    I worked at Paramount Pictures full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture. The people who work there are very pleasant and happy to be there. The intern program provides lots of learning experiences across departments.

    Cons

    The program is only ten weeks, which is fairly short compared to the duration of summer break. The company has also been struggling with their films lately.

    Advice to Management

    The studio needs to focus on developing new franchises, and ensuring higher quality of the films they release. Many films in the recent past have lacked the level of quality necessary to ensure success.

    I worked at Paramount Pictures full-time

    Pros

    Great holiday time and workplace perks including on-lot screenings, Lunch & Learns, shuttle to Larchmont, good on-lot food and Coffee Bean.

    Cons

    Overall, Paramount lacks transparency for its employees. Junior level employees are not offered shadowing opportunities, invitations to town halls, or insight to higher level decisions. There is slow upward movement and a prominent hierarchy that is difficult to break through.

    Advice to Management

    Foster employee growth opportunities, coaching, shadowing, transparency, and retention incentives.
