    I worked at Pixar Animation Studios full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will see, feel, and with luck, begin to operate and live by this principle: story quality is job number one. Creativity, iteration, and quality are thus core components of the vibrant internal culture. Everything in the production process is designed to help each contributor iterate their piece of a story to be as perfect as possible given firm timeframes. Non-production staff have opportunities via internal education to learn production activities. This can lead to lateral and vertical growth opportunities for employees. Facilities, benefits, and perks are creative and superb in value and delivery. The leadership team communicates well with the staff.

    Cons

    Individual advancement (especially for non-production staff) can be challenging due to the unique dynamics of the production-driven hierarchy, and a resource-intensive business model that depends on iteration and highly specialized skill sets.

    Advice to Management

    None. Keep up the amazing work!
