I worked at MadDash E-Media (More than 5 years)
Willing to give less experienced employees a chance
Close knit, small company
Stable..almost 20 years in business...proven track record
From what I'm told, they now produce more creative, higher end projects and less of their early year's employment videos (which were more productized)
Collaborative for the right person. You have to want to work hard and contribute.
Struggle with former freelancers who they've hired and are only there to build their personal portfolio, not be part of the team.
Can hire too young, which affects overall work ethic and professionalism
Protective of the client and deliverable, to a fault
Advice to Management
Keep a good balance between experienced production folks and some newbies.
Continue to invest in good equipment
Keep focus on business fundamentals. Don't turn into a creative house that ONLY cares about creative. Keep a balance and run a smart business. Stability leads to creativity.
