      Pros

      Great opportunities to evolve, artists are very good, good salary and projects are getting better every time.

      Cons

      Leadership isnt the best. Higher management tends to hire friends that arent great at the job. Its creating some frustration because these people end up in leadership position but are not qualified for it.

      Great company, great team

      Pros

      Talented and friendly team. The company is big enough to work on interesting and challenging projects, but not too big and you feel you can have your say and have a meaningful impact.

      Cons

      Not being as big as other visual effects companies means to you have slightly less wiggle room should the projects get delayed or require new artists. That said, that is true everywhere else, the puzzle is slightly more complicated to put together.

      Pros

      Great benefits that include Personal Health days (accumulated and taken without notice) and Mental Health Hour to be taken biweekly. Good work culture with mandatory social workshops that support BIPOC and LGTBQIA+ community. A lot of support for artists from both HR and supervisor/leads.

      Cons

      Slightly difficult pipeline and steep learning curve however expected at a feature film studio.

      Pros

      Super duper cool VFX Animation supervisor. This guy's awesome. Great team. The pipeline (once setup... which can take some weeks) is really good and solid. The physical Studio is ok, not super fancy but pretty nice place and clean (yeah talking about a "life before Covid" experience). The Feature Animation floor and team is great also. The events are awesome (Halloween, Christmas parties...) They have one Bonzzani and two American style soccer tables!! A pool table...

      Cons

      nothing's perfect but I don't see anything I can complain about.
