Fremantlemedia Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Fremantle Ltd. /ˈfriːmæntəl/ (formerly FremantleMedia) is a British-based international television content, production, and distribution subsidiary of Bertelsmann's RTL Group, founded in 2001, and evolved as Europe's largest TV, radio, and production company. Its world headquarters is in London.
A former employee said this in a review: "- As a production assistant, you are truly at the "bottom of the barrel". Fremantlemedia will do anything to not pay overtime. The pay is very low with no guarantee for future work and you will get dissapointed to see how TV shows are made and produced".
Former Employee - Entry Level says"HR prioritizes from the top down, the lower down the food chain you are the less they care about your treatment. Unscripted treats anyone below director/manager level like trash. When employees in any department complain about higher ups poor behavior and unfair treatment they are likely to be fired to protect the higher ups. HR does not protect its staff here they protect the brand. There’s also extreme amounts of privilege and flagrant displays of wealth including a MASSIVE pay/benefits gap between those above or below level."
says"bad management, did not care about employees"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"No time for lunch hours, no respect from management, even when you have gone above and beyond."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Irresponsible ways to treat talent, a lot to improve for the HR Directorate: professionalism and transparency"
says"Robotic management style at every level"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Hosting a lot of old TV formats that are coming to the end of their live cycles (x-factor, talent, idols). Missed completely bringing in new formats for years, a complete strategic failure. HQ bureaucrats bringing themselves up more than saving the business and regardless of business itself. Getting "on board" with their latest policies proved too much for integrity and honesty. New Group CFO is lame duck with service attitude, but no ability to stand for anything. International mobility reserved only for those serving in London."
says"Management are hands off and disinterested."
says"Here in Brazil the time of shooting is minimum, everyone work by contract no guarantees whatsoever – the least time they can do it, the least the show will cost. Exploitation is the name of the game. If you dare to complain, you are out. Almost all production companies work like this over here."
Current Employee - Finance says"Salary should be better for the size of the company, promotions scarce - even if chased, no internal postings for open positions. Very little involvement in the shows produced i.e. no posting of tickets for AGT, nothing on Idol, no screenings of American Gods. It's the little things that make the day."
Current Employee - Travel Coordinator says"Over worked under paid. No work home life balance."
Intern (Former Employee) says"Few, monotone tasks were handed out and no help was needed if one asked. Some co-workers were forthcoming, some preferred a demeaning treatment of the lower staff. Clean office, snack barpay, work atmosphere"
Social Media Content (Former Employee) says"A pesar de haber aprendido muchas cosas, algo a mejorar es la comunicación."
