Featured Review

Former Intern - Applications Developer

I worked at Imageworks for less than a year

Pros

- friendly devs; no one is trying to gain an upper hand over another - lots of social events (unfortunately cancel b/c of covid), ex: softball rec league - good location, close to VCC station, many... lunch options - good worklife balance, never had to do OT

Cons

- dim working environment; they don't turn on their lights b/c some devs/artists require minimal lighting - working in close proximity with other devs (open-office floor design)
