Glassdoor is your free inside look at LucasArts reviews and ratings — including employee satisfaction and approval rating for LucasArts CEO Kevin Parker. All reviews posted anonymously by LucasArts employees.
I worked at LucasArts full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Facilities are awesome. Company was not afraid of taking technological risks, enabling engineers and artists to do their best. Highly creative and collaborative environment, challenging each individual to grow and do things nobody had done before.
Cons – Company was sometimes unable to see the forest for the trees. Underestimated some of the challenges it faced. Higher level management didn't necessarily understand how to clear a path to some of the goals it set. Some people in key positions unable to make decisions to help projects succeed.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen more to people in the trenches, and don't turn your back on years of work just because things get difficult. If game development was easy, everybody would succeed at it at first try.
