      Pros

      Brilliant colleagues and a true sense of camaraderie. People are respectful and hard-working. Some (though not all) work can be quite interesting.

      Cons

      It's hard to get decent pay in the London office, even after several years of service, and it has got worse year after year until it compared negatively with literally any other VFX studio. It's a matter of respect when you don't even account for inflation. Senior management likes to keep many decisions secret (probably in an attempt to do damage control) but this breeds irreversible distrust in employees and a sense of career uncertainty that drives people away. In high numbers. Senior management doesn't seem to be bothered by this, however... probably part of another secret plan that doesn't concern us, regular employees.
