    Former Employee - Interactive Producer in Vancouver, BC

    I worked at WildBrain full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture at the company was great and very inclusive. There was room for career growth in my department.

    Cons

    Company was quite large at the time and spread a little thin throughout the world. I understand it is leaner now.

    I have been working at WildBrain full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice location that is close to the skytrain and you can see some of the shows being made ahead of time

    Cons

    Terrible hours, archaic view of being bums in the seat and the pay isn't that competitive. It's only good if you specialize in something and can move up but otherwise this is just a good stepping stone and then move on to some place else. I have way less work life balance in the past two years.
