    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 as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Young company. Got to write blog posts with my name published, so that was kind of cool.

    Cons

    As an intern I did not necessarily learn much, just got told to do jobs no one else wanted. Have a day or two to really sit down and show the ropes.

     I never got paid for my transport as an intern though I have asked on multiple occasions.

    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.
