I have been working at Blue Sky Studios

Pros

Blue Sky has a ton of top notch talent and offers one of the most stable work environments in feature animation especially outside of California. All our films have been profitable with the Ice Age franchise being the cash cow. The studio has recently expanded to release a film every year.

Cons

There isn't always a lot of upward mobility since we work on only one movie at a time. The supervisory roles tend to be the same. More opportunities could arise with the increased output.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although we have had pitchfests in the past, the shorts program has never taken off. Doing so would really excite the staff and help you discover new supervisory talent.

    I worked at Blue Sky Studios

    Pros

    Good pay and great bonus plan. Great benefits. Awesome rank and file. Lots of opportunity for creativity and personal growth.

    Cons

    Upper management does not want to hear about leadership incompetence. Many who are promoted to leadership positions lack people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should take a good hard look at who they are putting in charge of their productions. People skills matter.
