    I worked at Cartoon Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have never had a more creatively satisfying experience in my professional career. I hope to work for them again.

    Cons

    The only con I could mention is that I felt the program I was working on did not get a fair chance to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep producing creator based productions made by brilliant funny open minded people. I am proud to have been a part of your company.

    I worked at Cartoon Network full-time

    Pros

    Aside from one coworker, I loved everybody there. They're a wonderful group of friends and I hope to work with them again in the future.

    Cons

    I just about ran screaming from this place due to the harassment I was experiencing from my show's storyboard supervisor. I'll try not to get into too much detail but he was extremely handsy with both my shoulders and hips and would constantly wink in my direction. On more than a few occasions while I was standing he would pretend to 'squeeze by' me so he could graze his gross pasty white open palm across my butt 'accidentally.' I never once considered coming forward or calling him out in public because he is extremely well liked among the rest of the crew. I feared that if it ever came down to the two of us I would be the one exiled and fired and I believe he knew that too. The most I can realistically hope for is that I was the only victim. One thing is for sure - I won't ever again go anywhere near a project with his name on it.

    To the other women out there - Please don't let my story discourage you from applying. All in all it was still a great job and I've heard better things from friends on the other projects.

    Advice to Management

    With all the recent changes and heightened awareness of sexual misconduct it's a pity some of us could still feel so unsafe. But I know you do your best and I don't hold any qualms about any of you.

    I worked at Cartoon Network full-time

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy, fun, bright people, lots of talent in the building.

    Cons

    After a long time working for a hit show with excellent personal contributions, was not offered any raise in pay when my contract was up for renewal. Most of the creative staff is in their 20s and largely inexperienced (but still very talented). But when they get some experience they tended to leave for better paying jobs.

    Pros

    Great environment, great community, supportive staff, great benefits.

    Cons

    Lacking transparency, common for employees to be handling the work of multiple people for no extra pay, lacking organization/clarity of process for day-to-day.

    Advice to Management

    Value and promote the people you have.

    -great shows
    -lots of office snacks (there is a pancake making machine and icee machine for starters)
    -relaxed environment

    Cons

    nothing comes to mind...this place is a much better experience than the majority of tv animation studios.

    Advice to Management

    I hope they make efforts to retain talent when projects end and be receptive to assisting artists with visas.
