    I have been working at Bardel Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Ample opportunity to work on many diverse, fun projects with big name companies.
    -Engaging and personable immediate leadership. (Leads/Supervisors)
    -Willing to teach
    -Amicable atmosphere on floor with artists
    -Studio located in a great location (Kelowna)

    Cons

    -Mismanaged production schedules put considerable pressure and stresses on artists.
    -Tight production schedules doesn't leave room for artists to practice, learn and grow.
    -Miscommunications on past projects between production and artists/leads/supervisors lead to negativity. However, Bardel has learned from those missteps and seems to be doing better.

    Advice to Management

    -Be Transparent
    -Fight for the artists
    -Work with us from the trenches, your example speaks volumes.
    -Be realistically optimistic. You don't have to be smiling all the time, but be realistic about the situation while optimistically seeking solutions.
