    I have been working at DreamWorks Animation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Was one of the most solid places to work in Animation in LA. Nice campus, free food, interesting projects. Everyone really nice.

    Cons

    The dream is over with heavy layoffs. The story department couldn't deliver so now the belt tightening begins. Security is gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful how you downsize and if you try to grow again be even more careful.

    Pros

    Amazing projects. Flexible. Talented crews. Amazing facility and good benefits and Opportunities. Access to Mr. Katzenberg. Great company events.

    Cons

    Too many under qualified producers and managers. They create a horribly ineffective and untrustworthy working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone is not executive material. Get training or hire more qualified and dynamic "executives",
