    I worked at Lionsgate full-time

    Pros

    Good people, and a sense of "innovation" in the work

    Cons

    As it turns out, the "innovation" is mostly lip service. The smart purchase of STARZ has done little to help the company, because they still operate like two companies. While other tech companies have successfully entered the entertainment and streaming space, Lionsgate still doesn't offer anything to differentiate themselves from other studios, thus see themselves falling behind. The sense of uncertainty about the future was constant, and that was before COVID shut down the theaters. Pay was below entertainment industry standards, and available resources & budgets were often the same.

    I have been working at Lionsgate full-time

    Pros

    All about doing things different but it's definitely encouraged to speak up, even as an assistant.

    I worked at Lionsgate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great coworkers and Summer Fridays/Holidays off

    Cons

    HORRIBLE pay for entry level workers, and absolutely no regard for their growth. There is no rhyme or rhythm to what they do here. They waste tons of money on Teslas for directors and cameos for talent and "consultants to improve culture" when in reality they need to just increase salaries MODESTLY to be competitive.
