    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at MPC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Insanely talented artists and developers at all levels and departments. Plenty of really cool people to meet, and most people are really helpful. Beer o'clock on fridays, all the free coffee you can handle, free breakfast every morning, the studio is in a great location.

    Cons

    Senior management and production have absolutely no idea what goes on in the departments. They make ridiculously tight schedules and make promises to the clients that the artists have to keep and their attitude is basically "Well it's your problem now. Figure it out" while having no knowledge of what anything entails. You're basically just a number on a spreadsheet. Pay is absolute trash

    Advice to Management

    You can't just "throw more artists" at every problem and assume they'll be up to speed their second week.

    Current Employee - Runner in Montreal, QC

    I have been working at MPC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Being a Runner, you are promised to be able to move up in the production department around 4ish months. Still too soon to say whether that will be the case for me.

    Cons

    You are basically doing all the random tasks, cleaning common spaces, delivering lunches and packages, restocking sodas, etc. For an undetermined length of period.
