DWA was acquired by NBCUniversal so there are a lot of changes happening right now. I think it's still a great place to work, just different than it used to be prior to the acquisition
Pros
Free lunches, creative employees, beautiful campus, excellent benefits

Recently acquired by a much larger company so there are some changes

Good place to work
Sr. Audiovisual Engineer (Former Employee) –  Glendale, CAJune 9, 2016
Good, stable job, but not cutting edge. Although the company is small, the aspirations and goals are big, there's a natural feeling of not having enough money and people.

They are a company that takes very good care of their employees. The atmosphere is full of creative and innovative professionals.

Consumer Product Creative intern (Former Employee) –  Glendale, CAJune 30, 2015
The morning starts with breakfast at the cafeteria. The workload was as it should, fast pace at times. They days always seems to go by quickly because of the work and also the fun environment. It was always fun and maybe that is why I always stayed late to work.
Pros
Free breakfast and lunches and the friendly people

Doing too much and not getting great
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Glendale, CAOctober 6, 2012
The company is doing so many things and making so many films, the lack of focus and concentration shows. The company is not getting great at anything.

Top-heavy. There are too many managers in the kitchen.

Hardest part of the job are the many unstructured meetings.

Best part of the job is actually getting some work done.
Pros
free lunches
