    Approves of CEO

    I worked at DNEG full-time

    Pros

    Some talented, creative individuals are left but too many have already left and are never replaced.

    Cons

    The middle management disaster and now the company has become Prime Focus in all but name.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what made you into the company that won those Oscars. Talented people and flexibility not moneyball crew manipulation and micromanagement.

    I have been working at DNEG full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Work conditions are good, salary decent. Comfortable place to end your career without making any waves.

    Cons

    No company vision, R&D is an afterthought. "Good enough for Marvel" seems to be the extent of our ambition. Typical British "can't do" attitude. Owned by Prime Focus (whose prime focus seems to be cost reduction), check out how they are doing on the BSE.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent people instead of bureaucrats. Layers of process and administrative forms are no substitute for actually knowing what you are doing.
