      Pros

      Lots of talented co-workers and enthusiasm to deliver great work. Decent benefits package especially for an employer in the VFX industry.

      Cons

      Failure to embrace objective evidence based decision making. Many decisions were clearly politically motivated. Tolerance for poor, anti-social and autocratic behavior from members of the leadership team. Only those voices that are in close proximity to senior leadership are heard.
