Horrible Company
Production Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC3 February 2018
Pros

There are no pros to working at this studio

Cons

- They signed onto a creature-heavy show with NO CREATURE PIPELINE in place. So with no creature SOP's in place, you can imagine how the show progressed as it neared closer to delivery.
- The artists are worked way too hard and many are driven to quitting the industry overall after working at Method.
- When production ramps up, say goodbye to your social life and personal relationships because you are expected to work overtime like everyone else. The concept of work-life balance is foreign to management.
- Supervisors bad-mouth artists' work all the time behind their backs
- Shows are not properly bid for initially, resulting in a mad scramble to find last-minute artists to work on short-deadlined shots with little-to-no training provided.
- Cross-site shows from VAN to LA are an absolute nightmare because the two locations have very different approaches to doing things, and wires are crossed all the time.Show Less

Advice to Management

Revamp your entire studio - it's not working. Start caring for your artists. Don't overwork them. Don't bid for shows that require work you cannot provide, especially if you don't have a contingency plan in place. Don't overwork your employees!!!!!! Overtime should NEVER be expected of an employee. Start advocating positive behavior and spread this messag with artists and management. Do NOT have a beer Friday if it's only 30 minutes long. Invest more time and money into functional AV equipment.

Static organization that is controlled from Los Angeles.
Withheld (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC23 August 2016
It is an okay place to work with a frenetic environment. Little chance of good earnings and upward mobility. Implementing can be really difficult because of the difficulties dealing with a foreign office that controls most of the internal workings of the organization. The social culture is fantastic but the employee is really paying for this experience.
Pros
Beer every other friday
Cons
Unprofessional environment caused by entrenched culture.
