    Pros

    IMAX is a very cool company to work for. The office is nice and the people are really great. The office politics aren't bad for a company. The benefits are good and you get to see a lot of great movies.

    Cons

    The salaries aren't very high. They don't seem to value long-term employees as much as some other companies might.

    Pros

    Creative intelligent well paying and dynamic environment. They love their company and are passionate about their work. Paid on time and colleagues were good to work with.

    Cons

    Change can be scary but as long as you have a role that fits in the long term plans you'll be ok.

    Pros

    Very interesting company and great people!

    Cons

    None...paid their bills on time, understood that proper design efforts take time.

    Advice to Management

    None. Probably one of the best 5 places that I have contracted for. Would go back for another gig if the need/timing aligned.

    Pros

    Movies! Family and friends screens for big blockbusters, a well-known brand, some of the best benefits I have ever encountered. Salaries are very competitive. The work is rewarding. People are extremely friendly and approachable with no drama. Everyone works as a cohesive team. A great sense of job security.

    Cons

    The success of the business is largely dependent upon the success of Hollywood. Some years are better than others. Some years miss corporate bonuses. The industry is always in flux.

    Pros

    Senior managements were all very friendly and welcoming and co-workers were all very friendly.

    Cons

    Lacks direct access to the CEO, sometimes ideas could not reach to top.

    Advice to Management

    the CEO should meet more with the middle management people.
