Pixar Animation Studios’ University Relations Program seeks to identify and hire talented students and recent graduates into our internship and residency programs.
Interns and residents work alongside our production and studio staff, getting first-hand exposure to the creation of Pixar’s industry-leading films.

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.
I got the on-campus interview. After that, it will be another 1-2 on-site interview. Unfortunately, I didn't pass the first round.
