    Pros

    Everyone seems to be doing work that should be spread across several people. It's sometimes nice because you can expand your skills outside of your job description.

    Cons

    You are expected to handle tasks outside of your job description.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of what employees' jobs descriptions are and recognize when people are going above and beyond them.

    Pros

    You'll work with great people.

    Cons

    Very corporate environment and didn't always love working creatively under such a corporate umbrella. CNE hires too few employees so everyone is stretched thin. They keep a lot of people on perma-lance and don't pay them well enough, give benefits, give days off, etc. If you're on staff it's an okay job. If you aren't, it's not.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people because everyone is stretched way too thin.
