      Pros

      Good environment, maybe the best VFX studio to work as an animator in MTL

      Cons

      VFX, so you need to be willing to do some OT time to time.

      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Great for juniors / very poor salary / no real opportunity to upgrade or move into comp.

      Pros

      Very nice to learn from a great established team. The social life is super great and a lot of energy is put into making fun activities for the pnr department. Both the departement manager AND the HOD are great people. HR is genius and they really did a great job (sad to see them leave the same time as me)

      Cons

      Lowest salary in Montreal, by far, and its a known thing. They will prefer to see you leave than giving you a raise and will do everything they can to keep you in paint and Roto. They offer the ideal of moving into comp if you do a training (takes at least one year of staying at night and delivering comp shots with absolute no guarantee you'll move up) Many artist from pnr where used to deliver comp shots in crunch time and didn't get a raise or a chance to move into the "better" comp department even if you delivered full movies comp shot. The QC process is really painful in pnr at FS but this is good for new juniors since it will train them to deliver quality before quantity.

      Pros

      In my experience, they care a lot more about their employees and their progression than other places I've been. They actually take our feedback into account during reviews and try to set you up with shows that will help you achieve your goals.

      Cons

      Similar pitfalls to any major player in VFX
