Productive and fun workplace
Production Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC21 March 2017
Working as a Production Assistant intern, I learned about the TV production pipeline and about the specific departments like Creative and Animation. The most enjoyable aspect was definitely the 'Nerd of the Week' contest, and aside from that, the studio had an awesome workplace atmosphere, pairing 'fun' with productive and efficient qualities.

Very poor work experience
Senior designer (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 February 2015
I worked at this company on two separate occasions. Both times I was forced to work in a small room with 17 other people, with no windows. The bickering and discomfort of such close quarters offered nothing but headaches. Quality of work suffered as a result. This studio likes to with hold contracts for some imaginary signature and then let you go at the drop of a hat. Not an enjoyable experience.
Pros
they get a pretty lady to come and fire you.
Cons
they get a pretty lady to come and fire you.

Crazy Deadlines-- Worth it?
Animation PA (Former Employee) –  Vancouver29 April 2014
Expect to come in early and leave late; for a minimum of 3 months, and i seen seniors still fall far behind schedule.
They don't pay the overtime hours, since their Production timekeeping software tells you how long your work should take. Sometimes its right, sometimes its wrong.

Mentorship, co-workers are pretty helpful and patient.

Management seems to care about employees success.

they supply you coffee, and believe me, you will need it.
Cons
tons of hours. only get paid for 8 though :)

Brutal workload but a proven production pipeline
Animator (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC26 April 2014
Nerd Corps has a very effective pipeline for production solid TV quality animation and if you can stomach the brutal ramp up (60-80hrs per week for the first several months). Once cranking out in the Nerd Corps method life can me manageable.

The work is steady so can be there's job security if you'd like to stay there.

The studio can seem to hold onto mid-level leaders

Production tools not regularly updated

Pay is not competitive
Pros
Great projects, Stable studio, Dedicated team, Precise directors
Cons
Quota oriented / not Solution Oriented
