    Pros

    Lots of friends and activities. Everyone works hard. If you are good you stay.

    Boys club on the executive side. Parking can be an issue.

    I worked at 3 Ball Productions as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    they have a nice balcony area outside the kitchen - of course everyone is too busy working 14 hour days to use it, but the building - while heniously overcrowded - is nice and clean

    Cons

    Nasty management. The project I was on was staffed with people who did not have the qualifications to do their job - so in addition to an impossible calendar, I did my assistants job and another person's job because it was easier than fixing the mistakes. Before adopting this position I did try and communicate to the management. They already knew and bullied me not to 'rock the boat'. Bottom feeder company if you can avoid it don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the people I met while on your crew were unhappy. If you hire good senior people and low ball their rate, at least give them assistants that have the experience and skillset necesseary to be helpful in their position.


  9. "Some good people but far drive"

    Pros

    As with most production companies many of the staff are freelance but most of them return quite often because it's close to where they live or because they know someone who works there and they get hired back. The people who return to work there are very cool. One guy who is a casting producer has his staff eat lunch together every Friday. Very good for morale. The compensation seems to be standard for the industry. Do your job well, have a good attitude and you will get asked back.

    Cons

    If you don't live in the south bay or westside the drive is hell. Don't expect to have a life. Typical work hours are 10AM to 7PM. Traffic is still bad no matter what. There are 2 kitchens located at the office but expect the minimum. Soda, water, coffee, tea.

    I worked at 3 Ball Productions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They produce a lot of reality shows for television so there's a great opportunity to work on good shows.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. There are no benefits or perks.

    Advice to Management

    The executives don't really interact with the rest of the workers. They should get to know their employees a little better.
