    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.
