      Pros

      Right off the bat DNEG has been nothing but fantastic to me! I’ve joined the company during a surge of the pandemic and was really nervous about starting a new job without being able to go into the office. DNEG has been incredibly organized from day one and I was up and running on a remote machine within a matter of hours, something I never had happen at any other VFX studio. The support from the pipeline is great, and the caliber of talent is insanely top notch across all departments. The studio works 9-6 and has great work life balance. Couldn’t recommend this place more for vfx artists!

      Cons

      Pay is a bit hard to negotiate as it is based on similar artists salaries, so I’m a bit under my previous rates at other companies. Would be nice to negotiate more, but I also came on during a pandemic so there’s only so much to be expected.

      Pros

      Good place to work. For the most part they let me run my department as I wanted and when they did things were really smooth.

      Cons

      Not much character work. Also some of the management positions are totally not needed and there are producers who seem more like bank managers who don't understand artists or how we work or think. This caused a lot of stress and frustration on the artists for no reason.

      Pros

      High-quality VFX work with a sensable turn around time. Small studio feel with a big-budget pipeline. A real studio effort to keep you from having to do any overtime. Great pay with yearly review raises. Full-time benefits with some offered to part-time. Positive environment.

      Cons

      The office is still tempory but a permanent one in under construction. Sometimes more work falls onto your shoulders because of others mishandling.
