    I worked at Showtime Pictures part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of any but the site requires me to put 20 words into this field.

    Cons

    I have numerous gripes but will only cite the most offensive one. Business name on paychecks would change frequently. We were asked not to deposit paychecks but to cash them out from the register at hq, and return the checks to the company. They would make us wait hours, sometimes days, until there was "enough money in the register" to cash the check. Corporate culture among employees/supervisors often consisted of "hey, you can't complain about this, we're all in the same boat..." SHADY!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Legitimize your business, pay your employees.

    I worked at Showtime Pictures part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with the state of the art camera systems and Darkroom software but that is where the Pro's end

    Cons

    My Paychecks often bounced often causing me to run up fees at my bank, my raise was 8 months late and only after much protest. our manager was actually incompetent as she knew literally NOTHING about photography nor american culture, she was taught by new employees how to use the camera system. and the company folded at the location suddenly leaving employees without a job. they did provide 1 weeks severance pay starting the week we were already working.

    Advice to Management

    learn from your mistakes or fold completely.
