    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.

    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 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.

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

    Pros

    - A collaborative and passionate team, although working on different continents
    - In the last year and a half there has been some really great hires - young and smart people that understand the landscape, are creative and do-ers
    - flexible work-life balance due to being a global company - employees are trusted to do their work without being micro-managed
    - new investments and acquisitions on the horizon meaning more opportunities for employees to grow and develop

    Cons

    - the company is starting to grow quickly so there is a lot of change, but there are some well experienced people leading the different departments
    - not as much infrastructure as a large multi-national company but this allows employees to wear many hats and grow in their roles and personal development

    Advice to Management

    more investment in marketing is required - but that should all follow in the coming months

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

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed working with a team of like minded people who share the same dream. People got the job done and had fun at the same time.
    Worked with some interesting and unique partnerships, lots of opportunities to use own ideas and creativeness. Flexible working hours and space.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt a lack of direction, but support was always there if you needed it and allowed opportunity to grow within the role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the investment, such a unique idea that deserves the opportunity to grow
