  5. "As the manager at Eclipsed Studios my main function is to help create projects from their inception to post production."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Working in the Film Industry allows you to showcase multifaceted skills and create new partnerships and strengthen current ones to achieve Production goals.

    Cons

    Sometimes projects can take longer than scheduled and thusly produce issues within completion of project. Weather can also be a major factor if the Production has this in relation to filming.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that keeping an open mind and filtering opinions can be helpful when working with Producers.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NBCUniversal has a big array of business units that provide amazing work environments.

    The brand alone is strong should you want to work in entertainment

    Cons

    Choose the business unit wisely, there are some that do not provide a work life balance. There is a huge disconnect between leadership and the actual staff executing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Choose leaders wisely. Leadership within the entertainment side are inspiring while, non-entertainment leaders are extremely disconnected with their staff. Does not lead to an inspiring workplace
