    I worked at dick clark productions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some good, talented people to work with
    Well-known, fun shows to work on
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Upper management is toxic. They treat everyone below them with disrespect. There is a lot of turnover because people are over worked and under appreciated. Nothing changes because HR is a joke, sucking up to the higher-ups and talking badly about lower employees thinking that is what will get her on management's good side.

    Advice to Management

    Improve office culture and communication. Stop gossiping. Production requires hard work and long hours, but there is no need to remind everyone who has the most power by driving them into the ground. Employees will do a better job and work harder for you if you treat them like people.

    Pros

    People were very friendly. Laid back and fun environment. Day trips to the set of So You Think You Can Dance and Six Flags. Lots of independence and feedback on work. Weekly luncheons with executives in the company. Everyone was willing to help and give advice.

    Cons

    Did not received any letters of recommendation even after my two supervisors promises. I can't list them as a reference on my resume because even though I was a great intern, I feel like they get so many interns they are too busy to be contacted as a reference for all of them.

    Advice to Management

    Orly was awesome. She is very funny and laid back, not intimidating at all. She ate lunch with the interns one day and gave us all a lot of great advice.

    Pros

    Exciting fast paced and heralded work. Some of the top assets in the industry at hand. High end production values, multi-channel leader, many friendly co-workers (and great medical benefits and and free lunch)

    Smaller nimble team - many shows in the year, some feel back to back from production standpoint (but that is nature of the business)
