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

    Pros

    Terrific support and comfort, felt very enabled to do the highest possible quality work. Working with Genndy and Alan H was an excellent and memorable experience, will inform and inspire my personal projects for years to come. Very professional and organized Production team helped us finish with very high quality and without a deadline crunch.

    Cons

    Privacy and productivity of desk size/arrangement comes at the cost of less direct social contact.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
