    I have been working at Method Studios full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Method is a good company to work with in Vancouver. I do not work in Montreal but my fellow artists tell me that all Montreal vfx vendors are expanding in Montreal. This happening while we are seeing some shops sizing down a bit in Vancouver.

    Cons

    The "race for the rebates" is continually in full swing. The trade off is that Vancouver lifestyle is very nice. The rental prices are sky-high in Vancouver while the rental prices in Montreal are lower. The big however here being the provincial tax is higher in Montreal so there is a bit of a wash in that respect for the cheaper housing in Montreal.

    Advice to Management

    Survive the re-org, and get investors that want to be involved in Animation & VFX.

    Cons

    - Your experience will greatly depend on the project you are on/ the supervisors you work with - No paid sick days - Team sizes sometimes too small for work load
