    I worked at Shakespeare and as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    S & Co produces great contemporary and classical theater. They have a generally positive and glowing reputation in the area, and are featured in national news outlets. "Free" housing during your summer or fall production contracts. The pay is slightly above average for summer stock in the US.
    (Quotes around "Free" because they supposedly take $100 out of your weekly pay to compensate for housing, however, this is not explicitly stated anywhere. Your contract will just say free housing and your weekly pay)

    Cons

    The majority of my coworkers were very dramatic and gossipy. Lots of nepotism, drama, weird dynamics within the company (spouses, significant other, exes, parent/child). A dozen of individuals keep getting hired year after year even if they are difficult to work with due to nepotism. "Difficult" meaning any combination of the following qualities: alcoholic, rude, disrespectful, unskilled/unqualified at job, unable to meet deadlines, verbally abusive, prima-donna complex, and/or not a team player

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring ineffective/unqualified individuals due to nepotism.
