    It's a cult

    Pros

    Occasional opportunities for exposure to real, known names within the industry.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations in consistently shocking and previously inconceivable ways. Examples from a mere 4 months of experience include sexual coercion, animal cruelty and human rights and employment violations. Hierarchy is deeply entrenched within the management culture, so if you are fairly low on the ladder, they have zero qualms with systematically gaslighting you till you believe you have no real worth or other options but to unquestioningly comply with any demands placed on you.

    Pros

    Avant-garde approach to everything produced; attention to detail; high quality artworks produced. I have met some of my best and life long friends here. Great if you are interested in philosphical or more abstract concepts. Great if you like to be challenged by the odd conundrum and problem solving mission. They had yoga classes for staff sometimes twice a week in the mornings.

    Cons

    Long hours are a downside if you are not interested in the work being produced

    Pros

    - Very little accountability (until suddenly there is) - Occasionally very smart and interesting colleagues - Totally unbelievable material -- certainly impressive in its scope and often somewhat interesting / hilarious, though in equal measure tedious, offensive and traumatising - You literally never know what might happen next

    Cons

    - Hierarchy - Not only no possibility of mobility within the company, but no possibility of getting anything done at all - No one will tell you what it is they actually want in a particular piece of work but expect you to keep guessing ad infinitum - Many very unpleasant members of management (insofar as you can call it that)

    Pros

    Erm, nice location. Some people are nice

    Cons

    Where do I start. A joke of a company with a complete joke of a finance function. A culture of bullying and intimidation

    Pros

    The people are mostly nice, but the upper management are just enablers of the owner's insane "auteur" demands.

    Cons

    The recent news reports about this place are all true. Money's terrible No prospect that anything will get finished
