High achievers with a mission to be the best
Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Wellington City, Wellington14 March 2019
Weta is a group of amazingly talented people who are passionate about film making and the moving image. They strive to be at the cutting edge of work and the number of awards supports their efforts to be so.
Depending on what department you work for you could be working tightly with a team centered around a single asset or a small group of shots right up to organising the workflow of an entire show.
Management has been working to improve all of the processes within the company and the working environment. They have brought down the the working hours so people can have more of a lifestyle outside of work but having said that, film is a demanding industry and blow outs in hours are still reasonably common.
The culture is generally fun and supportive with lots of opportunities to socialise and be part of the extended community.
The hardest part of the job is the relentless pressure that comes with producing work at the top end of the market.
The best part is seeing amazing things coming to life that are nearly impossible else where. Also, there are so many fantastic people you will always be inspired.
Pros
Staff are well fed with well stocked kitchens, OT food and consideration for the pressures of the job
Cons
Can be long hours, high stress environment and it is a very large company.

Fun but demanding
VAD artist (Former Employee) –  Wellington, Miramar1 May 2016
Fun work where you learn something new every day, great co-workers, good management. You often work at many projects at once, which can be rather confusing. Many times no clear instructions were given and your own judgement is required.
Pros
Excellent free overtime food
Cons
Very long hours
