      Pros

      The engine team here in Framestore gathers some of the best Artist I ever worked with. The life in the office is absolutely amazing and stress free in my experience. Production are really caring about team members and I see my leads, not only as mentors but as genuine friends. I couldn't dream for a better place to work and grow my skills.

      Cons

      The realtime department is fairly fresh, the workflow is getting created as we evolve. Which is really exciting in a way, but sometimes it can be a bit frustrating. Overall I like the fact that I'm here when everything is getting started, exciting times !
