    I have been working at Lionsgate part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An incredibly responsive IT department gives you quick and effective access to the tools you'll need to excel in your workspace. The building is a comfortable space to be in in a physical sense, and all of the employees here seem more or less satisfied with their jobs here. Further, the company is experiencing growth in a number of departments, which means that there is always "extra credit" to accomplish if you want to stand out and climb the ladder, so-to-speak.

    Cons

    The employee parking in the back of the building is a 5-10 minute walk from the doors depending on how much you hustle, so you have to make sure you keep that in mind when planning an arrival time. Some of the bigger players are real "old Hollywood" types and can be abrasive.

    Advice to Management

    Install a back door to the gated parking area.

    I worked at Lionsgate part-time

    Pros

    Laid back, nice views, occasionally free food and snacks, ‘big name’,

    Cons

    Don’t treat their employees at the bottom with much respect if any. They are incredibly dismissive of entry level workers and a lot of people are quite snooty and rude

    Advice to Management

    Pay your entry level assistants more and provide free snacks more

    Pros

    Great people. Summer Fridays where employees get to leave at 1pm. Employee screenings of company film slate. HR tries to implement new and exciting programs for employees including Aveda massages, health fairs, field day, mixers, mentor program, sports teams etc

    Cons

    Low pay for assistant and coordinator level positions which are all capped at the same rate regardless of experience. Limited potential for growth. Really hard to get promoted at all career levels. The whole company seems overworked and underpaid. It is completely unorganized internally. If they would only hire more people they could probably fix things. There is an INCREDIBLY high turnover rate for assistants. Most leave after a year. Don't waste your time here - work an entry level position at any other major studio for double the pay! If you are looking at manager/director level positions or above its just as bad. You can find most departments coming in on the weekends to try and catch up on work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so your company can function and departments have a realistic and manageable workload.
