    Pros

    - A history in visual effects worth being proud of. - Compensation is roughly in line with the standard.

    Cons

    - Backstabbing, political environment. - Carrots waved in front of employees with no intention of following through. - Ancient, frustrating pipeline. - There seems to be a gung-ho attitude by senior staff members that we can burn through newer contract workers by brute forcing everything as opposed to careful planning and organizing your core business efficiently. - No interest in advancing the pipeline towards...

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear sense of direction of your visual effects business. Address the political issues. Modernize your pipeline. You can't live off your history forever, understand that your reputation is being tarnished by allowing a festering back-stabbing environment to thrive, and the best artists are actively avoiding your company.

    Pros

    Interesting and exciting tech with potential: VR, MR, AR, etc.

    Cons

    A mess of a company. Severe lack of leadership and direction that is reflected in the code base and the product. A mentality of reinventing the wheel and the grass is always greener, especial if the grass is some shiny new technology. Projects are littered with a zoo of frameworks, new ones incompletely replacing old ones, so you are left with a patch work quilt that is brittle and not able to be maintained. Toxic...

    Advice to Management

    Focus! Stop jumping from "priority" to "priority" as that effectively makes nothing a priority. Commit to producing quality code that is well tested and maintainable. Be honest with your employees. Take company culture seriously, and work towards earning back trust.

      Pros

      Full of great people, artists, great projects, historical and iconic in the business. I felt much pride and fun working there.

      Cons

      Management needs to get things organized at times. The facility isn't the best. Since bankruptcy, there are no free drinks or snacks.

      Advice to Management

      There is not much I can say to them. They are great people. Just the horrible nature of the business makes things not good.

        Management are awful at dealing with core issues and complacent staff

        Advice to Management

        Keep hold of the good team members and cut loose the unproductive ones. Talk to and listen to the artists on the ground doing the actual work. You are nothing without them.
