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

    Pros

    Very few. Some good artists there but most the people are out for themselves.

    Cons

    The CEO is terrible. The management since the bankruptcy has been the absolute worst I have ever encountered. All these positive reviews on here are from staffers that have been asked to do this by management. My advice is to find a job somewhere else.

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

    Pros

    Good salary to compensate for all the flaws

    Cons

    - ridiculous amount of OT - artist management is a joke. It is impossible to know if the company wishes you to stay or not. Feedback is given on the last day worked : "Btw you screwed up that time." - contracts are very short and dealt with at the last second - cross site work doesn't work. If you have a lead in another location, good luck staying on the same page as the rest of the crew - no social benefits

    Pros

    Some people are nice there but mostly all selfish.

    Cons

    Worst management ever experienced. they don’t hear low level employees voice. company basically manipulated by executive level that has no management education background and no experience. It’s all depend on their personal feeling to manage people and then led to unpredictable laid off. The longer you stay the miserable and suffer you will experienced. BIG WARNING going into finance department, you will regret it.

    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.

    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.

    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.
