I worked at Pixomondo full-time (More than a year)
Lovely campus (Yahoo! campus) with on-site cafeterias, gym, coffee shops, gardens
No office politics
Internet access (this was Pixomondo-Burbank)
Everyone got paid, as far as I know. It did not go down like Pixomondo-London.
10-hour day standard
No health insurance benefits (some had this benefit, but I did not)
No 401(k) plan
Pipeline efforts were highly appreciated by the crew and local management, but not by the parent company.
Pixomondo still exists, but it shut down Pixomondo-Burbank in 2013.
Advice to Management
When I last worked there in 2013, Pixomondo had only one official pipeline artist on payroll. The rest of the pipeline artists had to pull double-duty as regular artists.
A good pipeline artist can save hundreds of man-hours and thousands of dollars over the course of a project. I sincerely hope the parent company invests in pipeline for its future.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Pixomondo (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.
Very friendly and casual. The position had been open for some time and they were aiming to build an art department for 2015. The calls were great and meeting up was very easy, the whole group was very accommodating for time. Everyone was very knowledgeable and great to talk to, all in all it was a positive experience.
