I worked at Industrial Light & Magic

I dont have any advice for the management.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Cinesite full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Work alongside talented artists from all over the world -Positive and friendly work environment -Lots of fun events and perks (prior to Covid anyway)

Cons

-Budget often given priority over quality of deliverables (can't really say there's a culture of excellence) -Some departments experience heavy overtime (though not as bad as certain other companies... in this industry) -Management sometimes displays surprising lack of understanding of the processes and stakes within their own department

Advice to Management

Department managers could benefit from gaining a better grounding in the technical aspects of their departments' workflow. Better planning could in turn allow more focus to be placed on producing... higher quality work and encouraging employees professional growth.
