    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Volta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family style work environment with emphasis on artistic growth. Having Cintiqs largely compensate the slow performance of computers and lack of investments in softwares.

    Cons

    Salary as low as half of industry's standard. They attract talented artists by promising AAA projects but projects are usually low-profile. Very little investment in training and technology. They lay off great artists for obscure reasons. Hire too many junior artists.
