    I worked at MPC for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice team, good projects. Chance to work on different types of shots from easy and boring to very challenging shots no matter your level.

    Cons

    Except for some coordinators that are top-notch. The planning is very chaotic so you end up doing a lot of unnecessary OT. Pay is low in comparison with other studios.

    Advice to Management

    Better planning and scheduling from very early stages.

    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.

    I worked at MPC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good projects -Nice work environment -Good to get into the industry

    Cons

    I said is good to get into the industry but, is because they hire mostly junior and people they can pay the lowest salary possible. They are not open to negotiation and even moved a hole comp department to India because they can get it cheaper. You can get more money in any other place than in MPC. Artists are just numbers for them.
