      Pros

      Interesting projects, good people, had a decent pipeline for the time.

      Cons

      I worked at Imageworks full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Pipeline, benefits,pay are all great.

      Cons

      Culture is the biggest negative. Unfortunately all big companies with multiple locations suffer from this.

      Advice to Management

      Find better ways to keep the top tallent. Too many people get pigeon holed or disregarded due to cliques and company politics.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Imageworks full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      -Great salary, benefits, free food and fun events. -Cool projects and there's a lot of talent in one studio. -Free movie screenings.

      Cons

      -Everything seems very corporate, cold and cliquey. -The new young animators have become entitled and immature and it ends up feeling like you're in high school again. Who gets hired is based on who they know rather than pure skill. It's not about how well you perform either because they don't care about that they just care about bringing in and keeping cheap artists and those who get chummy with the leads and higher...

      Advice to Management

      Work on treating your employees better and don't treat them as just a number. Value the talent that you have rather than just using artists because they are cheap but are not qualified enough. This is no better than a sweatshop, we need some respect as an artist.
