    really not that great

    Performer (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    Prosgetting to see the country, making life long friends, performing as a kids celebrity and in venues one of your celebrities may have been

    Consthe pay is okay, paying for our hotels, management, they always go back on their contracts you sign with hidden rules, not enough time between shows, everything is one sided and we should be able to review management bc they are nit that great all the time

    Advice to Senior Managementget in touch with the people on the road and ask them how it really is going, this open door policy you do not follow, where is human resources?! every tour should run the same way!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If it suits you, it's great.

    Lead Craftsperson (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsVEE is full of good people who do interesting work. It's a fast paced and ever changing environment. If you're interested in a job that forces you to learn something new on a daily basis, this is a great place.

    ConsThere is a huge disconnect between the corporate offices and the other divisions. The work can be very stressful and there are not always the resources needed to complete the job.

    Great place to paint but employees aren't valued enough

    Scenic Painter (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsInteresting painting work, consistent seasonal work, interesting people, fun painting style, convenient location, some opportunity to learn other skills, yearly raises (not very big but existent)

    Consupper management acts holier than thou, employees are treated as if they are dispensable, they don't do a good job of recognizing employees unique skills and making use of them

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees more

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great if you love costumes, ok if you if not

    Costume Technician (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    Prosvery laid back and flexible schedule for contract/seasonal work, pays well, steady paycheck for a temporary time period, clean and organized workrooms.

    Consvery competitive atmosphere for those interested in the company's limited salary positions, management varies according to where you work, hard labor jobs that will take a toll on your well being.

    Advice to Senior Managementhead floor mgmt is impatient under stress, makes uncomfortable decisions for temporary employees very uncomfortable i.e. giving up your work hours to someone else who is a favorite of the management and who"needs the money more" when everyone needs that money or else they wouldn't be there. Negative feedback for projects should be done in private for the sake of being professional about your job but sometime this happens publicly due to the mgmt's lack of control.

    Great in the beginning

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsFun working with muppets. Possible promotion early on.

    ConsLow pay. Low employee morale. Upper management does not listen. Employees are expendable. Even though we work on a children's show, upper management doesn't like kids. Work life balance is frowned upon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to younger employees who are in touch with what kids like. Instead of pointing fingers and trying to find out who is to blame just figure out a solution. Reward employees with positive reinforcement. Pay employees what they are worth.

    Downtown Office

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsGood place to start off in a career, if you want to get into entertainment. People are friendly enough, and you do get to work with and build connections with other people in venues around the country. The location of the downtown office is in a GREAT!

    ConsPoor leadership, lack of vision, closed door meetings, office politics, over-worked employees, underpaid, and they do business like it's still in the 1980s. Most people make it 2 years and then burn out, because of the lack of recognition and low salary. Management likes perky, bubbly 20 year old college females. If you're over 30+ or a guy, good luck getting a job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou work in family entertainment, so have some fun around the office!! There is no point to dress professionally and have a stuffy office environment when you talk about Big Bird and Elmo all day on the phone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Starter Job, Limited Growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood experience for entry-level employees, travel opportunities for many positions, free tickets to shows the company produces, health insurance for full time employees

    ConsLimited salary increases as well as wage freezes and salary cuts in recent years, no room for growth past lower- to mid-management, no flexible work schedules or accommodations for work/life balance, senior management not interested in employee morale

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
