"Disappointing"22 Jul 2015

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Reel FX full-time for less than a year

Pros

Some great artists and production staff

Cons

The list is long. No overtime pay accompanied by mandatory overtime hours. This is on top of already low salaries to begin with. An expressed desire to create a slate of IPs, yet ineptitude in... actually doing so. I was hired with the assurance that "we don't do contracts - we're a Texas company, so we do handshakes." Turns out their handshakes are worthless given that they completely went back on everything they told me when I was hired.

Advice to Management

The place has all the potential in the world. Consider treating your artists and production staff well, listening to them when they offer their thoughts, putting appropriate focus on proper IP... development, and you might be able to pull it together.
