    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained great experience in reality TV production and creative producing, met some awesome people, was allowed to voice my input on a variety of things.

    Cons

    Support from production management was lacking and pay was on the lower end of the scale.

    Advice to Management

    Please reward the hard workers who want to learn and grow

    Pros

    Centrally located in Hollywood. Have produced some cool shows and movies.

    Cons

    Hire inexperienced office staff to save money. Only pay for half of parking costs for employees. Pay below the going rate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced office staff and pay going rate - don't undercut the people that produce your product.

    I have been working at World Of Wonder Productions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a well run company. Every necessary position is filled. The budgets are lean, everyone works hard, but no one is doing two jobs. Equipment and positions that are needed are present. The people are kind and understanding, but with requisite deadlines.

    Cons

    The building is old, so the air-conditioning can get funky when it's hot. The edit bays on the second floor are small. It's a little crowded, which can get loud. The bull-pen aspect is great for collaboration, though.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a million dollars and move out of the building for six months and then upgrade it, and then move back in. But I know that's impossible!

    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get some experience and get out.....
    Some nice people work there but they get jaded quickly by the toxic environment....
    If you do a good job you will probably be left alone to get on with it but may not be rewarded

    Cons

    Low pay, selfish and cliquey culture.....hard to progress unless you suck up to the right cool in group...

    Advice to Management

    Fire the managers

    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    World of Wonder is a small, close knit, community of producers, and documentarians whose subject matter is often on the fringe of normal programming. Great place to gain experience in all facets of production while learning on the job. Definitely sensitive to the balance of work and life. Huge pro there.

    Cons

    Promoting from within sometimes leads to titles that don't match experience levels. There are many seasoned vets under this roof, but also several folks with inflated titles.

    I worked at World Of Wonder Productions as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company, organized, great staff, knowledgable individuals with the desire to perform to the best of their abilities. Communication was good.

    Cons

    The only con I can find is financial. Pay scale was about 10-15% lower than most production companies and they did not compensate for overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, the crew was great. I had a good experience with World of Wonder. I would work for them again should they call upon me.
