    Pros

    Great people. Interesting project. Plenty of food and events happening if that is important.

    Cons

    Short term hiring. Ramp up with alot of artist and then "until next time". Again, for some people, this may be a pro.

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

    Pros

    - Great people - Innovative history - Good pay and benefits - Free snacks and coffee

    Cons

    - Super cold and impersonal workplace - Projects are all regurgitations (sequels) and not very exciting - Management doesn't really go out on the floor and mingle with the people - Very corporate - Bad attitudes in employees isn't dealt with, but rather poked fun at, instead of making the hard decisions to get in better people

    I worked at Imageworks

    Pros

    Imageworks was a fun place to work. There were long hours at times, but great people. I would gladly work there again.

    Cons

    The long hours, as mentioned above, could be tiring at times. But they did their best to always minimize the impact.

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

    Pros

    The culture is fantastic and I met a lot of great people/friends.

    Cons

    The leadership seems clueless at times and has somewhat falsified information in the past to keep employees around, only to move their positions a few months later. Not willing to negotiate yearly, and/or negotiation time is ambiguous and no direct conversation about compensation after moving from temp to full-time. There was little to no training when bringing people "up-to-speed" before being thrown into the 'fire'.
