Former Employee - Teaching Assistant

I worked at University of Auckland part-time for less than a year

Pros

Great experience while you are studying at the same time. And the people are very friendly.

Cons

Nothing bad about this job

Former Contractor - Animator

I worked at Oktobor Animation for more than 3 years

Pros

Oktobor was my first job in the animation industry; I began there as an intern straight from study. I have never learnt so much in my life. The artists and directors were always willing to bend over... backwards to help and offer advice, and the passionate vibe for art and animation I felt in this place fuelled my desire to work in this industry. The work was challenging, but inspiring. I feel it has made me a stronger artist for sure. I got to practise my craft on cool, Emmy award winning shows, like the Penguins of Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. The producers and directors were always approachable, friendly, and willing to help out when necessary (shifting shots around to accommodate time off, etc) Great place for learning how to handle your time efficiently. Schedules are tight, and constant. The people gave the place such a cool atmosphere, and there were plenty of fun social events, like 'Oktoborfest'.

Cons

There are no benefits for contractors, like sick leave, holiday pay, etc.

Advice to Management

The number of animators to a team and type of shots casted could be more fairly distributed, depending on the complexity of an episode
