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

    Pros

    Good quality product. Good benefits, but does not outweigh the bad situation.

    Cons

    The most unsafe, poorly lit, unkempt, unorganized, and poorly maintained facility I have ever seen. Change is very slow, most likely due to the bare-bones staffing, which is hard to retain due to the low pay. Good people are used until they are used up. Total lack of work-life balance, hypocritical upper management, and nepotism runs rampant. Asking questions or working on changes that affect family members can get you in deep trouble. The labor workforce is enthusiastic and engaged, but I feel sorry for those that think it is the greatest job in the world when there are workplaces that are so much better. Good luck.

    I have been working at Paragon Films full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment, growing company, expansion options, competitive pay and benefits. Has a family feel.

    Cons

    Firing happens for the smallest of reasons. Management isn't always living up to the company values for their teams. Complete lack of training programs and advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say. Treat everyone with respect and follow through with promises. Get back to what "sets" Paragon apart from the rest of the industry

    Pros

    Average pay for similar businesses benefits slightly above average.

    Cons

    Understaffed employees routinely work through breaks machinery runs poor at best disheartening as one employee put it.every employee I spoke with had no job satisfaction just a job.

    Advice to Management

    You may not get an honest answer from people living in fear of job loss. Don't take things personally and don't be to proud to ask for help no disrespect intended.
