      Exciting, But Not Worthwhile - You'll Make More Money Elsewhere

      Pros

      Fast-paced, mostly interesting work. Potential for great co-workers and friendships. Some potential for bragging rights and interesting stories.

      Cons

      Extremely low pay - when I moved to a new company I was offered almost double my eOne salary with the same exact title and zero need for negotiation. No bonuses for the average employee, and tiny raises (if anything) on a yearly basis. Fear based environment - people are constantly being laid off, and you never know which day will be your last. It's always in the back of your mind, and even if you're not the one axed in a certain year, it might be all of the best people on your team. It's merciless. You *will* watch people called away, fired in an office somewhere, escorted out, and their manager packing up their desk to give to them in the lobby - sometimes a few, sometimes a whole department, but this happens every single year. Overworked - small teams, high turnover and constant layoffs mean that you'll be wearing many hats, and working many long hours to make up for whatever inexperienced person they hired for the lowest possible salary. Hours are 9-6 at best, and you will likely be watched like a hawk. Depending on your department, you will be "volun-told" to work extra unpaid hours setting up for and working at company events. Overall, I was extremely loyal for many years and it didn't earn much for me. Beware that, outside of the entertainment industry, not many people know what eOne is so it's not going to be your greatest resume asset.

      Pros

      Nice offices in a good location.

      Cons

      The company was for sale for years and was constantly buying other companies and laying off the staff to keep cash flow positive. Every few months a bunch of new bright eyed, recently acquired people would flow into the building and then be shown the door in 18 months. The HR team turned over completely 3 times in a very short time.
