    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Mac Guff

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere, long history in the VFX industry (25 years+). It's a nice place to learn and experiment. Nice location near Eiffel Tower and Champs de Mars.

    Cons

    Lots of commercials but few feature films. Some organisation/management troubles can lead to too much pressure on employees.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Mac Guff for less than a year

    Pros

    Definitely the best feature animation studio in Europe and the only studio that can produce animation similar to Pixar or Dreamworks.

    Cons

    Vertical hierarchy little time to learn or share experience with fellow artists. Some of the junior level salaries are ridiculous low compared to the profit that the studio is making.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Mac Guff for more than a year

    Pros

    The people and the atmosphere here are really nice, the company's headquarters are well placed in the center of Paris, which is very convenient wherever you live. There are mainly good projects, with great teams.

    Cons

    Currently the French movie industry is not very flourishing, so it is sometimes difficult to get new good projects going. But you just have to be patient, or move elsewhere !
