    I have been working at Bardel Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Meet cool people

    -Work on some cool shows

    -Decent first job opportunity

    Cons

    -Depending on which show you work on you may end up working a LOT of overtime and unfortunately it is all unpaid.

    -Low starting salary BUT if you work hard and stay for multiple contracts you can get some solid increases

    -Shows are often under-staffed causing people to work long hours in order to meet tight deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying to juggle so many shows, make sure the ones you have are staffed properly. Often times people don't want to take time off because you're still expected to fill quota and depending on the episode it can be hard on your team. This will also help prevent all the unpaid overtime and feeling of overwork.
