      Pros

      -Good learning experience: This depends on the position, but if you are willing to, you can learn lots of things in work and quite fresh industry experience. -Friendly co-workers: Most people are quite helpful and trying to work together. -Lots of events: This is a bit tricky one, but sometimes there is really good experience learning opportunity or good offer deal in purchasing some stuff like cintique or furniture. Overeall=4.5 out 5. This company is still a way ahead, but definitely awesome place for junior~intermediate artists. Good place to start or stay while you are learning about the industry. Most importantly, they don't treat you like a replaceable man power, like some local companies do. I felt like they actually care about you.

      Cons

      - Some sloppy management on pre-production or human resource - Some poor work environment: This depends on which project you work, but if you are unlucky enough, you might be working in place shady or smelly like gollum's cave.

      Pros

      Atomic actively helped me with moving towards the job I wanted, salary pay which I could negotiate at each contract, 2 weeks paid Christmas this year, 10 sick days? I believe, it's a good place

      Cons

      The benefits plan is a 700& max coverage so if you have expensive medications it's not the best health plan but I've made it work for my needs

      Pros

      Supportive Management. Great location. Takes lots of initiative to correct any workplace issues.

      Cons

      Nothing to do with the company, but the animation industry overall struggles with communication, budgets, and deadlines with clients that have no idea how quality animation is made.

      Pros

      Professional, caring HR staff, less corporate BS than DHX, and seems like they want to give as much freedom and flexibility to artists as they can manage.

      Cons

      Haven't really encountered any major cons yet, though like many animation studios I hear of animators and board artists having to work long hours during crunch time. Thankfully as a designer I don't get hit with those negatives too often. Also, benefits are not as competitive as larger Animation firms, but they are working on improving them as they grow.
