      Pros

      Seriously there is nothing good to say at this time about WW1

      Less than nothing. The salaries are abysmal. No one should consider coming to this organization.

      Pros

      There was a certain level of autonomy. Mostly was left alone to get your work done.

      Cons

      I worked here for a short time (less than a year), and I have never worked in such a dysfunctional environment. Although we had autonomy to get our work done, there was never any structure for the long term, and we were given information on a need to know basis, so we were always left out of the loop as to what was going on with new shows, and new ideas. I felt a lot of their practices are old school and intimidation tactics were used to put you in your place if you came up with a different idea than what your boss thought. Generally it was a shut up and just get your work done kind of environment.
