    I worked at Cartoon Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They had some cool studio events with some nice perks.

    Cons

    There were a lot of ego's, especially with the creators and execs. A lot of clique's, no real mixing of crews. Was sexually harassed and was told instead of bringing it to HR to talk it out with the accuser and was made even more uncomfortable. (This issue never got resolved) They completely cut ties with me after my last day. I continue to reach out for possible opportunities and all I get are crickets. My exit interview was also extremely terrible. They didn't even try to ask me what I thought of my experience. The whole thing took less than 5 mins. I was told once you're in CN, it's gonna be hard to leave cause they'll keep offering you more jobs. (That's a big fat lie)
