      Pros

      Great company, good people to work with. Lots of growth that can happen based on how well you do of course. Put the work in and you'll do great at the company.

      Cons

      If you start at the company low, it's hard to negotiate salaries and seems you have to leave the company and come back to renegotiate.

      Pros

      Decent pay, ok work hours, stayed at this job for so many years because it pays the bills.

      Cons

      Optional overtime does not feel like overtime if it's borderline encouraged and everyone else does it. And you never know until it's last minute until you will keep your job for a next project. You will likely be replaced by a hungry fast working Junior seems like a trend.

      Pros

      The pay was decent and I never had to fear my check would not arrive.

      The projects were generally uninteresting and the life of the company drained during my time there.

      Pros

      Artists are able to be creative with their work, attend most of the client/director reviews, and always be kept in the loop with what's going on.

      Cons

      Sometimes they give your shots to other artists because things aren't always distributed evenly.

      Pros

      Great projects, good pipeline, a lot of opportunity to learn and grow. Doing some of the best + most interesting work in the industry.

      Cons

      Artist management is manipulative and poorly managed. High burnout rates, below industry wages, seniors flushed out for the next round of juniors every few years. Upper management foster a cold corporate environment.
