    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Method Studios full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Geniunely nice people, but fewer than there used to be as many have left/retired.

    Cons

    -Very low wages. -Poor management, planning, HR & artist management, and use of capital. -No one in management positions of any department stays for long (see: 'Very low wages') and those that are left are unqualified to do the job, leaving many projects and areas of responsibility with poor direction if any. -Very slow to deal with anything financial. Frustrating having any contract/benefits/raises/purchases...

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

    Pros

    -Very good at handling immigration matters, good HR service. -Nice people to work with. -Nice film projects, they have all the Marvels, although not the most interesting work.

    Cons

    -Toxic management that gets rid of the best people unless they are willing to play politics. Slow bureaucracy that gets in the way of people instead of letting them do their best. -No interest for R&D, which is a real obstacle in making them the A-player that they claim to be. -Undersized software team that can't really serve that many artists (500 artists in Vancouver for less than 20 pipeline TDs, and that is including...

    "don't work there"

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Method Studios full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Met some nice people...just before they left.

    Cons

    Massive egos, very sloppy company, low quality work. The only good artists will leave after being treated like crap. Very corporate and filled with kindergarden level politics, backstabbing, no real desire of improving quality of work at any level.

    Advice to Management

    Please grow up. Or better, leave.
