    I worked at Halon Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Projects are fun. Producers have their acts together. They are respectful and realistic about over time, and also follow the laws regarding overtime.

    Cons

    If you're not a white dude be prepared to field some jokes about it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to build a more respectful environment between the artists.

    I worked at Halon Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are really cool. Lost of good teams and projects to work on when busy. Bar B que Lunch once a month. Pay for parking. Health insurance if there long enough. layed back vibe with cool office building.

    Cons

    Dont know what's going to happen next when jobs end, left guessing. Weak communication. No training help. Dealing with quarters for parking is a bit of a pain but okay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving, it's a good place, fun to be there.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on film industry's top projects with the best talents. Chance to learn and grow in your field of animation, effects, cinematography, editing, shot design.

    Cons

    Often requires long hours during crunch time. Commitment to projects could conflict with personal time. But they still offer flexibility as much as possible.

    Advice to Management

    While it is great to work on prestigious projects, I think it's time to look more into the self-generated content creation as well.
