    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at WildBrain full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some great people work here

    Cons

    Terrible management, My direct boss was petty, hostile, suspicious,, and lazy. She made my life difficult and terrorized many of my coworkers. She would delegate all of her work and take the credit without acknowledging the person who actually did all the work and sent it to her. Many workers had to confide is each other for support. Several complaints were filed with HR by numerous people. Nothing was ever done. Friends of mine had similar experiences with their own bosses, who would be hostile, uncooperative and vindictive.
