Enjoyed the coworkers and the perks, but felt disrespected as an employee
Written by Junior Video Editor and DP (Former Employee) from New York, NY on October 15, 2018
Right off the bat I really enjoyed my coworkers in the video department. We all vibed well together and we were eager to make something that meant something. But the repetitiveness of the work and the high volume it needed to be completed at sometimes resulted in 80 work weeks... (and we had to fight for overtime). Most people are contracted as "Permalance". - more... That meant poor benefits and an at-will employee who isn't an employee? The happy hours or company parties were a great deal of fun, but the demanding stubbornness of the higher-ups mixed with their lack of even knowing what the heck t ... - less
ProsHappy hours, Beauty sales, fundraisers, holiday parties, good coworkers
ConsGod awful management, doesn't truly value employees
