  1. "Great place to work- very nice artists, but don't expect to getting too much hands-on experience"

    I worked at Cutters as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with, interns are treated like actual human beings. One of only two Chicago post-houses that pays interns. Decent work hours (9-6), beautiful office, nice area of Chicago, great extra-curricular events, and overall (again) nice people. Opportunity to enter MoFilm contest with the help of senior artists and use of Cutters equipment.

    Cons

    Due to the large amount of clients (thats good!) that come through, and the fact that breakfast and mid-afternoon snack are prepared everyday, interns don't have much time to get hands on experience besides the MoFilm project and occasional on-set assisting with Dictionary shoots.

    Advice to Management

    Try to allow interns to get more time with the artists and sit-in on client sessions or help with simple tasks.

    Pros

    The People. Management pushes their Assistants and Junior Editors to build a strong portfolio and make Editor. They understand the value of a creative workforce and create an environment that fosters that creativity.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is tough but no different than any other gig in advertising. There is no paid OT but they do their best to give you the time back in paid comp days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing
