    I worked at Framestore full-time

    Pros

    Framestore is an amazing place to work for. The Management team is great, very fair, very straight and trustworthy. The work produced is usually excellent. The crew is great and the culture of the company is very healthy.

    Cons

    The whole industry runs on a shoestring and this shows at Framestore with the wages and contract being tightly managed. Saying this it is still possible to do well for people who put extra effort in the work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going !

    I worked at Framestore full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Loved working at Framestore - always thought I would be there forever but life happens. Process and pipeline throughout the office is solid and easy to pick up. People are friendly and passionate for visual effects. There didn't seem to be too much of a divide to upper management and they were accessible if needed. Many people have started from runners and stayed throughout their career which is always a good sign.

    Cons

    Job description was a little too fluid for my liking. Pay was too low for the hours required but office culture and vibe made up for that.

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with industry experts and see movie magic happen. Plenty of time to study and work on your own projects.

    Cons

    Interns are often left to their own devices with little to do.

    I worked at Framestore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One of the best vfx companies I've worked at in London. Lots of talented staff to learn from for both new and experienced artists. You'll be working on high end effects for the latest hollywood films.

    Cons

    Like all vfx companies there are a lots of deadlines to hit and there can be long days. Quite a heavy workload for senior staff.
