      Pros

      This was a great place to work whilst it was an independent studio. I worked in the UK office where there was a great atmosphere, true team spirit and significant autonomy in my role. The offices were lovely and in a convenient location and I made genuine friends their who I am still in touch with now.

      Cons

      The purchase of the Studio by NBC Universal.

      Pros

      Business run by passionate people, who care about people and product. Unique amongst Hollywood studios, and should be embraced more.

      Cons

      Not enough financial controls makes the business vulnerable. Too many Disney people now trying to change it. DreamWorks has lost sight of what makes it different and special.
