    I have been working at Method Studios for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -If you do not have anything more ambitious to do with your life. This is a place. Just treat it as opportunity to see a new city, have fun and save cash before getting somewhere else where they really need you.

    Cons

    -Management will lie to you on many occasions. The only reason for they existence is to earn money and nothing else. It is one big Muppet Show out there. Do not expect nothing from them. They have no mission or purpose. They seem like frozen in a concrete unable to make any move in any direction. They wont help you. They wont make you happier or sad. They are simply hanging in the void without any emotions. -They will break rules described in a contract. They will ask you to do stuff you did not apply for. Doing work for other departments etc. -Their system simply doesn't work. Often things that can be done in 3-4 hours might take you a week. Which frustrate you everyday. After 1 week you will notice that its not a normal place to work. If you are experienced you will simply hate that place very quickly. They have no pipeline. They cannot even organize dailies properly. Pure chaos. -There are no benefits. Any. They wont help you with immigration papers, work permits, taxes, medical services etc. You are left on your own. -They allow supervisors to really do with you whatever they like. There is no control over those guys. You will be mistreated. Your leads will appear to be fearful, egoistic without skills, intelligence and proper education required for such a position. -Sometimes you will work crazy amount of overtime. Like a 2-5 months without weekend. If you will disagree they might ask you to leave. The reason for this is their lack of skills and proper planning. Also they bid projects at low costs and they know ahead of time that they will put you on overtime. Its cheaper for them to put you on overtime than employ someone to do the job. -Rotation in that company is huge. People leave and come all the time. Enjoy your friendships because they leave so quickly.
