    Pros

    ok place to work depends on your project, supervisors, department, and team. Talented people but many egos also.

    Cons

    bureaucracy/politics are sometimes a problem. management in my opinion would tend to be inaccurate about actual due dates and staffing to hedge their bets and allow for extra time at end of projects. Some pay is good but generally lower. many hours and long OT work weeks. Company has been bought and sold a few times which is unsettling but somehow some senior staff remain in place.

    I have been working at Digital Domain for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a nice variety of very talented people. The organization works well and shows it's experience. DD is allows for a cool environment, while expecting results. It's location is a couple of blocks off the beach, so even when the days get long, one can always find a few minutes during lunch to find a bit of relaxation.

    Cons

    Days can get pretty long during crunch time, but to be fair it's often because of the client (pretty much all of the vfx shops have that at times). And, as with anywhere big, it's easy for cliques to form.
