The Croner Entertainment Survey, launched in 2013, is conducted annually for companies that produce theatrical and television content. The Survey invites participation from large film studios, smaller film studios and companies that produce entertainment content distributed in theaters, theme parks and across television and digital networks. The survey also serves the music industry.
The Croner Entertainment Survey is a benchmark compensation resource for studio production and distribution positions in the U.S. film, television and streaming entertainment industries. It includes positions at all organizational levels and reported by entertainment platform, in functions such as development, production, content producing / curation, post-production, marketing, advertising and promotions, sales and distribution, technical operations, music development and production, consumer products licensing, legal & business affairs, facilities/real estate and G&A.
Media and entertainment organizations use the Survey results to understand salary differentials to benchmark compensation; to establish job architecture, rational pay levels and pay structures; and to make informed decisions about bonus plans and equity plans.
