There is a lot of very bad gossip done by office staff. The moment you leave, and I mean anyone, they say terrible things about you. Doesn't matter if you're a designer, Artistic Director, or patron.
Support from management
Very little. They will hang you out to dry to save themselves.
Teamwork only happens during crunch time of Tech week.
Freedom to work independently
Absolutely. There's not enough staff to micromanage anyone.
Things constantly are not communicated. Requests are not made through proper or ant channels. Things change quickly are most parties are not informed. Often communication is totally lacking.
Yes. They have good gender equality.
Attitude towards older colleagues
All employees want older management gone. But they often treat older people disrespectfully.
Your job is a dead-end.
Overall compensation for your work
It's not even a liveable wage. Plus most weeks you work 70-80 hours barely scratching the surface of 40k per year.
Office / Work Environment
In the winter, the scene shop barely makes it to 50 degrees, and in the summer it get to be close to a 100 degrees. While the main office has proper heating and cooling. Outlying buildings lack proper temperature control.
They often get rid of scenery instead of reusing.
They believe you should live and breathe for your art. There is no consideration for any outside life or goals.
No. I'm not. It was a terrible experience for everyone in my family. But they do make pretty things.
If they find better, or like someone more they will hire them in your place. Job searches are kept open and will replace you as they can. Unless you have signed a contract.
They do if they have to.
There is a blatant disregard for safety. People not trained using machinery. All that matters is getting the job done now, and at this very moment.
Always new and creative projects to work on.
Inclusive / Diverse
Only higher management gets to have ideas. They do not value or listen to the other ideas had by others.
