    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.
