    Pros

    LAUNCH is making a difference in Chattanooga, bringing opportunities to underserved communities where few opportunities for entrepreneurship exist. It is a flexible job, and working from home every once in a while is possible.

    Cons

    Slightly disorganized, no benefits, difficult to get a promotion.

    I worked at Launch as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work here can be consistent. Always stuff to work on. They usually paid for lunch.

    Cons

    There was always stuff to work on, even on weekends and Holidays. The higher ups did not consider this an issue. They didn't really consider bringing in more computers and hands to work on projects and hoped that everyone who was there would be able to work OT. They go through a lot of artists and about half the people I know in the industry have had some experience with them. There never seemed to be enough artists on hand to work on spots. The Creative Directors were spread thin. Producers had to fight to get artists to work on their spots. Lead animators never had enough help. Animators were swapped often to other spots. Modelers were often swamped with the amount of characters and props they needed. Artists were put in the Mocap stage to work with poor lighting (very bad for the eyes). Lunch was paid for, but it was looked down upon to take 30 minutes to eat and stretch.
    Bottom line, I felt miserable working here. Things might have changed, but I'm not sure by how much. I've also heard similar stories, so it wasn't just me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to have a large amount of work, you might want to expand instead of putting all that pressure on your artists. It would seem that you need to be flexible and collapse the staff, but if you continue to grow, renting more space and hiring more hands would make everyone happy.

    Pros

    The people here are amazing. Very supportive and friendly. They feed you lunch most days and the work is consistent.

    Cons

    Though the work is consistent, sometimes there is too much. Many late nights and weekend work.
