    I have been working at Framestore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. The people are lovely 2. The pay for this role is competitive 3. Working from home successfully (hopefully this stays)

    Cons

    1. Long hours with people double your salary 2. Lack of training when you start in the role, some is available sporadically throughout the year but you're usually too busy to attend 3. Currently there is a huge lack of reviews (due to Covid) but every other dept seems to have brought it back, but Production only seem to be having reviews for Producers and noone lower down.
