Great job
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 March 2018
This job was excellent, great staff and a fun place to work. Can be a bit demanding as it is a sales job. But between making good money compared to the rest of the industry, it more than pays off.

great place to work
Production Manager and Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC16 December 2017
Worked at Sony for years. Life/work balance is skewed but that is the case with VFX in general. Very Collaborative environment. Creative content is excellent as well as Sony's want to make better pictures.

SENIOR PRODUCTION SERVICES TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC1 September 2017
Overall a fun place to work but with a strict corporate structure that had difficulty adjusting to situations that would sometimes fall out of or beyond the corporate norm. Friendly people and fun atmosphere but not the best at balancing and including some of the less socially adept in their bigger social gatherings.
Pros
Good Medical benefits.
Cons
Long hours and young managers that need a bit more experience and people skills.
