Current Employee - Nuke Compositor

I have been working at Mainframe Studios part-time

Pros

awesome work/life balance, great culture

Cons

most people are paid badly, projects are boring, productions are not run smoothly/efficiently

Advice to Management

Studio almost always gets in its own way/overpromises what it can deliver. artists and projects suffer; no one seems to care.

Manager

I worked at Nerd Corps Entertainment for less than a year

Pros

You will learn. New skills and abilities. You will use your new skills and expand your range of knowledge ans you progress.

Cons

Tight schedules. Steep learning curve. Not always able to receive good input as to your progress other that your accomplished work load.
