    I worked at Digital Domain

    Pros

    Full of great people, artists, great projects, historical and iconic in the business. I felt much pride and fun working there.

    Cons

    Management needs to get things organized at times. The facility isn't the best. Since bankruptcy, there are no free drinks or snacks.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much I can say to them. They are great people. Just the horrible nature of the business makes things not good.

    I worked at Digital Domain for less than a year

    Pros

    Helped me realised VFX is not for me

    Cons

    No work life balance, suddenly you have to work until 7pm weekdays and Saturdays too (not during crunch time either). Though, I guess these kind of things are norm in most VFX companies.

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

    Pros

    Digital Domain can be an incredible place to work; you are surrounded by talented, brilliant people. When things are going well it's like a family of geniuses, where amazing work is done by people pushing the limits of their abilities. Unlike other companies in the industry there's quite a bit of room for movement once you get a foot in the door, and there's a lot more camaraderie and mutual support than I've seen at...

    Cons

    The work/life balance simply isn't there; too many hours of overtime, almost all of which are due to poor coordination and planning, as well as an overall lack of ability in upper management to steer the ship well. When times are good there's too much to do in too short a time and the burnout rate is extremely high; when times are bad, which under past executives has been far too often, there's a palpable sense of dread...

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people and less in rearranging the org chart. Never, ever, again consider trying to take a VFX company public. And, most importantly, share with your people the plan, and let them help you execute it, rather than just react when you've overreached.

    I have been working at Digital Domain

    Pros

    it is good for your resume if you're a young enthusiastic and somewhat blind to your exploitation by this company

    Cons

    overtime all the time, changes to schedules and the things you're working on. no information sharing, bad attitude by supervisors, layoffs, no health insurance provided for contractors.

    Advice to Management

    please try to care of all the people

    I have been working at Digital Domain

    Pros

    full of challenges and working for all A list movies. Open to access the knowledge in the studio. colleagues are smart and with specialties.

    Cons

    Too many erragant ppls very hard to work with. some things really confusing, nobody will explain to you. like the timecard is worst system. I mean it's good, but timecard trainning is nightmare, never told you anything you need to know. a lot of little things nobody told you how to do, but once you do it not in the properly way, some jackass will jump out and send you a really rude email and pissed you off.

    Advice to Management

    could make environment more friendly, give employee more space, like google they have 1 day each week belong to employee, they can make more creative things in that time.
