Channel Management Intern (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 25, 2017
The company is growing so rapidly; to succeed in this fast-paced environment, you must be highly proficient in technical and social platforms, possess the ability to self-manage, work with little direction, and be self-motivated. I see all of these things as pros, but listed it as a con as not everyone can thrive in this kind of environment.
Social Video Strategist Intern (Former Employee) – Playa del Rey, CA – May 19, 2017
Fullscreen is a great place to expand your career knowledge. You will meet and converse with large clients and become a great channel manager. The best part of this job are the amazing co-workers and people you will hang out with.
Intern (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – June 27, 2016
I enjoyed working at Fullscreen. I was an intern and everyone there was very informative. Everyone there is there for a reason, so people work with passion and the vibe is not one where you feel people hate their jobs.
Mobile Developer (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 22, 2016
Over the past 3 weeks I've been switched through 3 different teams. I know who I "report" to, but I currently have no manager and take orders from multiple people. Perhaps the experience would be better if I lived in LA, but being in Chicago with a manager that doesn't want to manage has been difficult.
This situation came about after Fullscreen acquired StageBloc (now Fullscreen Direct) and it was decided that mobile at StageBloc would not be a focus (and thus the team was slimmed down and the extra mobile developers were moved to Fullscreen's team). Note that this decision came entirely from the top down and the actual developers weren't asked for what they thought about such a move (much less who was/was not moved). I'm sure if we worked together and people communicated more transparently we could have come to a better situation where everyone was satisfied.
I suggest any Mobile Developers to avoid Fullscreen until they figure out their management situation.
On the other hand I have nothing but good things to say about their Frontend team - the management there seems to be in good order.
Free flights to LA, some good people to work with
No notion of growth, bad management, not a tech company
Incase if you don't know what fullscreen is, I'l be happy to extrapolate.
Filmmaker/Director (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – February 26, 2016
Fullscreen is a company that pays you through YouTube. It adds advertisements to your videos. You get paid by how many clicks your ads get by your fans. It is a self employed job, you make videos anytime you want by being consistent to grow your channel and likely having more fans will earn you even more.
Director of Beauty & Fashion Partnerships (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 7, 2015
The MCN space is pretty notoriously difficult from a work perspective: limited work/life balance, a very trying new space with a lack of education, and typical start-up pains. I believe Fullscreen is the best of the group in getting it done at the end of the day but there are struggles with confusing staffing situations, inadequate/understaffed support teams, and conflicts at the senior management level on what is best for the company. If they can figure this out and agree on the next step for Fullscreen, this would be an amazing workplace.
Free lunches, fun & friendly team, innovative space, lots of opportunities to learn
Unclear path to advancement, conflicts with management, understaffed support/production teams
Partner/ Youtube Content Creator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 22, 2015
I was a youtube partner before working with fullscreen and my google adsense account ended then I was left dead in the water! I heard about this network , applied and I wish I knew about the company 4 years ago because in just a few years time I should be making enough with this company to virtually count it as a second job/ self employed business.
no healthcare for content creators, revenue share may not fair with everyone
MomPulse Community Technology Manager (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – May 20, 2014
I first found about Fullscreen Inc. through a friend on YouTube and saw that she was a Partner. I thought wouldn't it be cool to greet and associate with other persons that love doing what they do best, and that is to create content that will inspire, make laugh, informational for others to watch. I saw a promotional apply link through her page and decided to go through and apply to the partnership program. I was accepted and couldn't be more happier. I really honestly loved and enjoyed interacting, collaborating with other creators/artist, but most of all helping others to achieve. I guess my personality and strengths shined through as they offered me a position working for a sub-network i was apart of called "MomPulse" a network that specialized in parenting, giving advice to other parents, kid related, family oriented etc. Working with the Fullscreen team was great! I loved every minute of it. Great Company to work with, staff and administrators were easy going and and able to work with. The best Part I would say is that you could tell everyone really enjoyed and loved what they do in each department of the company. Would I would recommend this company and or even being a Partner for them through YouTube. They are awesome!
