    Pros

    Good working environment, expansion and development happening

    Cons

    Their facilities are okay for a small office, but not the fancy coffee machines you might be used to.

    Pros

    Good projects, great team. Possibility to learn and contribute. Relocation allowance includes flight and 2 weeks in a hotel.

    Cons

    Not my case, but I had colleagues that had bad experiences dealing with upgrading title. You don't have extra benefits. If you travel alone relocation is fine, otherwise all the expenses are on your own.

    cheap sweatshop

    Pros

    After five full minutes of rumination I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Be wary before letting them drag you to Australia. They might gloss over the cost of living to give you a low ball offer. Also, the office is dirty, and during my time, they refused to run the A/C during blistering summers (too expensive) or buy enough toilet paper.

    Pros

    Talented artists, fairly artist friendly environment. Good range of projects.

    Cons

    Overbloated and overbearing production with suffocating micromanagement. But that's a common theme in this industry.

    Sweat shop of note, hierarchical, politics!

    Pros

    Amazing pay. Excellent recruitment staff, but still waiting for tax return a year later. Left me high and dry.

    Cons

    Brutal, nasty HOD in 2D & comp. RSP will work you to death, 6 times a week, 15 hours a day. The former head of 2D (now at a nearby studio) especially, was cold, robotic and manipulative. The fact that he had clear favourites didn't help my motivation either. Still waiting for tax return a year later. I had to pay double tax in my country!

    Who runs this place?

    Pros

    For the most part my fellow artists were great to work with. Kind, knowledgeable, patient. Some of the work that individuals create is amazing.

    Cons

    Doing low budget Chinese films that nobody will ever see. The production team are clueless! The management around production is terrible. Lots of politics. If you want to last, you need to make friends in high places, kiss butt and play along with the inane ideas of upper production management. They have lost A LOT of older staff. Very few people stick around at RSP. There is a high burnout rate.
