    I worked at Digital Domain full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work and personal life balance time. Good kind of wok and shows. Shots will be delivered with great quality. Benefits for the employees.

    Cons

    1.Digital Domain , Hyderabad office 2.Nothing much work in Digital Domain 3.First they hire as a fulltime employee and due to lack of projects they will fire / Terminate the employee by saying silly reasons. After completing the ongoing shows they will say your performance and skill set is not up to the mark as others and they say that In your appointment letter also we have mentioned that by giving 2months period we can remove you. After completing the ongoing shows only they will say your skill set is not up to the mark.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve your standards regarding work and Hiring process. If you do not have work for too long then hire only on project base or contract base but your hiring team will give employment by saying permanent jobs and later they will Terminate. If your intention is to fire then why to hire employees. Can you guys check total employees in 2018 January and 2019 January in Digital Domain India office.. and ask the employees who left the company and the reasons for that.. if you speak with your former employees you can understand what's going on with Digital Domain... If you know these things and still kept quiet then no one can save Digital Domain.

    Pros

    Your are constantly surrounded by the best visual fx artists in the world. The hunger to push and constantly make better art is intoxicating.

    Cons

    Many positions are moving out of LA and up to canada / overseas. Unfortunately this is the trend in VFX right now. Large companies must follow the money to stay alive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to be the best. Quality will always be in style.

    I worked at Digital Domain full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good people, and good and hard working talent. Flexible and welcoming company compared to others. Some try hard to make it comfortable despite the difficulties. Pays kinda fairly compared to other shops.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past, and struggles to remain relevant. Weak sense of direction. Management very disconnected from their staff. Questionable leadership and practises. Very limited opportunities for growth. Work/shows are a hit-or-miss.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and respect your staff. Don't act all offended when you tell them to go somewhere else if unhappy and they do it. Loyalty is a two-way street.

    Pros

    You get paid decently.

    Cons

    Your time as an artist here is wasted if you are on a Marvel show with a lead and supervisor who lack communication skills. Youll be constantly updating because nothing is finalized in any department until the end. Want notes? Not until 6pm then you are pressured to stay late.

    Advice to Management

    Please have some respect for your artists. Appreciate it when they come in on a Saturday instead of shaming and pressuring them into it. Us artists give up a lot to do this work, and your lack of management and communication is really showing us what you think.
