    I worked at The Mill full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best group of people I’ve ever worked with in all my years in post. From the runners, to the production staff, the artists, engineers and tech operators to upper management, I’ve met and worked alongside amazingly talented and good people during my time there. Benefits are great and they just really took good care of all of us.

    Cons

    Technicolor acquisition casted a pall over the entire place. In that you never know when you can be laid off, when the axe swings down once or twice per year. It’s the people who are above The Mill’s upper management (Read: Technicolor suits) that one must be wary of when working there.
