    Pros

    Nice, laid back atmosphere. Friendly group of people to work with.

    It all depends on who you work for and the people I worked for were fantastic. Total dream job.

    I worked at Lionsgate full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Department was packed with new projects. People were very friendly. If you can find a way to add value to your position, you can move up quickly.

    Cons

    The pay is low but industry standard. Room to grow but takes a lot of time to move up. People stay in the same position for 2+ years before new opportunity presents itself naturally.

    I have been working at Lionsgate full-time

    Pros

    Some entertainment industry perks are available like winter break, screenings during work hours, and relaxed working schedule (depending on your dept)

    Cons

    Salary & benefits are on the lower side of the industry (which is already low for finance related positions). Fragmented communication between depts and the heads continuously fail to address it.

    Advice to Management

    Trickle down economics is not good for morale! It's amazing what an In-n-out food truck can do for the "little people", as opposed to be skimpy with the daily perks of coffee creamer or eliminating expensed team lunches.

    I worked at Lionsgate full-time

    Pros

    Small-ish sized company(at least compared to the bigger studios), which is a plus. This means that teams are smaller, and you get to learn a lot of different things. Back in the day, the In-n-Out truck came by during the summers and there was the basketball tournament every summer as well. Some cool perks, but not nearly as many as at other places.

    Cons

    Learn what you can, and get out. Completely depends on which department you're in, but not much room for growth. The people who have been there since the original LG days are there to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Put all the trash cans back at individual desks.

    Pros

    Position interacts with multiple departments, offering editor a broader scope of the production and marketing processes. Able to work independently as well as with film publicists to secure best possible materials for the studio.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, but such is a career in entertainment. Not unusual.
