Brutal workload but a proven production pipeline
Animator (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BCApril 26, 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

Crazy Deadlines-- Worth it?
Animation PA (Former Employee) –  VancouverApril 29, 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 :)

Very poor work experience
Senior designer (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BCFebruary 9, 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.

A whole lot of fun

I learnt a lot at this studio, they appreciated the hard work and determination, and they gave me some great opportunities to improve my own skill.
