    I worked at Nine9 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. Job sounds too good to be true. This is a sales job.

    Cons

    This company is a lie. Nothing like the job description. You are not a "talent specialist," you are a "sales person," who has to sale a $500 plan to innocent people. You lie to people about making their dreams a reality, but all this company wants is people's money. No one should have to pay to attend castings. Also if you don't book people--you don't get paid. This is a commission job, so you don't get paid hourly. Moreover, this company is doing wrong. STAY AWAY!!!

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to help people achieve their dreams, work with people one-on-one. Do more promotions for them, be their public relations. A simple picture with their own written bio is not going to help nobody.

    I worked at Nine9 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, other than seeing talent excited and thinking that I had genuine relationships with the team I was working with.

    Cons

    I could go on for days... long hours (6day work week), inconsistent pay, constantly getting berated by the office director about sales, no work/life balance whatsoever... everyone here is fake and professionalism is nowhere to be found. They will rip everything from right under you and assume everything will be okay. I did everything I could to be my best and believe in it all, but it didn’t matter in the end. I’ve never been so disrespected by a group of people in my life...

    Advice to Management

    It too late for that, and I’m sure nothing I write in this section will even make a difference.

    Pros

    I work in an admin role and the work is enjoyable, challenging but not over the top hard. The rest of the employees are really nice and were very welcoming. I like the hours and the atmosphere.

    Cons

    My only complaint is they play some types of music that I don't like (electronic and dance).

    Advice to Management

    You've been fair and warm so keep that up. Thanks for always listening and answering my questions quickly.

    Pros

    The company has a family culture, not the cold corporate feel you get at a lot of places.

    Cons

    Corporate office is in MI, so not a ton of face-to-face interaction with senior management. Would have liked to have had a little more face-to-face.

    Pros

    I honestly love working at Nine9, the Management team along with the owner are awesome and actually care about the workers! they are very understanding with your schedule and do their best to work around it. They also buy lunch and make work fun with events occasionally to keep everyone involved and happy.

    Cons

    Only Con I can think of is the Insurance is not really affordable compared to other companies

    I have been working at Nine9 full-time

    Pros

    They do a lot of promoting from within the company and are open to hiring entry level candidates who need experience. So essentially people can build their experience with the company and get into higher positions over time. The management is great and the culture within the company has only improved over time, so people get along well and there are fun things going on pretty regularly.

    Cons

    The salary is good, it is easy to take time off, and the vacation time is good after the first year...

    However, the health insurance is very expensive. It isn't a big deal because you can go through the Marketplace (Government Health Insurance) online and get it much cheaper, but it is a hassle.

    Advice to Management

    Consider getting some affordable (and quality) insurance for your employees, they will thank you for it!

    Pros

    To work in a team environment, also had the chance to encourage and inspire others that are trying to pursue their dreams in modeling and acting just like myself. Have the chance to actually go to casting that are on a national level. Great place to work.

    Cons

    The only thing I would say is long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Build a great team of individuals wanting to be in the industry.

    Pros

    I have been with this amazing company for nine years now and every day I am so honored to be a part of it. We genuinely put so much time and dedication into helping these amazing talent that just need the right guidane. It is so great to work and an environment that is so much fun and welcoming. Your coworkers turn into your friends and we all work together hand-in-hand and achieve amazing goals that help our talent succeed. Our leadership always have open ears and love ideas that we offer them. They never shut us down and take everything that we bring to them very seriously. Oh, and all the jeopardy games. Those are the best.

    Cons

    Because it is the entertainment industry we typically start later which leads to us leaving later. Sometimes I would be lucky to get out of the office by 8:30 PM. There goes the saying: you can’t have it all.
