    Pros

    Mainframe is really diverse and full of people that love what they do. The environment was great to work in and people were really supportive and active to make each project easy and fun to work on.

    Cons

    If you want to work on other shows inside the company, it can be difficult to switch even if there is an opening in your current job title.

    Pros

    -Nice people for the most part. -On some shows it would be a good place for juniors to learn and experiment. -In a nice location, but not so great for transit.

    Cons

    -Unpaid overtime on some productions. -Poor equipment/hardware. -Not using the latest software. -Projects. -Budgets. -Lack of viable public transit, the bus route is packed beyond being reasonable. -Low pay, and raises are usually a battle. -Always felt like the company might be in danger of closing. It has more lives than a cat.
