    Pros

    This is a really good place in terms of the quality of people on the floor. Teams are good and easy to get along with, very few egos at play here. They are very accommodating to people's real life schedules (kids, medical, etc.) The final result of the work is usually quite good and something to be proud of.

    Cons

    For whatever reason, this company struggles to consistently get work, which will hopefully change once their Montreal studio is established and they can offer that QC tax credit the studios are now after. I think this results in them taking on a lot of 911 jobs to fill the gap. As a contract worker, it can get a little dicey and contract renewals usually come right down to the wire (as in 1-2 weeks) of your end date. Can make it stressful if you are absolutely relying on the income or the employment for PR reasons. Studio is very low-frills and the desks are set up like a call centre, which makes it a little difficult to get to know people outside of your little pod. They often hold post-mortems on shows, but I am doubtful that much input from those actually on the floor, dealing with the day-to-day, is actually factored into their decisions. I feel like the mentality is "the show was delivered, no need to fix anything" and a lot of the same issues seem to carry forward from show to show.

    Pros

    Some people are nice there but mostly all selfish.

    Cons

    Worst management ever experienced. they don’t hear low level employees voice. company basically manipulated by executive level that has no management education background and no experience. It’s all depend on their personal feeling to manage people and then led to unpredictable laid off. The longer you stay the miserable and suffer you will experienced. BIG WARNING going into finance department, you will regret it.
