An exciting and satisfying place to earn a living

Production Coordinator (Current Employee)
Emeryville, CA

ProsCreativity abounds, there environment promotes a motivated and committed outlook, the success of the company keeps morale and pride up

ConsAs a member of Production (versus artists/technical folk) it's hard to justify how hard we work for the money we make. Our salary is based on a 50 hour week and I still find it barely livable in the Bay Area, one of the most expensive metropolitan areas in the country. The chasm between what artists are paid and what we're paid can be pretty disheartening, especially when we're all told how integral we are to the films being made.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think a start would be to publish starting salary rates for each position at Pixar. I know for a fact most artists at the studio have no idea how little Production makes. Giving that bit of knowledge as a baseline might bring around an appreciation for how hard we work as well as an appreciation for their own jobs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
