    Pros

    Meet people from all different backgrounds. Basically run your own shop like a business owner.

    Cons

    Basepay is very low and takes years to build clientele. Some can make over 90k per year when you stay long enough which is good.

    New Management is tough

    Pros

    Nice artists. There are a lot of talented people in the building. Saw a couple of runners get brought up into artist positions, which was rare.

    Cons

    The new management team and the merger hurt the company's culture a lot. Some of the supervisors said some really things that put me off to sticking around longer. Very stuck in their ways of this is how we have always done it, so this is how we're going to do it. Work/life balance was way out of sync of what it should be. The work isn't the most important thing in the world, but management seems to make everything feel like it is. Sometimes it's really not high art, sometimes it really is just a car commercial or insurance commercial and the creatives really like to try and put their twist on all of it. A lot of the work could have been made simpler.

    Yes and no but mostly no.

    Pros

    Good if you can negotiate a good contract. Overtime is under-control and paid. The benefits are REALLY better than industry average for staff member. The local CG management and team leads are competent.

    Cons

    This is a global company with a lot of inefficiencies especially on their global pipeline/projects conflicting with daily execution of projects. The server, infrastructure and overall poorly designed security affect every day work greatly (and nothing is plan to change on those parts). The HR department shine by his incompetence both locally and globally, they definitely make the studio look worst than what it is. Overall the global management is bad and probably every infrastructure/HR/scheduling issues are based on their inability to understand their own business execution ... which is a concern as an employee.
