Current Employee - Production Assistant
Current Employee - Production Assistant
Approves of CEO

Pros

You are exposed to the latest trends in media, you are invited to hear performances from the hottest artists of today and you are part of a company who is leading the TV industry by setting trends.

Cons

Since this is such a big organization, it's very difficult to move up. Unless someone leaves, one could remain in an assistant/low level position for two years.

Advice to Management

Take a stronger role in managing freelance works. HR needs to be more involved and project based employees should be evaluated each year and considered for other jobs within the company once work is no longer available for them.
