    I worked at Iloura for more than a year

    Pros

    Iloura has the best people. A fact i'd largely attribute to Magdalena (the hiring manager). She seems to hire around a specific ethos and builds teams that aren't just talented - but also gel really well in a work environment. I've worked with great people, but Iloura had a team that made it awesome to come into work every day. Transparent management, talented people

    Cons

    Like most VFX studios, contracts can only be extended based on the work coming into the studio - which occasionally leads to some chaotic contract scenarios.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Iloura for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall friendly co-workers Good location Decent projects Competetive saleries

    Cons

    To much of an old boys club-environment with bad humor. Some of the managers lacked social skills which had an impact on the work-atmosphere. Supervisors should take a course in friendly communication instead of punching downwards. The way they approach people can come off as quite rude and ignorant. Contract lengths very unclear. There is a very clear us & them mentality between permanent staff and contractors.

    I worked at Iloura full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Iloura is in a good area with nice cafes. Great film and tv projects. Great professional atmosphere. Good salary, offered the standard for VFX animators but they were willing to negotiate, paid for my return flights stay at a nice hotel for the first 6 weeks.

    Cons

    Small studio which means short contracts but with flights and relocation paid for theres no complaints here except artists should be told whether they will be extended or not sooner.

    I worked at Iloura for less than a year

    Pros

    The company ethos is one that is geared to having a positive work environment. The supervisors have a good sense of how to manage people. In fact, they quite seem to like people. They also come from a long background in the VFX business so they know how things go and make good decisions in the process of getting a project out the door.

    Cons

    Unless having too much fun is a con, I have none. Or if you don't like to be around happy people.
