    Pros

    Very relaxed boss, relaxed work environment, lots of other interns your age, easy interview process

    Cons

    Definitely doing "intern work" -- running errands (all the time), people will bring a box over to your desk and ask you to take it up front for them because they can't walk up to the front themselves. Unpaid, but you have to be getting class credit for the internship, so you are basically paying to work there.

    Pros

    The best people work here. Everyone is so friendly and you get to work a lot of awesome events and sometimes even film premieres.

    Cons

    The only thing that would make it better was if it was paid

    I worked at Allied Integrated Marketing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible to schedule
    Free swag
    Typically similarly aged (college) interns & colleagues

    Cons

    A lot of it was not quite much of a learning experience as an intern. Basically go to location XYZ, give out free swag. The one thing I learned was how to cold-call. Hated it personally, but it was good to be able to know how to do that.

    I worked at Allied Integrated Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You get to see free movies before they come out

    Cons

    - Zero work/life balance (you always get home late!)
    - Account executives are always competing for power against each other
    - Terrible pay

    - Company does not value employees
    - Have to work advance screenings weekly: you get home really late
    - Stressful environment

    - Reward employees for working hard/long hours
    - Can definitely improve on working from home (there is no such thing)

    I have been working at Allied Integrated Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Get to see movies before they are released in theaters
    - Get to interact with actors/actresses/directors
    - Get to build relationships with local press
    - Get to build relationships with Film Studios

    Cons

    - Work Life Balance is terrible. Non-existent
    - overworked
    - underpaid
    - no training on the job (employees are thrown in)
    - management need training on how to treat employees and coworkers (very toxic environment: gossipy, Backstabbing, etc.)
    - No HR (so no one to file complaints to; or follow-up on payroll/benefits)
    - No concept of Team (if you are a team player this is not your environment)
    - Work environment is very individualistic (every person out for themselves)
    - no opportunity for upward mobility (unless someone resigns)
    - no opportunity for competitive wage
    - You will work nights and weekends (regularly)
    - EXTREMELY high turnover (most ppl stay 1yr)
    - EXTREMELY small staff

    Because this is an entertainment job - so some of the above come with the territory. However Allied is not in fact an entertainment brand such as Disney, Universal or Fox. Allied is a marketing agency. As an independent agency with a strong name in film - there should be more work/life balance, more staff on accounts, maybe even an office assistant to help with daily in-office needs.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps break-up the task. Have a specific team manage publicity, a specific team manage screenings, a specific team manage all outreach,
    A specific team manage office duties (inclusive of the intern program). Increase staff - develop a more team environment.

    By team I mean more than 1-2 people. By team I mean - something similar to a department that focuses on and manages that specific topic for the office.

    Pros

    Great environment full of fun people, mostly young, who are always up to date with the latest movies, trends, and entertainment media. Fun to talk to.

    Cons

    Work got repetitive after a few weeks. Learned skills at the beginning but not a huge learning curve after a month or so in.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the interns more, we really like talking with all of you! It would make our experience a lot more fun
