World class projects but Labor work is very high

3D Animator (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at DQ Entertainment full-time for more than a year

Pros- Nice international projects
- People are nice

Cons- Systems are outdated and the company never care to invest on new systems atleast upto high-end systems.
- Work desks are really small just like the ones in call-center companies.
- Sometimes we work over time upto 12 hours a day and work on saturdays(holiday)....but they never pay us for both.

Advice to Senior Management- We want high-end systems....faster enough for us to work with no burdens....
- We want cubic size desks
- 8 hours day is the minimum
- Less frequent work on saturdays, should never be a regular thing....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Ego Driven Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at DQ Entertainment full-time for more than a year

ProsProfit oriented business model. Undertakes all types of work.

ConsEgo driven culture, Almost like a mafia, The boss wants to hear some things and everyone has to say that. Any dissenting voices will be mercilessly silenced. Talk of great work but the boss wants to be the final authority on everything. He doesn't have a clue about artistic stuff but calls himself a creative person.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind another Business, Animation to succeed in the long term needs to have artistic passion and a conscience for quality.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
