    I worked at Village Roadshow full-time

    Pros

    You get invitations for movie premiers & receive free movie vouchers

    Cons

    IT at Village Roadshow uses a charge-back model where all development work has to go through a rigid timesheeting process. Due to this, the developers can't engage in any other activity e.g. self-learning or research as all their work has to be charged back. There is a strict 9 to 5 regime which also adds up to the frustrations. Due to all this, the morale of the whole team is really low.
