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

    Pros

    -Some Artists and Departments foster a real team environment and friendships -Friday Snacks -Sometimes has amazing projects

    Cons

    HR and Artist Managers seem unwilling to do some of the less glorious parts of their job which ultimately negatively effects the artists and company culture. This fosters a very 'every man for himself' type attitude and distrust.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises. Take care of your staff

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

    Pros

    -Fellow Artists -Projects -Production Staff -Donuts on Friday

    Cons

    -Worst Department Manager in the Industry. -Little to no communication about growth or upcoming projects. -Constant disgust amongst artists of poor management. -Same day notice of employment termination, this includes contractors and staff. -Zero communication between production staff and department managers.

    Advice to Management

    Something needs to be done about the department management at the facility. It was made clear that certain people were protected regardless of numerous complaints about them by upper management. This type of behavior leads to artist decent and constant negativity around the studio about department managers who are there to build artists up, no put them down. I hope when enough of these complaints are filed upper...

    I worked at Digital Domain full-time

    Pros

    Creative Talent with normal crunch time sprints. But team player atmosphere, really great.

    Cons

    Management layers makes the company a bit top heavy, and slow to get decisions made. Not as nimble as smaller companies, but I think that comes with the nature of a larger VFX house.

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

    Pros

    Digital Domain is a great place to work if you're a visual effects artist. You're paid well and compensated accordingly for your time.

    Cons

    The management side is a little more frustrating. The hours are long and the pay is mediocre. There is a shortage of Production Assistants so you'll wind up having to do remedial production work in addition to Producer (and sometimes Exec Producer) responsibilities without additional compensation and/or overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware and responsive when you know people are being overworked or taking advantage of their personal time.

    I have been working at Digital Domain full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The decision making is split well between locations, at least for software development. So it does not feel like one location is just at the whims of the other.

    Cons

    The history of the company may give a bit of reason for hesitation but it seems that it is on a very good trajectory now.

    Advice to Management

    More could be done to develop the culture of the company. More events and parties.
