Pros
  • The food is great and they give you breakfast and lunch (in 64 reviews)

  • The people, the free breakfast and lunch, the various activities they put on throughout the year, feels like a home like you arent even going to work (in 60 reviews)

Cons
  • They act like they're doing you a favor if you even get a 3% cost of living/inflation increase once a year, but many people are not even getting that (in 9 reviews)

  • Very low pay, a lot of nepotism surrounding low level employees (in 14 reviews)

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at DreamWorks Animation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Business run by passionate people, who care about people and product. Unique amongst Hollywood studios, and should be embraced more.

    Cons

    Not enough financial controls makes the business vulnerable. Too many Disney people now trying to change it. DreamWorks has lost sight of what makes it different and special.

    Advice to Management

    Have more faith in being DreamWorks rather than all of the new Disney people trying to replicate somewhere else. Trust those who have been in the business for a length of time, and don't just assume that the new people are the stars.
