    I worked at Industrial Light & Magic

    Pros

    great environment amazing team and leaders history of cutting edge tech best projects available anywhere

    Cons

    becoming quite corporate as part of Disney weather can be rough and location is away from the center of the city. Once you are there, you are pretty much there can be quite competitive

    I have been working at Industrial Light & Magic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've been around the block and I like ILM a lot because it is much more well-oiled in process. You have to learn a bit quick the processes, but this place has been good to me and building up my career. Senior leadership trained me well, and now I feel more than prepared to do anything and capable as an artist. Benefits are really nice and they pay for OT. All the medical, 401K is good, when you first receive vacation...

    Cons

    I'm a bit concerned with the studios in Vancouver, London, and Singapore. I don't think they get the same standard of training as San Francisco. Sometimes jobs are so bad, they always come back to San Francisco. Training and leadership (maybe incentive for SF members to move to other places?) I think is definitely needed. I got hired at the cusp of Disney buying Lucasfilm. I know this place was ran a little differently...

    Advice to Management

    Training is not equal across the board.
