Fun work place. Sometimes difficult to work with other and a lot of unordinary people work here.
Usher (Former Employee) –  Sparks, NVApril 26, 2018
I personally do not recomend to anyone to work in this place just because the managers are really good about taking advantage of the workers workwise making them work less or work overtime and sometimes not even pay them when they go on there breaks. They're also selfish with money and give the bartenderd less tips.

I like it a lot!

The president always keeps us updated with what the company is doing. My colleagues are easy to work with. We have a ping pong table and a wellness room to relax when things get stressful.
Pros
Birthday lunches, movie screenings and yearly bonuses

Director of Business Strategy (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 23, 2018
There is not enough person to make new business. But IMAX is good for Work and Life balance. There is good place for woman. But they are too much focus on financial side.

Fun work place
Theater Host (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAApril 10, 2018
On a typical day you would sell tickets to the public and answer the phones. You might also sell concessions to the public. You might also help clean the theater after a show.
Pros
Free popcorn and soda
Cons
No health benefits.

Cut-Throat environment
Computer Engineer (Full-time) (Current Employee) –  Playa Vista, CAJanuary 16, 2018
IMAX only cares about upper execs
They do not take care of their lower to mid level employees
Overworking everyday without true acknowledgment or gratitude for work put forward. No bonuses or rewards for those who work hard besides the upper level execs

Productive and fun
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CADecember 19, 2017
There was always something to keep us busy everyday. From throwing away unusable products, wrapping pallets and making sure some products were in good condition. The most enjoyable part of the job was how friendly many people were.
Pros
free drinks whenever it was hot
Cons
Sometimes very dirty

Growing company where personal development is encouraged
Office Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 13, 2017
Was hired in a specific capacity but was encouraged to join different departments for the overall goal of marketing the business. I was promoted multiple times throughout my employment and was able to exhibit all of my talent to the senior and c-level executives.
Hands down, on of the better mid-size companies to work for because you are recognized for your efforts and accomplishments.
Pros
Good People, Great Opportunities
Cons
Frequent Turnover

Free movies but way too easy
Hostess (Former Employee) –  Apple Valley, MNOctober 20, 2017
As someone who is used to working in fast paced environments with many other people, this job was not for me. At least not forever. It was super fun and the free movies almost made it worth it. But most of the time, you would work by yourself for hours on end and not see another person until the next showing. It was nice but eventually, you run out of stuff the clean. Some of the managers were great. Others were unnecessarily strict and uptight. It was a fun job and the perks were great, but not a good job to keep for an extended period of time if you get bored easily.
Pros
free movies!
Cons
boring

Great Company To Work For, Great Culture, Hardworking Employees
Confidential (Current Employee) –  Playa Vista, CASeptember 14, 2017
IMAX is a great company to work for and is not your typical entertainment company. I think that is because they are not just involved in entertainment but also technology--VR is a new business they are actively pursuing. IMAX is the right company for you if you are hardworking and like to wear many hats...work hard play hard kind of place. The location in Playa Vista is amazing as are their facilities and benefits. I will also add that management is extremely strong and down to earth. Almost every executive has an open door policy and is open to hearing your ideas and suggestions. I can not say enough great things and am thankful for all I have learned and gained from the organization
Pros
free lunches, great benefits, fun people, awesome location, strong leadership

Very good place to work
Operations Manager, IMAX (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 22, 2017
Each day was a different experience. Because you knew the cycle of business, you were able to know when to prepare for the next rush of visitors. if you didn't pay attention to that, you could be always playing catch up.
Pros
free movies, discounted concessions

Very productive.
Janitor/Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKMarch 1, 2017
It's fun getting to socialize with all types of people. I worked with the night crew, and being that it takes a lot of dedication and hard work, you have to be devoted to what needs to be done.
