    I worked at DreamWorks Animation full-time

    Pros

    Majority of the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Projects were run pretty well from the get go. Benefits were okay.

    Cons

    Very cliquey environment at times. Who you associated with could determine your career development path & timeline.

    Pros

    Amazing talent and artists to work with. Fantastic projects and good opportunity to learn from some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a lack of growth in the company. However there is not much to complain about DreamWorks India. It is better than most studios in India.
