    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at MPC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People. OT meals. Nice work environment

    Cons

    There's people getting laid off every month with only 1 week notice. They don't respect contracts, I had 1 year contract got laid off after 5 months because there wasn't enough work. Most of the time you are expected to deliver feature film shot quality in your first render stage. Salary is very low, is not worth it. OT crazy hours, 70+ in crunch times.

    Advice to Management

    I would fire the guy or team in charge of getting projects instead of laying off 40+ artists just because "there's not enough work".

    I worked at MPC full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    - The talented crew - The positive vibe of the studio - The willingness to share ideas and methodologies - Junior artists are given responsibility, but have solid backup from seniors helping them grow. - Good communication between 2D and 3D department - Management’s willingness to cultivate creativity and openness - Free snacks

    Cons

    - Unpaid overtime as staff - Some projects have schedules that aren’t completely thought through, resulting in a lot of overtime for those projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open door policy you currently have, make sure to keep listening to feedback from the artists and make sure schedules are though through all the way. Artists are the ones paying with their time in the end.
