    Pros

    Digital Domain has a very tight knit community who value producing top quality work in visual effects. Many of the employees have worked at DD for several years some of which approaching 30 years! This says everything you need to know about the value of employees.

    Cons

    Like all VFX companies reliant on client work it can be hard to offer all the perks and still make any profit. I do believe they do the most they can to treat people fairly and provide what they can.

    Pros

    Company offers a lot of flexibility, wide variety of projects to work on.

    Cons

    Management could do a better job of keeping all the various departments in the know of what's going. They used to quarterly company wide meetings giving everyone updates. They don't do this anymore.

    Pros

    Creative environment met lots of great people there, fun projects.

    Cons

    Inept management structure, most were never trained as manager or found themselves in that position because of who they knew. I was like an inverse pyramid with more people telling artists what to do than actual artists at the bottom.
