    Current Employee - Production Assistant in New York, NY

    I have been working at Hearst full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As a full-time production assistant, my salary is great considering the fact that I'm in an entry-level job.

    Cons

    While the people in HR are friendly, they're not educated about company policies, not to mention they are really slow to respond.
