    Pros

    This company offered the opportunity to work with some of the top professionals in the Film/Video industry.

    Cons

    Terrible work place environment created by senior management. Management ineptitude resulted in a "Talent Refresh," the process of firing employees who challenged bad management decisions.

    Pros

    tv work in nj
    not much else

    Cons

    nepotism, no degree of any kind needed to work here.
    people with no digital video experience work as "compressionists"
    people who don't even know what "right click on your mouse" means work with computers
    no clear direction of where the company is headed
    people with real skills and qualifications get laid off while incompetence gets rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire people with actual skills. Stop hiring people with no video background as compressionists

    I worked at Ascent Media full-time

    Pros

    Meet some nice and helpful people

    Cons

    Management never care for staffs. super low bonus average of 2 weeks and increment average of $20. No matter how long you have work there, still will be sacked over minor mistake. All staffs are replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    If you dun take care of staffs, how you want them to work hard for you?

    Pros

    Nice employees, good benefits Clean working enviroment

    Cons

    Place is kind of clickish. Poor management. Doesn't want to be bothered with anything you tell them, bad attitudes. Fileroom clerk is not very friendly

    Advice to Management

    Get managers who will listen to you instead of pushing you away and telling you that they don't
    have time or do not want to be bothered with your ideas
