    I worked at IMAX as an intern

    Pros

    Great opportunity to assist with projects and upcoming films with IMAX. Plus great perks, invited to see some film screenings.

    Cons

    It's non-paid and college credit. Sometimes my managers were often busy, so it's up to the intern to seek feedback or ask for more projects.

    Keep the interns engaged with interesting projects.

    I worked at IMAX full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best job in my experience so far. Working in the entertainment and movie industry was a very good experience. You always learn something during scheduled preventive maintenance visits.

    There is no downsides working at IMAX. Although there is always politics when it comes to big corporations when it comes down to job security other than that it is great.

    All great! Still we could have had more of a team spirit. Still no complaints.
