Staff Retoucher (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OH9 June 2017
I worked at the Ohio Splashlight location as a retoucher. The team is awesome- great, fun and nice people who know how to work well together. The company as a whole is very down to earth and accommodating. Though the client is very specific with things, and the retouching department was under staffed at times. Overall I recommend the job for someone looking to move up in the retouching world! Great place to learn new skills, build the "3-5 years experience", know how to act in a corporate setting, and learn the ins and outs of an e-commerce studio.
Pros
Cool people, good pay, wear whatever you want, laid back management
Cons
Location, dark room, under staffed sometimes

Great place with fantastic people
Retoucher (Former Employee) –  Reynoldsburg, OH13 April 2017
I worked for Splashlight in their satellite studio in Ohio for about a year. During that time, I built strong friendships with my many coworkers. I learned new important techniques in my field. I also learned how to adapt in a busy corporate setting. Because of my time with Splashlight, I have been able to work for companies I never thought my resume would match. Although the long hours could at times be frustrating, they were always willing to accommodate my needs if I really needed it. I would absolutely recommend working for Splashlight as it is an excellent opportunity for anyone in the creative industry in Ohio.
Pros
Friends, Starbucks, excellent benefits, wear whatever you want
Cons
Long hours, somewhat understaffed

Worst Place Ever!
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  75 varick st20 September 2016
This place is the worst! Don't bother working here if you can help it. Extremely high turnover.

Culture of back stabbing and blaming to cover up ineptness, no two people or depts can work together effectively. In meetings only one or two people are ever allowed to do the talking, and its always the same two. The rest of the people slowly disappear to be replaced a few weeks later by new people that are not allowed to speak.

The CEO's are clueless and in many cases are actively running two different companies. One acts like its a media and technology company, while the other one thinks of it as a hotel. If they can not get on the same page, how is anyone else going to know what this company does.

The company does not work well with partnerships. Those too end within a year or so. In my short time, 2 different "be all and end all" partnerships started and then ended. Once something has ended or a person has left or been fired, you are not allowed to mention them again. Creepy
Pros
Free lunches if you work on set. 10% discount if you eat at the company owned cafe. BTW, you have too, no one is allowed to eat at their desk.
Cons
Upper Management is unethical with vendors, clients and staff. Company culture is Rotten to the core. Extremely high turnover.
