      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.
