Owners are unethical, egotistical and have no clue how to run a business.
Owners are insecure and just want to hire puppets of themselves who they can control and who work and sound just like them. If you have any ideas of your own and you speak up outside of the "templated" ways of working that they've followed for 22 years, they will fire you without any warning, disucssion of any sort or take responsibility away from you (but not tell you why) and have someone else do it. They do not know how to manage a team or how to inspire a team or even how to speak to a team. The owners pretend they're open-minded but are far from it and will take a 180 turn and literally dispose of you, via email on a Sunday night. Too scared to speak to anyone in person about any issues from script writing to process, even basic business challenges, they'd rather ignore it and have someone else do it or even easier, just fire you. You will NOT grow at this company, you will not have any mentoring, support or guidance from these two owners. It's like one of them is forced to be there - no passion or excitement about the company or making creative work - and the other has nothing BUT the company so obsesses over everything and works 24/7 and expects you to do the same and causes chaos and drama to feed his ego. Do not work here if you value yourself and if you are looking to learn, grow and be excited about your work. Don't work here if you want to "work in documentaries" as they are mostly creating corporate/non-profit gala videos. Don't believe the recent positive posts trying to counter all the real horror stories of abuse and disrespectful behavior by owners. They don't care about you, and it is just a matter of days until one of the owners decides you are OUT and has the other owner available as his mouthpiece to send the email to you on Sunday night. Believe me, they've done this NUMEROUS times in just the last 2 years, who knows how many times the 20 years prior. It's all a facade. Stay away and spare yourself the torture. There is nothing to gain and you'll be bored on the projects anyway. The owners just want to make enough money to fund their Brooklyn apartments and lake house and boat while they pay the rest of the company working super hard less than industry standard rates...so it all goes in their pockets while the rest of the staff does all the heavy lifting. For your own sanity, avoid this company like the plague and look elsewhere.
