    I have been working at Bardel Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Ample opportunity to work on many diverse, fun projects with big name companies.
    -Engaging and personable immediate leadership. (Leads/Supervisors)
    -Willing to teach
    -Amicable atmosphere on floor with artists
    -Studio located in a great location (Kelowna)

    Cons

    -Mismanaged production schedules put considerable pressure and stresses on artists.
    -Tight production schedules doesn't leave room for artists to practice, learn and grow.
    -Miscommunications on past projects between production and artists/leads/supervisors lead to negativity. However, Bardel has learned from those missteps and seems to be doing better.

    Advice to Management

    -Be Transparent
    -Fight for the artists
    -Work with us from the trenches, your example speaks volumes.
    -Be realistically optimistic. You don't have to be smiling all the time, but be realistic about the situation while optimistically seeking solutions.

    I worked at Bardel Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co workers and team mentality, fun team building exercises and fun shows!

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be difficulty gaining insight into new projects and what the future holds. Lots of poor communication and overwhelmed people in management roles.

    Advice to Management

    Organize better and be more transparent with artists and production. Be more accessible to those looking to inquire about general contracts, more professional discussion and emails that articulate the needs of managment and try to accommodate artists.
