      Very corporate, clearly run from London Easy to get lost amongst all the staff, a bit anonymous Salary could be better, lower than comparable studios Ethos is changing, becoming more like other studios, more corporate

      Pros

      Good if you can negotiate a good contract. Overtime is under-control and paid. The benefits are REALLY better than industry average for staff member. The local CG management and team leads are competent.

      Cons

      This is a global company with a lot of inefficiencies especially on their global pipeline/projects conflicting with daily execution of projects. The server, infrastructure and overall poorly designed security affect every day work greatly (and nothing is plan to change on those parts). The HR department shine by his incompetence both locally and globally, they definitely make the studio look worst than what it is. Overall the global management is bad and probably every infrastructure/HR/scheduling issues are based on their inability to understand their own business execution ... which is a concern as an employee.
