Freedom to do what you do best in your field of VFX but needs more structure

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They’re still very boutique and are on the verge of being mainstream VFX with large work force but they just need to build on the structure and planning of projects throughout the pipeline to ensure they can continue to deliver work effectively and efficiently and not at the cost of OT or damage to the work quality.

What is the best part of working at the company?The people and talent but after a while, the good ones leave... What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The hours and upper management. Upper management provides little support to producers in terms of resources and suitable staffing/casting. Resulting in long hours on senior stuff burning them out. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Toxic and nepotism from upper management

Good company to work with

Good work life balance and good salary.Much more structured for a senior level person to hop on and get adjusted to it. Mid level and Juniors may need to be extra careful about the work flow and pipeline stuffs


Great pay, good work life balance, great management


Lack of good training materials but leads are very helpful to go through the process

Terrible management

Change their minds every five minutes. Lots of ego. Working in absolute darkness is difficult. Very competitive atmosphere. Not much opportunity for relationships.


Can’t think of any

You can do better

My time at Scanline was a real disappointment. Training and communication is virtually non-existent, and this leads to a stressful and dysfunctional environment. Additionally the programs and tech crash constantly, which doesn't help matters.


Work from home, Some people are alright


Poor communication, very little training, unreasonable expectations

Terrible Sups

Supervisors in this company bully and harass employees. Employees have actively filed complaints and been dismissed internally. This company provides no professional development, and elects to promote "friends." It has a terrible workplace culture that is super toxic.


Toxic environment

Great people, great projects, Super supervisors, difficult pipeline, poor tools, nice studio to work at

Scanline is definitely a senior studio and therefore everyone was capable, treated with professionalism, and trusted to do their job well. This also contributed to an environment where overtime was was truly optional and almost never required. The supervisors I worked with were absolutely first class! Not only were they very encouraging and supportive, but they were never stressed in any way. I observed and learned a lot from their approach and leadership styles. The hardest part of the job is the unnecessarily, over-complicated, and unstable pipeline and lack of tools. Overall, working at Scanline was very enjoyable. The projects were dream jobs and the people were amazing.

Typical VFX house

No one is permanent, no benefits, no paid time off, you're just lucky to work there. That's pretty much the M.O. of most VFX companies these days. Most employees are located out of the country now.


Very quiet, very low keyed atmosphere. Free lunches when busy.


Work people to death, no benefits, no paid days off, little structure.
