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

    Pros

    -Some fun and interesting shows
    -Cool people to work with
    -Easy entry for recent graduates

    Cons

    -High quotas due to under-staffing from under-bidding shows/clients having unrealistic expectations
    -Little to no OT pay
    -Almost everyone is either already or is quickly becoming fed up/tired of all the work a little to no compensation (we occasionally get OT meals but we have to stay until 7:30/8PM to recieve them)
    -Little to no communication from HR when transitioning off shows

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bardel Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Meet cool people working there

    Cons

    -No OT Pay, and OT is expected because quotas are so high
    -Some of the people in management are the most petty, passive aggressive, and immature people I have ever met. They are straight up rude and try to guilt trip you when you quit.
    -Even if someone is reported to HR, they won't fire them or do anything about them because they're so desperate for staff because the turnover rate is so crazy fast

    Advice to Management

    start caring about your staff
