    I have been working at Talenthouse full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From day one I felt supported by every member of the team locally and abroad, my schedule is flexible when I want it to be and its a joy to come to work and collaborate with the team. Management is great for advice, help and guidance and also lets me be independent and self sufficient.

    Cons

    Training could use some more organization.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You get good at defending yourself, great learning experience of how bad things could be, make a list and avoid at your next position.

    Cons

    We would receive funding, execs pull up in new cars. Meanwhile the employees wouldn't get paid on time.
    The title VP is given to almost everyone. Sales team is unable to sell anything.

    Advice to Management

    Therapy. Years of therapy. realize your not (important) and people see through the flashy dance.

    I have been working at Talenthouse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Recent new management, cool new offices, working with brands and celebrities, and most importantly working with an incredible community of multi talented artists. Great work from home and holiday benefits.

    Cons

    Just coming out of start up mode so still finding its way with systems and process but nearly there. Previously had a very junior team but that's changed now.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recruit more talented Staff to bring this great idea. Keep investing in the community and product as its a life changing platform for creators.

    I worked at Talenthouse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The concept of the company is fantastic - helping artists (of all skill levels and verticals) to participate in big-name campaigns. Talenthouse serves as the essential middle ground for artists to boost their visibility and to gain unique, monetary opportunities.

    Cons

    Poor management.
    Directionless.
    Toxic company culture, at least in the Los Angeles office.
    Turn-over too high; switching employees every month will not solve the greater issues at hand.
    Financial Mismanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees.
    Focus on building a more positive company culture that mirrors the company's mission of openness, creativity, & respect.
    Listen to your users to help drive product and to enhance user experience.
