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

    Pros

    Relaxed culture; dress code Interesting and varied projects Individually nice and passionate people

    Cons

    Totally disorganised Lack of management and oversight from the top down Lack of actual, quantifiable policy and procedure for dealing with employee issues or queries People with no demonstrable skill or ability seemingly in roles of responsibility No one is accountable or takes responsibility for actions Projects are completed through a culture of bullying and bad people management. Many people are young that they don't know any better and think they have to put up with it. Older people have been in the industry so long they are part of that culture and it's been normalised.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to get into the VFX Industry in London and Great shows.

    Cons

    I want to warn everybody who is planning to join this company. Expect lots and lots of (unpaid) overtime. (Think about 70 hours a week) Very rude and unhuman behaviour from producers and supervisors. Making people get burned out easy and replace them with fresh blood within a blink. Feels like working in a factory instead of a creative environment.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop bid on shows with added overtime.
