More than 30 years ago, Aaron T. Beck (1967, 1976) emphasized the
operation of cognitive schemas as the most fundamental factor in his theories

I’m especially proud that, in January, DreamWorks
Animation was again named to Fortune Magazine’s
annual list of “100 Best Companies to Work For,” rank-
ing # 14. This marks the fourth consecutive year that
we have been named to the list. It is one of our core
management beliefs that great creative work can only
happen in a great creative environment. This environ-
ment, in turn, helps us attract and retain some of the
most gifted artists in the world. The Company has
also ranked among MIT Technology Review’s “50 Most
Innovative Companies in 2012.
