    Pros

    Young, fast-paced work environment. Cool projects are always happening and people are eager to mentor you as an intern.

    Cons

    Nobody really knows the chain of command--whose position is above whose. Everyone is a little scared of Harvey.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a clear chain of command. Find a space (desks) for interns to work. Don't underpay your interns.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at The Weinstein Company LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best in the business work at TWC. At this lean company you will have access to a lot of information and executives aren't snobby or too political. Everyone here gets it done. Great product that you can believe in and work your butt off for.

    Cons

    Insanely micromanaged from the top down. This lack of decision making is catastrophic for business and leaves employees on constant, and expensive, clean up duty. Must have thick skin is an understatement.


  7. "Good experience for resume, difficult work environment"

    Pros

    Good industry name, lots of work experience.

    Cons

    Opportunities to move up limited, very political, hard to not get pigeon-holed, low salary, many employees unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and give people opportunities worthy of their experience.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Weinstein Company LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some amazing people who work for TWC -- it's very Devil Wears Prada. If you can last a year at Weinstein, you can make it ANYWHERE.

    The work itself is very rewarding. You get huge opportunities to work with talent, give your input, and carry out your ideas.

    Cons

    The higher ups. Some of the higher ups here are extremely volatile (to put it mildly). One particular HU was out to sabotage anyone who stood in his way and made him look bad (if you yourself looked good to anyone else).

    Advice to Management

    Get better higher ups.

    I have been working at The Weinstein Company LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Looks great on resume. Ability to make yourself stand out and chutzpah is rewarded.

    Cons

    Good luck getting anything done through normal channels. Management is slow moving, lethargic. Talent is not always properly supported so all the good ones move on.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Work towards long term solvency, not just the quick buck.


  10. "Great for those who have internal structure, not so much for those who get easily frazzled"

    Pros

    This company can be great when you're in the right place at the right time. Once you're rolling, you can make your way up very quickly.

    The ability to work on amazing films and see and carry out your campaigns.

    Freedom to conceptualize campaigns and flesh them out.

    Cons

    intense work environment, can be toxic

    no training whatsoever

    Advice to Management

    you must be willing to put the time and effort to up morale. In a fast changing environment like this, there must be some structure.


  11. "A constant rollercoaster of highs and lows with some room for growth but not much mentorship."

    Place is extremely free of bureaucracy and red-tape and can allow your duties to grow based on ambition.

    Cons

    Lack of solid structure, disorganization, disrespect from management, 24/7 work expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an exec dedicated strictly to internal operations and policy.
