    Pros

    Overall very professional. Best HR department I've come across.

    Company culture a bit cold. Not much "team" sense. A bit hierarchical.

    I have been working at DNEG full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere at DNEG is relaxed and friendly and I have generally enjoyed my time working there. The work is technically challenging but rewarding and there is scope to mix skills across disciplines. Training is provided where needed and there is plenty of opportunity to learn on the job. Competent generalists should consider applying for roles which do not necessarily match their skillsets.

    Cons

    Company management could be improved. Employee retention is worryingly low in some departments. Movie crediting still a big issue (i.e. you probably won't get one), especially in junior and non-artist roles.

    I have been working at DNEG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented artists, friendly staff, a good environment to work in.
    Great communication, friendly supervisors, great shows to work on.

    Cons

    Wages quite low to begin with, stressful at times, feel like a cog in a larger machine. Sometimes have to wait a while for a shot to work on, can take weeks if not a month which is crazy when they're usually always busy, which might make you feel rather less valued. Lot of politics involved when bidding work.
