I decided to look at Dreamworks as the company that is great to work for. Dreamworks, one of the major production companies in Hollywood, fosters a great atmosphere where employees are cared for and motivated. When producing a film, the work is endless and tiresome. However, Dreamworks’ management tries to do whatever to alleviate these drawbacks. For example, they often have extravagant, but FREE, breakfasts and lunches. Not only are these perks free, but employees are also being paid while they are eating their free meals. In addition to these perks, the company also offers other features such as very good health care benefits, domestic partner benefits for same sex couples, paid sabbaticals, compressed workweeks, and they also have an on sight fitness center.
Aside from these special features, the company culture at Dreamworks is also a huge asset. Numerous employees have said they love working at Dreamworks because of the collaborative and open atmosphere the company fosters. In addition, the company encourages employees to be creative and to have fun in doing so. For example, the company offers stipends to its employees so that they may personalize their work stations. Thus, with all these things combined, Dreamworks has consistently been voted as one of the best companies to work for by Fortune. In 2013, Fortune rated Dreamworks as the 12th best company to work for in the world.
