    Pros

    Nothing. If you do not want to work ever again in the future please join this company.

    Cons

    Bad boss (Can be your worst nightmare)
    No sense of how agency works!! a joke in the name of an agency
    Please save your resume from this disgrace of an agency
    Hardly any good work
    No guidance at all
    The Senior management is a laughing stock

    Advice to Management

    shut down your company

    I worked at Talenthouse (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None.
    - You may learn to proactively take initiatives and meet many new clients as anyone who has heard or worked with Talenthouse India in past would not even consider working with them again. So in a way you learn a lot about business development and getting the work done as nobody will help you in reaching out to clients.

    Cons

    False commitments from management
    No work culture. If you are a fresher out of college, you will just be burnt with unnecessary work or get laid back and totally wasted.
    No growth as company has not been able to grow since 5 years
    Bad reputation with clients. It is a small world and anyone you approach to will end up feeling cheated as Talenthouse India fails to deliver and you will be blamed by managing as well clients will remember your face

    Advice to Management

    Talenthouse US should actually take a call on how their name is wrongly being abused by weak management at Reliance Entertainment. As for management at Reliance Talenthouse in Mumbai - seriously need to analyze how disastrous their behavior is to other people and their business

    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.
