    Pros

    Its owned by 80% India 20% UK that pretty much says it all.

    Cons

    I can't stress enough DUMB is the HR section at Double Negative Vancouver. Extremely unqualified recruiters that are NOT hiring well versed and Industry professionals with far more knowledge than the most of the workforce. I am super surprised as to the kind of feedback they give out. 3D hires and Compositing section hires are extremely disappointing as the two girls that are in charge have no HR experience and think they are way knowledgeable than everyone else. The reason no one sticks around in the company is because of poor hiring skills and HR department that isn't from a VFX production background.

    Advice to Management

    HIRE BC TRAINED HR and NOT some random snubs from the UK.

    Pros

    Dneg know how to include everybody when it comes to getting people together and growing as a wider team. Dneg is a global company - usually it feels 'ugh' with time differences at a global company - alas Dneg make it work very efficiently with good scheduling. Outstanding VFX and Animation talent too.

    Cons

    As most big companies are... There is vigorous in-house loops and it takes a small while to grow in any capacity. In other words, a little bit of 'pigeon holing' can happen for juniors. It should be noted that during this time, juniors are still encouraged to learn and train on the job which is certainly a good aspect.

    Advice to Management

    Relax a little ;)
