    I have been working at Imageworks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The facility fosters and encourages creativity and innovation of the highest caliber. Imageworks is home to some of the greatest minds in the industry.

    Cons

    The only cons are recent, with opportunities of advancement only being available in Vancouver. (Imageworks' new HQ has been announced as being there now.) For someone that's not able or willing to relocate, this can be an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping core talent is essential the overall operation of the company. Though outsourcing is initially cheaper, new talent mistakes will nullify any benefits, and become more expensive in the long run if they don't deliver.
