    J'ai travaillé chez Digital Domain à temps plein plus de 5 ans

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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.

    Conseils à la direction

    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.

    Avantages

    You get paid decently.

    Inconvénients

    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.

    Conseils à la direction

    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.

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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. Can make it stressful if you are absolutely relying on the income or the employment for PR reasons. Studio is very low-frills and the desks are set up like a call centre, which makes it a little difficult to get to know people outside of your little pod. They often hold post-mortems on shows, but I am doubtful that much input from those actually on the floor, dealing with the day-to-day, is actually factored into their decisions. I feel like the mentality is "the show was delivered, no need to fix anything" and a lot of the same issues seem to carry forward from show to show.

    Conseils à la direction

    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 done based on merit. What happens is you end up with people in these roles who lack either the technical chops or the people skills to do the job effectively and then the workload trickles downwards and other sups and/or the leads take on a lot more of the burden. Listen to your artists! Don't make your decisions based on who shows up for drinks.

    Avantages

    - A history in visual effects worth being proud of. - Compensation is roughly in line with the standard.

    Inconvénients

    - Backstabbing, political environment. - Carrots waved in front of employees with no intention of following through. - Ancient, frustrating pipeline. - There seems to be a gung-ho attitude by senior staff members that we can burn through newer contract workers by brute forcing everything as opposed to careful planning and organizing your core business efficiently. - No interest in advancing the pipeline... towards modern, efficient ways of working which is costing them work and turning away the most top level talent.

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    Develop a clear sense of direction of your visual effects business. Address the political issues. Modernize your pipeline. You can't live off your history forever, understand that your reputation is being tarnished by allowing a festering back-stabbing environment to thrive, and the best artists are actively avoiding your company.

    Keep hold of the good team members and cut loose the unproductive ones. Talk to and listen to the artists on the ground doing the actual work. You are nothing without them.
