Fortune Considers DreamWorks as the Best Studio to Work For
DreamWorks Animation may have been snubbed by the Oscars this year, but it’s all well and good for the folks under Jeffrey Katzenberg, as DreamWorks is the only Hollywood studio that’s been included in Fortune magazine’s list of the best places to work for in the US this year.
Based in Glendale, California, DreamWorks Animation currently has 2,350 employees and placed 12 on Fortune’s list. This is hardly surprising, though, as the studio has been on the list for the last five years. The number one spot is still Google, with the survey being compiled in conjunction with the Great Places to Work Institute and is based on employee surveys while taking into account perks and job growth, among other factors.
“We are incredibly proud to be named to Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list, for the fifth consecutive year,” said Dan Satterthwaite, DreamWorks’ head of human resources. ”We see this recognition as a validation of how and why DreamWorks Animation continues to attract talent from around the world, making us a top employer in Los Angeles, in California, and in the U.S.”
