    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at The Mill for less than a year

    Pros

    This is the place to be if you want to work in a prestigious VFX company.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, nonexistent work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Respect people's time. If you really appreciate their hard work and commitment pay them better, don't just keep them happy with "free" food.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at The Mill full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and talented professionals around you, lots of smiles and team spirit. You proud to be there, you feel special and achieved.

    Cons

    In reality you have no time to live life. The low pay balances it out since you have no time to spend the money. Highest pressure you can think of. Behind the smiles - greedy management that makes sweep every 3-4 months getting reed of 5-6 people and hiring new ones. Don't get used to people around you - the may not be there next week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy and do some charity work. The company is always busy, but this strangely has no affect on hard workers in the office (well, negative yes)

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at The Mill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Mill is a wonderful place to work and call home. Amazing staff, collaborative, and efficient management team. Fast-paced/self-guided work. Great company values. Everyone in the management position is an expert communicator. These people became my family.

    Cons

    Occasional emails/phone calls that are extremely sensitive and need to be taken care of at inopportune times. However, the benefits of being flexible were always worth it.
