    Friendly and positive workspace with decent projects. helpful staff and they welcome juniors as well as seniors. managers are also talented artists themselves so they understand how the workflow is.

    Pros

    S'mores (DOG) R8 and donuts

    Cons

    Working at Pixomondo was one of my worst experiences in my entire career. From the facility, to the people and to the so called "Pipeline". Everything at the studio in Toronto was a mess. The building was so dirty and the people had no idea how to speak to each other. Leads were vulgar and demeaning. People were just horrendous. The only thing going for them in Toronto is Star Trek, if it wasn't for that project they would shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Close it down

    "Coordinator"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The only positive aspect of this company is being able to work with talented artist that are suffering from working with the horrible and greedy company with you.

    Cons

    Abusive management, low pay, extremely long hours, no benefits, filthy work environment/equipment. Old software, equipment is never working and IT doesn’t have enough time to fix it so this becomes another task for coordinators. No PA’s.
