    Great studio, not always great managers

    Former Employee - Senior Animator in Glendale, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Animator in Glendale, CA

    I worked at DreamWorks Animation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful work environment
    Lots of very talented people
    Fantastic union health and retirement benefits, far better than those of Pixar, Blue Sky, or Sony (this is only for the Glendale employees)
    Southern California - there's nowhere better when you're a young man
    Good pay
    About the best job stability in the entire industry
    Free quality meals (amazing how much people complain about the food while they're saving thousands a year on groceries)
    Katzenberg is the hardest working guy in Hollywood, and has a better story/entertainment sense than he gets credit for

    Cons

    The job stability means glass ceilings for people who start in junior positions. There's so little turnover that it takes forever to work up the ranks.
    At the same time, outside hires ware often overvalued and not as good as more junior people already at the studio.
    As transparent and inspiring as Katzenberg can be, many of the managers he surrounds himself with are idiots and savage political animals. I knew a couple of production people who were pushed out because they were too willing to speak up for the artists and TDs.
    The pervasive and irrational fanboy hatred of DreamWorks gets tiring. But then it's not that hard to stop reading Cartoon Brew and similar echo chambers.
    Extremely hierarchical studio structure. People in different departments have no contact with each other, and tiny issues can become big problems. In 10 years there I never got to know a single lighter, modeler, or rigger except to nod at a few of them in the lunch line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house on a lot of entrenched management. Keep seeking out good, talented writers and directors instead of the same old hacks who have been with the studio forever.
