    I worked at Imageworks

    Pros

    Culver city is cool, the people on my team were great. Lots of things to do when they are buzy. They pay lots and you work sick overtime.

    Cons

    They are firing everyone and moving to Canada, the people at the top are completely out of touch with the workers, and the schedules are horrible

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing your top artists, and move back to LA before everyone has left the area or the industry. Pretty soon no one will come when you need to hire senior people

    I worked at Imageworks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good tools, used to be in LA, Culver city is a great place to have lunch

    Cons

    They liquidated all of the jobs they could and moved thier headquarters out if the country. With the insane rents in Vancouver it makes more sence to just stay here and go into VR or video games. Vfx is a sinking ship that Sony is doing thier best to put at the bottom of the ocean.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off your top employees, and trying to save pennies. If you want to make money at feature animation or vfx you have to actually do good work, and that cost money, and requires real veteran artists
