    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Bardel Entertainment as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A variety of shows to work on, and many incredible artists to befriend!

    Cons

    Disconnect from management to the workers, outrageous amount of unpaid overtime to meet unrealistic deadlines, and everyone is crammed together. Keep higher ups protected from harassment claims by "low level" individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop underbidding on shows and be sure to have the work force needed/space to actually do the show. Also to no longer pay with quota.


  2. "Very good experience"
