    I worked at Digital Domain full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people, pay is average. Have time off when needed. I have no other pros. Training is horrible...run if they offer you a job

    Cons

    Upper Management needs to learn how to manage or to speak to people. The HR staff is very unprofessional and blames others for their ethics issues.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out your HR staff that needs more education on actual Human Resources. Horrible!! Worst place to work they don't even train you on the organization. All liars..

    I have been working at Digital Domain full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Digital Domain can be an incredible place to work; you are surrounded by talented, brilliant people. When things are going well it's like a family of geniuses, where amazing work is done by people pushing the limits of their abilities. Unlike other companies in the industry there's quite a bit of room for movement once you get a foot in the door, and there's a lot more camaraderie and mutual support than I've seen at...

    Cons

    The work/life balance simply isn't there; too many hours of overtime, almost all of which are due to poor coordination and planning, as well as an overall lack of ability in upper management to steer the ship well. When times are good there's too much to do in too short a time and the burnout rate is extremely high; when times are bad, which under past executives has been far...

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people and less in rearranging the org chart. Never, ever, again consider trying to take a VFX company public. And, most importantly, share with your people the plan, and let them help you execute it, rather than just react when you've overreached.

    I worked at Digital Domain full-time

    Pros

    Great projects to work on. Collaborative culture and generally nice people. Depending on the project you could find yourself working many hours or reasonable amounts. A few fantastic VFX supervisors, producers and usually good to great directors. The work can be a lot of fun. If you're Canadian, much of production is being shipped to Vancouver.

    Cons

    Half of the upper management was dysfunctional and a detriment to the company while the other half engaged in damage control and tried to move the company forward (true of most companies). Much of the work is shipped to Vancouver.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the bad management, which it has. Digital Domain has undergone extreme change in upper management. In fact, they are now owned by Chinese and Indian interest.

    I have been working at Digital Domain

    Pros

    Talent in every department is amazing. Great place to grow your abilities from experienced to outstanding. Robust infrastructure and equipment. Nuke software was developed here and the artists know how to use it to the extreme!

    Cons

    Communication is limited between upper management and employees. Long hours. Commute to west side is tough. Parking is limited. Management of projects is lacking at times.
