    I worked at Little Airplane Productions as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Little Airplane places all of its focus on the content it produces. If you work there, you can be confident that you'll be part of a team that makes great work for children. The artists and technicians are wonderful people who come together for the sake of the work. The management takes its job very seriously, almost too seriously.

    Cons

    Little Airplane does not provide well for its employees. The salaries and benefits are low across the board. While the management honestly strives to maintain a healthy work/life balance, you will often be asked to work late or come in on weekends if you're working on a project with a deadline.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest systemic problem is with the structure of LAP. The head of the company is a creative person with no regard for budgets and schedules. No one is allowed to say no to this person, and the budgets are always tight. As a result, project scopes get out of control and schedules fall out of whack. As management tries to appease the CEO but squeeze its tight budget, the environment gets very stressful. To make it worse, there is an attempt to keep on a smiley face at all times with a culture that encourages a fake, plastic preschool happiness.
