DreamWorks Animation is the sole entertainment company on this year’s annual Fortune list of 100 Best Companies to Work For. The studio, which took the 10th spot last year, ranked 14th in 2012.
According to Fortune, “What animates the animators here is the accessibility of CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg who welcomes new hires and sends a daily update to the staff. He makes it feel like 200 people work here, not 2,000.”
DWA has 2,151 employees in the U.S. and 10 outside the country, according to Fortune. The studio added 154 new jobs in 2011 and voluntary employee turnover stands at only 5 percent, according to the article.
“Once again we are honored to get this prestigious recognition,” said Katzenberg of the ranking. “Creating the best possible place in the world to make CG animated movies is invaluable to DreamWorks Animation. Having our employees love their work and love coming to work is the highest priority for our company.”
Wow…we wonder how the folks at Disney and Pixar feel about Katzenberg and company’s impressive achievement.
