Featured Review

Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I have been working at Mainframe Studios

Pros

Good working culture and decent work life balance

Cons

A bit disorganized at times due to the current work from home structure

KEY NOT FOUND: companyCompare.reviews.temporaryFormer - 3D Animator

I worked at WildBrain for less than a year

Pros

The studio work environment is very friendly, even under tight deadlines my team leads and managers remained kind and patient with me and the rest of the team.

Cons

I am not sure if this was an issue with upper management or the network contractors (hence nothing to do with Wildbrain itself), but often when feedback came around to the department I was in for... fixes, it was way too close to the deadline and would cause the team to have a very short amount of time to complete the fixes and they had to work a lot of overtime.
