      Current Employee, more than 3 years

      I've worked here for 4 years. Not a place I would return to.

      Pros

      Great team. Some good projects. Good facility. Some nice people here and there.

      Cons

      lies fed to employees in studio meetings. big projects turned away because it doesn't fit the brand. Artists and production staff let go from team to make a higher margin. Urinals always overflowing. Food truck operators caught sharing homophobic ideology still scheduled by studio. More craft service people than actual artists at this point. Off-site parking 20 to 30 minutes away depending on train crossing or traffic. Not many food options close by.

    9. 2.0
      Former Employee, more than 5 years

      Lost its way

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Geniunely nice people, but fewer than there used to be as many have left/retired.

      Cons

      -Very low wages. -Poor management, planning, HR & artist management, and use of capital. -No one in management positions of any department stays for long (see: 'Very low wages') and those that are left are unqualified to do the job, leaving many projects and areas of responsibility with poor direction if any. -Very slow to deal with anything financial. Frustrating having any contract/benefits/raises/purchases questions answered, expect massive heel dragging regardless of situation or need.
