If you sign up for a 401k make sure you keep track of your account and the date you become vested...and watch your payroll checks , vacation hours, and the like.

    Former Employee - Studio Intern in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Terry Hines and Associates as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to see movie screenings before they come out in theaters. You get to keep fun promotional items that the production studios send out. You get to attend pre-screening promotional events. The building is close to BART at the Montgomery Station. Fabulous lunch places around the area.

    Cons

    Leadership is very hierarchy. The culture and atmosphere is sometimes unsettling. They do not pay for parking or have a parking garage. They do not encourage all the employees to meet one another, or introduce themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more side-by-side leadership, so that interns and recently hired coordinators have room to grow and learn. Make everyone feel like they are a part of the team in a more suitable and comfortable environment, instead of singling out employees and make them feel unworthy.

    Former Employee - Intern in Burbank, CA

    I worked at Terry Hines and Associates

    Pros

    Great company to learn the basics of publicity and promotions. You can get red carpet experience and learn the basics of what the entertainment PR industry is like.

    Cons

    Work can be slow and you have to constantly ask for tasks. Street teaming can be a hassle sometimes as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to put yourself out there and get to know who works/what they do. By going to events and making yourself known, networking shouldn't be an issue.

    I worked at Terry Hines and Associates

    Pros

    Flexible and fun work environment, great position to gain entry level experience, the film industry is fast paced and exciting.

    Cons

    The interns were responsible for updating and expanding a database which was tedious but necessary for the company to operate. It took months to receive pay checks but I did eventually receive full payment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The internship experience is much more valuable with open communication about how our efforts advance the mission of the business. Its motivating to know how we fit into the bigger picture of the business.
