    I worked at Animoto for less than a year

    Pros

    The progressive, collaborative atmosphere creates a wonderful learning environment. The emphasis on work-life balance is unparalleled, and senior management is extremely accessible and willing to talk to even interns about goals of the company and career aspirations.

    Cons

    At the time I worked there, the company was undergoing changes in senior management, so the goals sometimes felt a little ambiguous. But now, it seems as though the company has a defined sense of where it wants to go--very exciting and positive

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be accessible to all employees!

    Pros

    The senior leadership is very open to explaining what the company's goals are, and making sure everyone, right down to the interns, understands their purpose and importance. Like many other places, Animoto has the fun parties and free food, but beyond that, the company really has a great sense of culture that goes beyond anything material. People want to hang out with you after work and actually be friends, and they're...

    Cons

    Some of the work for interns was a bit of mindless excel data entry. That said, you really need to make your own opportunities and ask for more interesting work if you want it, or ask to be part of the other teams. The other people working there are definitely open to helping you out in any way they can.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to pivot to cater to small business marketing videos, it seems unlikely to create a cookie-cutter process for that unless you really focus on incorporating custom branding. Each business is unique and the branding of a video should permeate through the entire video, not just the post-roll.

    Pros

    Animoto really likes their interns to get involved with the work that they do, so expect to work and learn a lot from them. They're great with interns and the company is really small, meaning you get to know the people you work with. Expect to learn and work with different departments since all departments overlap at some point or another. Also, this company really knows has a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Don't expect an offer after your internship

    Advice to Management

    Maybe have a structured program for interns.
