Freelance (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – 9 January 2018
This isn't a great place to be. No development or proper management. Teams seemed to scramble to get things done. A lot of young, impressionable people here who are extra sensitive and competitive when there's no need. Although management is nice and the work produced is of great quality, their operations is just a mess.
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.
Cool people, good pay, wear whatever you want, laid back management
Retoucher (Former Employee) – Reynoldsburg, OH – 13 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.
Friends, Starbucks, excellent benefits, wear whatever you want
Account Manager (Former Employee) – 75 varick st – 20 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
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.
Upper Management is unethical with vendors, clients and staff. Company culture is Rotten to the core. Extremely high turnover.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – 29 June 2016
Splashlight was an amazing place to work! The people you meet and things you learn are just awesome. The manager of the front desk however was just awful. She was unprofessional and picked favorites on the team. She was constantly taking sides and never listening to everyone. If one of her favorites said you did not complete a task or did something wrong she would not ask you personally what happened she would believe them and reprimanded you. Her favorites on the other hand were never yelled at or reprimanded for there wrong doings. As a matter a fact she even gave them promotions and put them in positions that they were not educated in. I love the advantages of advancing with in the company but honestly there were many people she promoted that were undeserving. Splashlight is a great place to start but beware of the front desk.
