Pros: a very youth oriented culture, it's a lot of fun to be involved in, some great take home skills for amazing photo edits
Cons: severely outdated computer hardware, broken systems in it, a very real and constant threat of loosing your job without fault or blame or even explanation, unrealistic expectations from management, cult-like church run business
With an incredible end product, Cady has incredible potential.
Cady was a room full of enthusiastic young people that were willing to do their jobs passionately and with a constant party like atmosphere brought on and held onto by the middle management. We learned a lot in a very short amount of time. If you like working with a deadline, this was a great job.
Sadly, Cady doesn't keep the bulk of it's staff on payroll during the year so each "season" has new employee's with no prior experience. They call it "seasonal", but even most of the senior staff has been there for years on end- with no benefits. Many of the employees are laid off with no notice, just a "quick meeting in the conference room" and they're out the door with no notice to the management or team leaders- just a dip in the payroll and staffing. Payment is 1/3 of the industry standard and NO job security.
