    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",

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and people to work with.
    Tons of benefits, including but not limited to gym, pool access, free breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria, and tons of morale building events through out the year.
    Creative projects.
    Profit sharing = annual bonus based on contribution to the projects and performance.
    Great culture of sharing ideas and helping each other.

    Cons

    Long work days.
    Can be political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let go of more experienced personnel so you can hire cheaper less experienced people.
