    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.
