    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DNEG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you are artist, you will get opportunity to work on some big Hollywood and Bollywood projects. But for software developers/engineer, there is nothing.

    Cons

    1. For software developers there is all clerical work. All the pipeline products they use are from third parties. As a software developer, you just have to do repetitive work. You will learn nothing from your day to day activities. 2. HRs behave like they are God. At the time of interview, they treat you differently. As soon as you join the company, they start showing their true colours. 3. They try to give little bit higher salary than market. Once you fall trap of this, management start treating you as slave.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as human. They are not machines/slaves.
