Great talent Great production leadership Great work culture Good pay Good benefits
Pay could be a bit higher. Ideally they could build long term employment strategies for the crew. Rather than project based contracts, permanent crew would be retained if longer sighted production strategies, would solidify projects already green-lit, and scheduled for production.

There are no pros unless you like low pay and dysfunctional management.
Never in my entire career have I met worse people. Their childish disorganized and fully broken (lack of) system for doing anything other than 'make it up as you go' is beyond low quality / low intelligence / low artistry. The worst part are the LIES - they lie. They will tell you one thing (before you start working there) then do a 180 and act like you are crazy as soon as things reveal themselves. The only reason they are not overwhelmed by bad reviews is that the film biz is small and broke freelancers are frightened of burning a bridge. Terrible people - terrible place to work.

Lots of respect for the art form from the department heads and production staff that was very encouraging. All in all a great environment with great co-workers.
The pay is mid to low, and it is not unionized, so the benefits are weak at best.
