    I worked at Animal Logic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seems fun and simple yet nice staff perks like nice coffee machine, breakfast, beer friday and pastry thursday AM.

    Cons

    Work life balance doesn't exist - long hours 8-6 and no paid break. This adds up to quite a bit when calculated hourly over a year and salaries don't match this.

    Advice to Management

    normal working hours and work from home - need work life balance

    Pros

    Very chill, deadlines are super lenient. Pipeline is also super efficient and easy to use.
    Felt like stable work. Nice people to work with.
    This is the type of place I would like to work if I was planning on settling down..

    Cons

    Detrimental as an artist due to project specificity.. Not the type of place you can really hone in on your skills (artistically or technically) unless you're on the vfx side or work on personal projects.

    Also, depends on the type of person you are and what you're looking for? But it's a hard place to make friends. Almost everyone in the department eats lunch at their desk and doesn't do friday night drinks so it definitely takes time to bond with people.

    Advice to Management

    This is the type of place that team bonding exercises are needed as the building and projects can be quite depressing to work on. It's super easy to let the work get to you, so distractions do help. This is department specific.

    Pros

    They are really interested to hear from international applicants and the benefits provided to relocate in Sydney are really good.
    They also seems to care about people and what people's ambitions and skills are.

    Cons

    Long waiting during the application process

    I worked at Animal Logic (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked on some great projects with great people. Really powerful technology. The food is good and the Thursday buffet is fun. Good chairs. My department worked fairly good hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work tough hours. Sydney is really expensive, and if you want to live near work it gets real pricy. But you don't want to live too far away on top of the sometimes long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Moving from ten to nine hour days was great, it'd be great to keep improving the work life balance thing.
