      Good culture, friendly people, repetitive work

      Pros

      My co-workers were fun to work with and I am still good friends with some of them to this day Free breakfast if you arrive early. Free lunch if you work through the lunch hour. Free dinner if you stay late to work. Every Friday at 5pm they had "Beer O'Clock" All the beer and wine you can drink You can very quickly move up in ranks. One of my Supervisors started out as a junior then got to supervisor in 1 year. Many people move up very fast.

      Cons

      A few of us found the job too repetitive. Very outdated software. The Linux version was outdated, the 3D apps were outdated, the inhouse tools were outdated. Even the email client that we used was outdated. The pipeline takes months to learn because of all the proprietary software. Even the messaging app is proprietary. I don't know why they didn't just use Slack or Microsoft Teams of Google Chat

      Pros

      Relocation Assistance Big projects (if you're lucky to get credited)

      Cons

      They don't really care about you, they won't put you by people on your own team, they generally wont support you as a human being or check in with you, overall the company was not a good experience for a junior artist.
