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

    Pros

    You see celebs here and there.

    Cons

    Unbelievably unprofessional and just full of hype. The pay is horrible and the higher ups expect you to do more than you already do for the same cost. Everyone is rude and full of themselves and they all talk about each other behind their backs. An extremely toxic place where lines are crossed and blurred at all times. People that are well into their 40s acting like they're teens and spreading venom throughout the company. Would never recommend, not even for the hype.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cross boundaries with your employees and learn to value the work and effort that they put in

    I worked at Milk Studios full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You look cool cause you work at a cool place. There are lots of parties. Free cigarettes. Sometimes famous people come in. Sometimes the famous people ask you to do stuff for them.

    Cons

    You aren't invited to the parties. You are and will forever be extremely replaceable. You need to intern for an undisclosed amount of time before ever making a cent. Expect strong worded, unfiltered emails from your bosses. You'll meet the guy of your dreams about three times a day but all of them are way out of your league and treat you as such.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real.

    I have been working at Milk Studios full-time

    Pros

    You work with people you love. They become your friends for life. The training is intense, similar to hazing. However, the way MILK trains you really does set you up for the production, photo, fashion world.

    Cons

    Constant negative feedback, nothing positive. This is a tactic they use to keep current employees to stay in their company. How? By constantly telling you how much you "suck", you begin to subconsciously believe that since you "suck" at your job, that you cannot get a job anywhere else. DISCLAMIER: YOU CAN, AT A BETTER PLACE THAT WILL VALUE YOU. Environment is also negative. They barely let you take ANY BREAKS. EVEN FOR THE DAMN BATHROOM. Management gives you no incentive to grow there and stay there in the company. Don't give in to this place. LOTS OF LABOR LAWS BROKEN. NO OVERTIME AT ALL.

    I worked at Milk Studios (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get a sense of working with others
    Get to help out for cool events and meet cool people
    Really gain respect for individuals who work on pre-production of events. Its not easy

    Cons

    Dealing with rude people who think they are better than others just because they work at Milk.
    Working in a super vain environment and dealing with vain people
    Communication sucks
    No one knows how to TEACH, they expect interns to just KNOW

    Advice to Management

    For a company that takes pride on being professional, a few people that work in the events department need to take a class on professionalism. Please learn how to actually teach interns as opposed to having them figure everything out on their own (I was actually told to "figure it out" multiple times ) Attitudes, drama, and the talking behind peoples back is very high school and shouldn't go in such a "professional" work environment.

    Pros

    Nice facilities. Cool Toys.

    Cons

    -Obnoxious and pretentious staff
    -Zero leadership or instruction
    -Internships treated like third class citizens
    -If you are looking to learn during your internship...don't bother. The staff with the exception of a few people show little interest in you or their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Start giving the people that work for no pay more respect and education. That's what we came here for!

    Located across the street from Chelsea Market.

    Cons

    - pretentious management
