    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at MPC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good start - Lots of projects - Good opportunity to make new friends and/or colleagues

    Cons

    - Low pay - Rare to claim full ownership of work - Politics

    Advice to Management

    Give up on hiring just juniors and promoting juniors to leadership positions when they are not ready. Hire a solid team of seniors and intermediates that can do the work and then hire the juniors. Also pay artist competitive rates instead of low-balling artist.
