      Pros

      Wellington / NZ is a nice place, great for kids to grow up Short commute Pockets of very talented and kind people Big blockbuster projects Lots of opportunities if you fit in and know the right people, or being a white American / British male. Paid OT Stay for no more than 1 year would avoid lots of politics and HR interactions.

      Cons

      Lots of politics. Long hours. Lots incompetents in management/leadership positions. Dishonest and incompetent HR People are promoted by how confident they sound, whom they are friend with, rarely by competence. No other big studios to jump to locally (unless you do it remotely) Virtually no pay rise after entering - get your entrance rate as high as possible otherwise don't expect a significant pay rise for the next 5-10 years. Latest company restructuring is just lip services, people are not changing the way they behave. Every team has different culture, every department feels like a different company. All-women-and-men-for-themselves working environment.
