    I have been working at World Of Wonder Productions for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a well run company. Every necessary position is filled. The budgets are lean, everyone works hard, but no one is doing two jobs. Equipment and positions that are needed are present. The people are kind and understanding, but with requisite deadlines.

    Cons

    The building is old, so the air-conditioning can get funky when it's hot. The edit bays on the second floor are small. It's a little crowded, which can get loud. The bull-pen aspect is great for collaboration, though.

    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get some experience and get out..... Some nice people work there but they get jaded quickly by the toxic environment.... If you do a good job you will probably be left alone to get on with it but may not be rewarded

    Cons

    Low pay, selfish and cliquey culture.....hard to progress unless you suck up to the right cool in group...

    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    World of Wonder is a small, close knit, community of producers, and documentarians whose subject matter is often on the fringe of normal programming. Great place to gain experience in all facets of production while learning on the job. Definitely sensitive to the balance of work and life. Huge pro there.

    Cons

    Promoting from within sometimes leads to titles that don't match experience levels. There are many seasoned vets under this roof, but also several folks with inflated titles.

    Former Contractor - Camera Operator in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions for less than a year

    Pros

    Good company, organized, great staff, knowledgable individuals with the desire to perform to the best of their abilities. Communication was good.

    Cons

    The only con I can find is financial. Pay scale was about 10-15% lower than most production companies and they did not compensate for overtime.
