    I worked at Method Studios for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people who work there are really nice. Nice facilities (if incomplete as far as full resources for animators go.)

    Cons

    Weird politics. A few who clearly lack expertise but ingratiate, get promoted and end up supervising better talent (contract workers). Not a creative environment. Animators are often endlessly guessing at client (Marvel) needs rather than having them ever conveyed accurately by top level VFX sup. Resources for animators to create top level animation are slim or non-existent.
