      Pros

      People are the big big pro at Bardel, for an artist you usually end up with excellent animation on your reel and you will for sure grow, hence there is a fantastic community, the HR department and recruiting is awesome, very caring and considering the number of employees they have to deal with they are doing a great job. Depending on project it can be a positiv or challenging experience.

      Cons

      Upper managment is in transition and you can feel it.

      Pros

      Ah, Ninja Turtles TV series 2012-2017. It had its ups and downs over 5 years, but for me it was a constantly challenging, fun, learning environment with some of the best people I've worked with over 20+ years in animation. Had a blast there, 16 weeks animation/episode, bump weeks, 3 stages, solid writing, great balance of acting and action, and terrific production support will not be replicated again. Season 5 was the best, Leading Team Leo was an experience I'll never forget!

      Cons

      Some people were overworked and burned out on that project; it was extremely demanding and sometimes difficult to watch people struggle who were outside of the sphere of help.

      Pros

      Good TV experience. The shows were fun to work on. Many talented animators.

      Cons

      High quota. Seem to have some growing pains still. The budget for the shows are too low. It seems Bardel way underbid. For the quality the directors want it is not achievable.

      Unlike previous experiences at vfx or animation companies, Bardel is laid back, relaxing and I enjoy going to work every day, Never stayed later than 9pm and that was only once

      Cons
