    Pros

    The snacks are good, some of the producers and staff are extremely talented. They pay on time -- actually a way faster turnaround than most...

    Cons

    ...but the day rates are 30-40% less than market at other corporate media companies. This is unacceptable, especially since in some cases the people doing the hiring are specifically looking to include women and others who are often underpaid in the market. Producers and editors are overwrought and seem like they would rather be elsewhere. Management seems less on top of their game than the people doing the day... to day work. Timelines and deadlines seem to change daily, and your workflow will be affected negatively. One day you will be literally sitting there in the office with nothing to do, or you're proactively asking for things critical to the work that you are doing that were not provided. The next morning you'll walk in and be expected to deliver on an impossible deadline, only possible if nothing goes wrong. And something always goes wrong. You will always feel like an outsider, and when your gig is done, you will get no feedback nor replies to emails, even if you were given nothing but positive feedback about your work on site. Oh, and you will actually overhear management insulting freelancers (often when they are on their lunch breaks, which they are not encouraged to take) to other management. Or even to other freelancers. Super unprofessional.
