      Pros

      I had the opportunity to work with a lot of great people in some really nice offices. The hours are long and the deadlines are tight, but they try to keep employees comfortable. Had some great managers and learned a lot!

      Cons

      Long hours, but that seems to be pretty typical for the post-production industry
