    Pros

    Good company, growing and still open to employee opinions. One of the only places for Stopmotion animation in the US. Has both commercial and feature divisions. LAIKA is very open to trying new situations and new technologies. Coraline was it's first feature film, and the success of that film is based on the hand-picked individual artists that work to create the assets, and they were given room to showcase their talents. This is a company that values that sort of talent. Innovative and willing to grow.

    Cons

    Not the best at managing resources, communication and decision making. Human Resources department is still working out some of the bugs in communicating about lay-offs and when the actual end date is. Managers on the highest level just underwent a change and assigned a very seasoned producer (award winning) to become President, this should help alleviate some of the previous issues.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions in a timely fashion. Communicate with employees.
