    I have been working at Cineflix Productions full-time

    Pros

    Cineflix has a good history of quality shows and a strong legacy to build upon. Kind working environment with a fair and friendly culture.

    Cons

    There are some broken aspects in the internal structure of the organization that slows things down and make it tough to move new projects forward, which makes it hard for teams to succeed in a fast-paced market.

    Advice to Management

    In the future, focus on personality and management style synergy in hiring across the company to minimize delays and unnecessary conflict.

    I worked at Cineflix Productions full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers and teams were some of the best people I have ever worked with professionally.

    Cons

    There is little to no room for advancement. Management does not take an interest in its employees treating them more like a disposable asset than valued members of a team.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time and money on retaining talent that is loyal and wants to advance your company!!!

    I worked at Cineflix Productions as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    They have had a change at the executive level and it has hurt moral

    I worked at Cineflix Productions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great workspace, lots of people you'll meet again and again in the industry. If a manager likes you, you're sure to get hired again on another contract. New shows and pilots are always developing so there's plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    Had a very rough experience with a manager on a power trip. Made my life there a living hell but would do it in private so it was difficult to report. Would then go on to bad mouth employees to an Executive, blaming others for things that went wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you're hiring. "Friend favorites" are hired back when they have no idea how to manage a team.

    I worked at Cineflix Productions as an intern

    Pros

    Good Atmosphere and a good company to learn the ins and outs of the television industry. Great area to work in, and flexible hours.

    Cons

    I found that I wasn't always very busy, depending on what part of my internship I was on. It felt like a lot of very last minute

    I worked at Cineflix Productions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great support staff and production teams. It's a really fun group to be around. The social element is great and dogs are allowed in the office which is fun.

    Cons

    Terrible HR, management. Too many execs who are all clueless about anything. The managers really don't care about the staff, and the owners are clueless about what's going on.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half the execs and hire more people who do actual work. Support the staff you have and stop creating a toxic environment.

    I worked at Cineflix Productions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people who work here full time are nice, accessible, and create a warm atmosphere to work in. I found them to be professional and open minded. They tend to hire professional crews.

    Cons

    On some shows the upper management has been on for years and no longer know, or are open, to making things better. There can be a lot of "this is how we're doing it because this is how we've always done it".

    Advice to Management

    Don't let some of the staff who have been on shows there forever be too closed minded to doing things in new ways. If some of the Producers have been on the same show for years they may have forgotten how to solve problems in new ways.

    Their a well established production company that produces quality programming for US, Canadian and the international market. Good people.

    Translating developed concepts to a oiled production machine can be challenging. Sometimes their schedules can be a bit overly aggressive.
