    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Culver City, CA

    I worked at MPC full-time

    Pros

    They really try to make a pleasant work environment. I guess making up for years of horrible reputation in the VFX industry. -Free snacks, beverages -Nice digs -Great Culver City location -Some great people there -Good communication from leadership

    Cons

    For our smaller sized group there were some issues with personnel that they really didn't want to deal with. It seemed like they wanted to look the other way rather than confront and implement consequences. This was because the underlying soul of the company is still all about getting the work out of people rather than putting a priority on a safe, respectable work environment.

    "Great fun, hard earnings"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     in New York, NY

    I worked at MPC

    Pros

    Super fun, sociable environment. The artists are incredibly talented and are great people to learn from.

    Cons

    Hard to grow if entering a front of house, runner or entry-level position. Big wage gap between higher and lower positions.

    I worked at MPC

    Pros

    -great people -get fed on most productions -great location -beautiful facility

    Cons

    -company is awarded under bids projects, often with unreasonable time frames, then will try to figure out how to get it done at the expense of the artist. Unfortunately not an uncommon practice industry wide. -often cramped working spaces -have to pay for parking. $5-14 a day -day rate pay where you frequently work more than a 9-10hr day you charge for.

    I have been working at MPC for more than a year

    Pros

    Some really great people work here, sadly a lot of the really great ones are leaving or have already left.

    Cons

    Some really arrogant supervisors. Bad pay. No overtime for production staff. Long long hours. Last minute contract renewals and very little chance for pay raises. Disrespectful to people. Low morale. Disorganised. Client butt kissing without considering how it affects staff. Almost no work/life balance.
