Featured Review

Former Contractor - Senior FX Artist

I worked at Imageworks for less than a year

Pros

A nice big company, so all the corporate perks, discounts, healthcare, holiday, sick leave etc. the pipeline and projects and great, plenty of support from other departments, and the setup is pretty... slick.

Cons

It's always harder in a large studio to get the social side working, which was tough, but they do put on lots of events, and activities to try and help that in fairness.

HR is very friendly and helpful. Studio has many social events to keep people connected. They care about their employees

Cons

Production tracking software can be a bit slow, loading times may intervene with work at certain times of the day, but not always
