    I worked at MPC for more than a year

    Pros

    Cool movies you get a chance to work on, amazing and talented people, especially in London. MPC London is amazing. Hard work, could be long hours, but still it is much nicer environment and people.

    Cons

    The worst place I have ever worked at. Particullary MPC Montreal. Key artists are really not Key artists and thanks to insecure people with low skill who somehow got to be Key artists and who brag about how much they are earning to those who are on $37 000 / year, which creates this weird competitive environment of who is ''better'' and who is ''worse''. Negotiation almost does not exist, you are either artist or Key artist, the difference between those 2 positions is $20 000 and if you try to ask for more, apparently it is not possible unless you are senior or you are being promoted (which doesn't guarantee you will get more money). This studio is not looking for a quality as much as quantity. Paid overtime is worth only if you are earning a good salary because after tax in Montreal, it really is not almost not worth it. Getting answers from HRs is something absolutely impossible. Production does not really communicate with you, same as the organisation often gets very crazy and it forces people to stay crazy long hours.
