      Pros

      - Great benefits. - Wonderful, creative, and polite coworkers. - Healthy work/life balance and very laid back with scheduling as long as you get your hours in. - Fun job working in a creative environment. - Low-pressure art reviews with your supervisor, unlike other studios where you pitch to a bunch of talking suits. - Small studio where you will meet and befriend everyone in the office.

      Cons

      - Company has an itchy trigger finger when it comes to layoffs. - Their only production is the Angry Birds Movie so there is no upward mobility or long-term prospects within the company. - Non-union studio.

      The Good and the Bad

      Pros

      The company has great people with a lot of talent. It feels like a startup in terms of processes and tools so it's a good way to learn and get into the nitty gritty of things. You also get some Angry Bird swag which is always a plus. From my understanding, the company has been trying to move a lot of the processes to the US which I'm sure are making things easier.

      Cons

      The HQ is located in Finland which would make it sometimes difficult to get things done given the time difference. Also, with everything so manual, it would take longer to get some things done such as reports and answers needed from the team in Finland.
