    I worked at Village Cinemas full-time

    Pros

    The company is focused on rewarding staff giving screenings and plenty of staff parties. The people are amazing at the job and the culture among staff is very friendly.

    Cons

    At a site level, innovation is slow and comes with stringent guides from Head Office. Head office are reluctant to provide approval and can sometimes act in their best interests and not that of the sites.
