Great company to work for

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Method Studios offers employers a perfect work environment to learn something new every single day.The management was always straight forward, making sure that artists knew exactly when deadlines were to be met. Workplace culture was very warm and friendly and the most enjoyable part of the job was working on shots for motion pictures.

Awful Place to work

The post production dept is antiquated as are the in house engineers. I give them a couple of years and the place will close down. A pointless dept in a pointless company!

Pros

None

Cons

Too many to name

Method Studios is a great place to work.

Method Studios is a great place to work. I learned a lot of valuable skills and the people are the heart of the company. I am glad that I got the experience.

Horrible Company

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.

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.
