    I worked at Bardel Entertainment

    Pros

    Work with dedicated, resourceful and motivated people. Survivors, all of them. Great place for young artists to build a reel - lots of interesting and different projects.

    Cons

    Horrible pipeline across the board, not enough licenses, no overtime. Unisex washrooms are not cleaned properly and there aren't enough for the number of bodies stuffed into the studio.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously invest in building technical infrastructure so your artists aren't constantly fighting your pipeline and can concentrate on the creative.

    I worked at Bardel Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Have made many great connections - personal and professional The social atmosphere is great It was a fun place to work Colleagues really looked out for each other

    Cons

    Long hours with no overtime compensation 12 month benefit qualification period Expectations were often beyond what could be accomplished in a 40 (but more often 50-55) hour week Not enough administrative staff to carry the work load Pay was much lower than the average for similar positions in the same industry/city
