    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AwesomenessTV full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The fun parties, free lunches, and vibrant environment.

    Cons

    The leadership, lack of direction, power domination of upper management to keep people work long hours for ridiculous pay, lack of career advancement, and the continued hostile work environment for freelancers. What a Ponzi scheme.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat people like they're your slaves. Pay fairly, speak to people with respect, provide an environment for advancement, and don't be cheap. Cheap is not quality. Quality is what sells and provides career longevity. Perhaps the investment would have been better spent on your people and your product rather than your expensive building and top corporate salaries.
