A life-changing experience.

Coordinator (Former Employee)
Emeryville, CA

ProsYou will see, feel, and with luck, begin to operate and live by this principle: story quality is job number one. Creativity, iteration, and quality are thus core components of the vibrant internal culture. Everything in the production process is designed to help each contributor iterate their piece of a story to be as perfect as possible given firm timeframes. Non-production staff have opportunities via internal education to learn production activities. This can lead to lateral and vertical growth opportunities for employees. Facilities, benefits, and perks are creative and superb in value and delivery. The leadership team communicates well with the staff.

ConsIndividual advancement (especially for non-production staff) can be challenging due to the unique dynamics of the production-driven hierarchy, and a resource-intensive business model that depends on iteration and highly specialized skill sets.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Keep up the amazing work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great perks, reasonable hours, great environment, OK salary

    Technical Director (Current Employee)
    Emeryville, CA

    I have been working at Pixar


    Pros: The best animation studio around. Some people are surprised that there are conflicts and internal problems, but that's due to an unrealistic image of what… Cons: Salaries are just average, unless you happen to be at the top. But getting at the top seems to take a long time. Also,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
