    Pros

    Good people Most supervisors where great and VERY talented/smart Competitive pay (for contractors) Few good projects left robust kitchen with plenty of snacks and drinks

    Cons

    Kept in the dark until its too late Upper management poor communication No on site parking Sometimes takes days to set up a workstation Reluctant to change employee titles/pay raise

    Advice to Management

    What does it say when most if not all of the senior and supervisor roles are ready to leave, if they have not already?

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Method Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice facilities, some good people who are really hard working. You will learn a lot because you interact with many different departments.

    Cons

    A lot of back stabbing. Lazy management and supervisors that are only still there because they have been there so long. Company is super cheap and will pay you as little as possible while working you to the bone. Constantly extends freelancers by a month and strings people along.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers with respect and actually act for their opinions instead of sitting around and patting each other on the backs about how great you are.

    Steady place if you prove yourself. Good pay. Good people

    They don’t like criticism. They let you go the same day if they see you complain too much or get angry quickly

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pros. Don’t hire too many juniors
