    I worked at Digital Domain full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of individuals with great talents. Had the opportunity to work on some big name projects.

    Cons

    Management does not help employees to get promoted. There are also many false promises of promotions. This has been somewhat of a new culture that started recently with new management of the company. Almost every dept you talk to there are those who have been there for several year and want to move up but can’t. It’s who you know, not what you are capable of achieving. Sometimes individuals work very hard on projects and end up with no screen credit. Although individuals have talent, most are not willing to help you or answer your questions unless they have to. It’s every man for himself. Departments are shrinking (from artists to production) since positions are not always filled once a person leaves. More work is being distributed to individuals in similar positions instead. It’s a miracle that they are still able to deliver such good quality work! Digital Domain used to host great holiday and post production parties. This changed dramatically in the last couple of years. Last year, there wasn’t even a Halloween party and there was almost no food served at the Christmas party. It was scheduled to be right after work so individuals had not eaten prior to arriving. People had to literally wait by the door where the servers would walk out periodically with a just a handful (8 pieces at a time) of appetizers in order to get a taste. This shows a real lack of appreciation for employees. It was actually quite embarrassing to watch. Many people left and just went somewhere else to eat because the food never reached them and they got tired of waiting.

    I worked at Digital Domain full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very few. Some good artists there but most the people are out for themselves.

    Cons

    The CEO is terrible. The management since the bankruptcy has been the absolute worst I have ever encountered. All these positive reviews on here are from staffers that have been asked to do this by management. My advice is to find a job somewhere else.
