    Former Employee - Nuke Compositor in Vancouver, BC

    I worked at Imageworks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Treated better than most places (which is kind of sad). Good benefits. Good projects. Work is usually high quality. Good pay for some. Most people are very nice. Tools are good. Office is a good location. Better organized than most places.

    Cons

    Very corporate. You'll likely be overworked. They have trouble winning bids because of race to the bottom nature of VFX. You'll probably get sick a lot if you're like me.
