What is health insurance like at Mainframe Studios?

Pros

- Good Location (when we worked in studio) - Decent projects - Stable employment, there are lots of TV series in production, with more on the way, many people have been with the studio for years - The studio keeps growing so there are a number of opportunities for advancement - The studio is getting more and more ambitious with the TV series they are producing, and thus the quality level the animation continues to improve - Competitive pay, a bit on the lower side - There are some health benefits - Decent place to learn and grow

Cons

- Mainframe’s biggest weak point is - pre production… Very little is ready when a new project launches into full-production, and thus fundamental framework doesn’t get put in place until way late in the production... if ever. - Management appears to be applying old templates from previous basic projects and applying them to new much more ambitious and complicated projects. --- Expecting artists to deliver advanced materials in the same amount of time the studio previously delivered something basic. - Lots of talk about the studio burning out their crew on all the newer projects. (Barbie projects being the exception as they have had more than a decade to streamline things and build up resources)

Advice to Management

- Invest more time in pre production, so your projects have a stronger foundation to work off of. - Schedules and resources need to evolve with your ambitions - Avoid burning out your crew

There are some health benefits
