Employees rate Emeryville 0.5% higher than the overall average
I have been working at Pixar Animation Studios full-time (More than 8 years)
Get to bring great movies to audiences. Great benefits package. Great co-workers. Many people still believe in the ideals that led to Pixar's success.
Entrenched leadership, and too much of it. Has gotten increasingly corporate. Too many managers and technical leadership is turning into managers as well. Inability to distinguish mediocre from exceptional employees.
Advice to Management
Company is top heavy. Way too much middle management as well. Cut the fat.
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pixar Animation Studios (Emeryville, CA) in March 2009.
Was contacted by the recruiter, 2-3 rounds of phone interviews, all of which were group interviews (3-4 on conference mic). Half the questions were general software engineering, half were specific to computer graphics.
