      Good place to learn, not so good place to grow

      1 Jun 2021 - Associate in London, England, England
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - big projects, big clients - people are really nice, there are some blown up egos but 99.9% of people you meet are super friendly and easy to work with - if you're early in your career, this is a great place to learn, you'll find yourself working on awesome, interesting and exciting projects, great place to build your CV

      Cons

      - very little career growth especially in the junior/associate roles, promotions seem arbitrary and opaque - diversity is a non-existent, unable and unwilling to address the actual structural diversity issues in the company - low base salaries with non transparent pay reviews - no company culture/values/mission, at the end of the day we are a vendor and we do what clients demand us to do

      Pros

      Wasn't in the office too long before the pandemic sent us all home. However was quickly working well with a great team and they did their best to support us all throughout the pandemic. Amazing head of production in Claire, who is very approachable and always willing to listen.

      Cons

      Started my contract a bit too early for a project which left me with very little to do for a while, not ideal when trying to impress in a new job!

      25 Feb 2021 - VFX Production Coordinator in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. The people are lovely 2. The pay for this role is competitive 3. Working from home successfully (hopefully this stays)

      Cons

      1. Long hours with people double your salary 2. Lack of training when you start in the role, some is available sporadically throughout the year but you're usually too busy to attend 3. Currently there is a huge lack of reviews (due to Covid) but every other dept seems to have brought it back, but Production only seem to be having reviews for Producers and noone lower down.
