      I worked at MPC full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Flexible hours, Friendly people, Great projects

      Cons

      Favoritism, Constant Crunch, Lack of production structure,

      Advice to Management

      Reward Loyal employees, and offer more forms of compensation. Don't hire cheaper labor because it looks good on a spreadsheet, It'll cost you in the long run.

      Current Employee - Animator in London, England
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at MPC full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      High quality projects to add to your reel.

      Cons

      Not so much time to accomplish the quality those projects deserve. Quiet a bit of pressure that's makes you work fast and miss mistakes. Changing projects without asking.

      Advice to Management

      Artists are not objects. Ask for opinion, talk to them. Hear them. You can't promise a project and half way the contract change to something else expecting people to be quiet and accept new terms without even asking.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at MPC full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Excellent people, cool shows, nice facilities.

      Cons

      High-stress atmosphere. Not enough senior talent. Outdated scheduling and tracking. Disorganized, even hostile top level production. Uneven scheduling makes it harder to hit targets with a high level of quality. Heavy OT expected to make up for poor planning.

      Advice to Management

      Everything is fixable if the entrenched mentality can be changed.

      I have been working at MPC for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Artists working here are nice, a lot of potential in the staff and the production team (on my show at least) is also motivated and motivating. The Facility is standard and near a station. Paid x1.5 OT.

      Cons

      The pipeline here... must be the worse I have seen in my 10 years experience (where is moved to various different VFX, tv, advertising studios) . it is obsolete and is barely doing what you hope it would. Notes are lost in a swarm of emails all departments mixed, feedback are barely recorded and impossible to track you have to play detective to know what you need to do (and than when the note are not coming one day...

      Show More

      Advice to Management

      Get yourself a damn Pipeline (SHOTGUN), Stop this mess of Outlook, SpaceChat, MyPage (never up to date), etc. and other crappy in-house obsolete tools, they are not relevant.) Switch to gMail staff email addresses for people to work with, even production still works on office files not syncing on cloud...and lose work due to crashed files???..) Create relevant mail list/groups instead of spamming everyone with everything.....
