    Great Work Life Balance!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFriendly company, talented artists and nice environment. Good pipeline and tools. Compared to the rest of the industry the working hours are very well managed and the artists are looked after

    ConsWish that the Freelance contracts were longer rather then extended piece meal at the end of a show

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to value the work life balance as this makes a big difference to those of us that have been burnt out at other facilities and makes Cinesite a nice place to be

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A small shop in a flat-lining industry

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome good people in a good (probably soon to be vacant) building. Central location. Decent work-life balance. Pay scale within range for the industry and city.

    Good place to gain some short-term experience in the industry.

    ConsThe industry is flat, and declining in London. Commercial pressures are causing work to move off-shore, mainly to the far-east or Canada. It is no fun to work for a company which is smaller than it was 10 years ago, and getting smaller all the time.

    Long-serving top management have shown little or no ability to turn around company fortunes. Repeated attempts to develop animation capabilities have failed. Management actively encourages infighting amongst staff, because 'the cream will rise to the top'.

    A missed opportunity to get the bast from staff.

    Lighting TD (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsArtists were great to work with
    and gave 100% to projects
    Money and location was very good

    ConsSenior management was diabolical, psychotic and paranoid
    2 to 3 people have been allowed to run Cinesites once great reputation into the ground.
    Clients just don't want to know anymore.
    Working practices were archaic and nepotism ruled the day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
