    I have been working at Toneplus Animation Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many employers do not offer the flexibility and opportunities that I seek, which is why I was and continue to be so excited about the work that I perform here. I am employed as a VFX artist, I work remotely and cannot sing the company's praises enough. Not only have I learned a lot since being employed, but I feel like my voice really matters. Something that is not that common within this line of work.

    Cons

    Competitive environment otherwise I love everything here

  2. "Great Pay"

    I have been working at Toneplus Animation Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I do consider the pay quite generous in comparison to some of my former employers. Do not get me wrong, they expect you to know your stuff and work hard but the company has a really good reputation in the digital world for a reason. I would definitely recommend those seeking a career within this industry to consider this company. It has been a great experience.

    Cons

    Competition is really high here

    Pros

    For me, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I get to work with some of the tech giants within the industry, I have a great work environment that allows me to be creative and the pay is great. I have been with this company roughly for six months and I do not anticipate changing employers anytime soon.

    Cons

    If possible do more party, I love party

    The work environment itself is a friendly atmosphere and those who work there were very inviting and helpful, always willing to answer any questions that I had. I really learned a lot. Unlike some of their competing companies, I feel as though there is room for advancement and growth.

    I have been working at Toneplus Animation Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great learning environment, fast-paced but ideal if you want to immerse yourself in modern, innovative, and groundbreaking animation techniques. There's always work to be done- you can be working in one project one day and be assigned to another the next day. Clients can get pretty demanding but team leaders know how to handle things. If you are struggling with a project, there's always someone willing to help. It's a great place to master your skills

    Cons

    This is a fast-paced environment so it's not for you if you're used to a chill, laid-back working arrangement.

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

    Pros

    Great working environment, especially if you want to build a good career foundation in animation. If you last long enough you can put in for a promotion, as long as you have the chops to show for it. This is a great environment for artists who are passionate about cutting edge animation technology. The company is always looking for creative and fresh ways to deliver content to clients. Even fresh employees are tapped for ideas. Communication with management is also open and straightforward.

    Cons

    Competition can be fierce but if you are willing to put in the work you're bound to get noticed.

    I have been working at Toneplus Animation Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Young, energetic, laid-back office atmosphere when everyone is not frantically running around trying to meet deadlines. It's a very creative environment and the company is open about idea-sharing and everyone pitching in for projects. Group meetings are always opportunities for lively discussions. Benefits are great and the checks come on time. It's only been a few months but I know I would love to keep working here for a few more years.

    Cons

    Fast-paced environment and heavy workloads that can take a toll on artists

    I have been working at Toneplus Animation Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The office environment is friendly, employees have a sense of camaraderie and they're very welcoming to new hires. Training prior to full immersion is also helpful in getting our feet wet especially for those coming in straight from college. There's a vibe that promotes sharing, teamwork, cooperation. Everyone is encouraged to share input during group meetings, even the new guys.

    Cons

    There are many employees working on the same level and so many are brilliant so chances for a promotion a few years into the job can be slim.

    I have been working at Toneplus Animation Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working for TonePlus was my first gig after university and although I worked there for a little less than a year, I probably learned more there than I did in my years in school. Animation is mentally-draining work and you will bring a lot of work home but it was a fast, creative workplace that demanded top-notch performance every time, great training for a newbie. I'm glad I was working with mentors who were interested in helping the new guys get the hang of things. I've never seen that level of teamwork in any of my subsequent jobs, which is kind of sad. Overall I feel lucky that I got to see that kind of dynamic in my first ever job.

    Cons

    Fast-paced and demanding, you may need to work long hours.
