"Great People with Great Talent Wasted on Poor Management" Edit

Former Employee - Creative Director

Doesn't Recommend

Negative Outlook

I worked at Hi5 Studios full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

"Good People, But Disorganized & Duplicitous Makes for a Bad Work Environment" Edit

Former Employee - Producer in Valencia, CA

Doesn't Recommend

Negative Outlook

I worked at Hi5 Studios full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good People. Fun Environment. Lot's of office parties and things.

Cons

Pay isn't commensurate with Market Values. Benefits are terrible. Micromanage every employee. Firing people left & right for the smallest things. They claim to give out bonuses, but I've only seen 1 tiny little bonus even though I was led to believe they were a monthly thing.

I don't expect this company to be here in another year.

Advice to Management

You're playing games with peoples lives. Stop trying to "have fun" at work and just get work done. You need people with ACTUAL work experience, not just people with an ability to act like a child on camera.
