    I worked at Digital Domain full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of individuals with great talents. Had the opportunity to work on some big name projects.

    Cons

    Management does not help employees to get promoted. There are also many false promises of promotions. This has been somewhat of a new culture that started recently with new management of the company. Almost every dept you talk to there are those who have been there for several year and want to move up but can’t. It’s who you know, not what you are capable of achieving. Sometimes individuals work very hard on... projects and end up with no screen credit. Although individuals have talent, most are not willing to help you or answer your questions unless they have to. It’s every man for himself. Departments are shrinking (from artists to production) since positions are not always filled once a person leaves. More work is being distributed to individuals in similar positions instead. It’s a miracle that they are still able to deliver such good quality work! Digital Domain used to host great holiday and post production parties. This changed dramatically in the last couple of years. Last year, there wasn’t even a Halloween party and there was almost no food served at the Christmas party. It was scheduled to be right after work so individuals had not eaten prior to arriving. People had to literally wait by the door where the servers would walk out periodically with a just a handful (8 pieces at a time) of appetizers in order to get a taste. This shows a real lack of appreciation for employees. It was actually quite embarrassing to watch. Many people left and just went somewhere else to eat because the food never reached them and they got tired of waiting.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people by looking at performance and talent rather than politics. There are some people that are managers who don’t know how to be managers and should not be managers. Conduct an anonymous survey of all individuals of the company to see how they feel the company can improve. There may be some good tips.

    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.
