  1. 4.0
    Former Intern, less than 1 year

    Summer Internship

    Mar 11, 2016 - Production Assistant in New Orleans, LA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Employees are really friendly. Work on location is exciting and creative. Team environment is comforting and allows you to learn something new everyday.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. The industry is about who you know and if people like you and like working with you. If you screw up on one job and anger anyone, you probably won't get another job on the next film.

  2. 4.0
    Current Intern, less than 1 year

    Internship for the Television division of Lionsgate creative/programming team.

    Pros

    The staff is amazing. All are willing to bend over backwards to help you learn any and all aspects of the company. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere that is extremely efficient but it feels like everyone is your friend and not just co-worker.

    Cons

    The only con is long hours at the office and off clock hours. However, the work that you are doing is very interesting so if you are interested in what their company does you will actually enjoy the long hours.

    Pros

    Winter break, fun small perks of working for entertainment

    Cons

    Working long hours is a cultural thing. No one really needs to work as much as they do. A lot of time wasting here to appear like you are working.

    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    No Team Spirit

    Apr 4, 2018 - Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Interesting choice of Film Titles

    Cons

    No team spirit. No communication between departments. Far too many cliques. No real chance for advancement. Low pay. Interns never make it out of the post room. Expected to work long hours with no additional pay or lieu time. No access to work phones for many despite being expected to work out of hours from home. Lack of organisation in work flow. Worked for the company for nearly two years and was never introduced to the CEO.
