    I worked at Animal Logic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working at AL, cannot recommend it enough. The social environment is positive and inspiring, the facility is beautiful, clean and well maintained, with an outdoor roof patio area for lunches or beer Friday time. They bring in free lunches every other Thursday and free breakfast every Friday. They even have an artist management team that checks in with you periodically to ask about your over all career goals at the company and offers ways to help you get there. Even after my contract ended, they continued to take care of me by sending my resume and reel out to other companies with their reverse recruitment program, and I started getting interviews right away, before I had even begun job hunting on my own. I appreciate that so much!

    Great projects, great people, great place to work.

    Cons

    We had to work some Saturdays during crunch time. There was rather alot of OT toward the end of the project, but I think that's become an industry standard unfortunately, and not really specifically a problem of this company.

    Pros

    The talent is great, and nice people to whether with

    Cons

    No room to grow, don't expect high raises.. If any. Get in high! Because that's all you'll get. Too many production people. Unecessarry .

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on production cost and give it to the artists who really deserve it

    Pros

    Flexible hours and a large enough team to support the studio infrastructure. I actually feel like I have the support of my team and managers.

    Cons

    The communication between the locations in Sydney, Vancouver, and LA is still a work in progress. No clear indication on what to expect in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate changes to all sites before they are made. Clean up the lines of communication to clarify the path of escelation.

    I worked at Animal Logic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seems fun and simple yet nice staff perks like nice coffee machine, breakfast, beer friday and pastry thursday AM.

    Cons

    Work life balance doesn't exist - long hours 8-6 and no paid break. This adds up to quite a bit when calculated hourly over a year and salaries don't match this.

    Advice to Management

    normal working hours and work from home - need work life balance

    Animal know how to take care of their staff, with many staff events and a fully functioning catering kitchen!

    Cons

    Long term work outlook is per contract, thus reasonably volatile as expected.
