      Pros

      Very good people, and good and hard working talent. Flexible and welcoming company compared to others. Some try hard to make it comfortable despite the difficulties. Pays kinda fairly compared to other shops.

      Cons

      Stuck in the past, and struggles to remain relevant. Weak sense of direction. Management very disconnected from their staff. Questionable leadership and practises. Very limited opportunities for growth. Work/shows are a hit-or-miss.

      Advice to Management

      Listen and respect your staff. Don't act all offended when you tell them to go somewhere else if unhappy and they do it. Loyalty is a two-way street.

      The people are passionate about the work they do. There’s a sense of every one doing their best with what they have.

      Lots more could be done with proper resources.

        Pros

        You get paid decently.

        Cons

        Your time as an artist here is wasted if you are on a Marvel show with a lead and supervisor who lack communication skills. Youll be constantly updating because nothing is finalized in any department until the end. Want notes? Not until 6pm then you are pressured to stay late.

        Advice to Management

        Please have some respect for your artists. Appreciate it when they come in on a Saturday instead of shaming and pressuring them into it. Us artists give up a lot to do this work, and your lack of management and communication is really showing us what you think.

        Pros

        This is a really good place in terms of the quality of people on the floor. Teams are good and easy to get along with, very few egos at play here. They are very accommodating to people's real life schedules (kids, medical, etc.) The final result of the work is usually quite good and something to be proud of.

        Cons

        For whatever reason, this company struggles to consistently get work, which will hopefully change once their Montreal studio is established and they can offer that QC tax credit the studios are now after. I think this results in them taking on a lot of 911 jobs to fill the gap. As a contract worker, it can get a little dicey and contract renewals usually come right down to the wire (as in 1-2 weeks) of your end date....

        Advice to Management

        Management absolutely needs to listen more to feedback from those who are actually on the floor, particularly seniors and leads, who deal with the impacts of their decisions regarding supervisor assignment, promotions, tool development, etc. On the subject of supervisors: First of all, there are a lot of really good sups at DD, but I feel like there are a lot of promotions to these types of positions that are not...
