    Pros

    Hustle and being proactive is rewarded. Leadership instability leads to opportunities to expand skill sets contribute in meaningful ways. Great group of people who are incredibly supportive.

    Cons

    Low pay. Not enough experts. Everyone is too green in middle management. Not enough time or resources to work smart. Constantly being asked to do more with less makes sharpens your skill set but not sustainable.

    Depends on what department you're in

    Feb 6, 2018 - Coordinator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lot of great people who work here. Good benefits. Gave me an opportunity where other studios might not have.

    Cons

    A lot of this may be about to change, but: Some department seem to balloon with Directors, VPs, SVPs, etc., while others have very little advancement. Not always proud of the quality of movies put out there. Not enough crossover between departments. Low on perks, sometimes you forget that we work in movies/TV/entertainment and it should be fun! Trying to modernize the culture but tough to shake out of the old school mentality. Pay for assistants and coordinators can be dismal.

    The benefits are great as are the people that work in my department. Not sure if other departments are as friendly but I assume so.

    Compensation isn't the highest for a studio.

    Great and terrible.

    Pros

    Lots of great people work for this company. It was a true pleasure working with most of them.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, as the company has grown they have casually thrown away many of the people who helped them get there. I suspect this is just a side effect of a company growing rapidly, but very sad. They have treated a lot of people who have given a lot to the company very poorly.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits (health, extra activities, HR, etc.) but it has recently gotten slightly more expensive. Mostly great people to work with. Get to work on fun titles. Young, fun employees. Great office location.

    Cons

    Open work space is a disaster. Not conducive to the type of work done at a movie studio. Empty promises of raises and promotions. LOW PAY! Huge lack of communication from the top down. Horrible food options.
