It looks good on the resume...

Coordinator (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Lucasfilm full-time for more than a year

ProsIt's just great to be in a creative space! The people are such a delight with some great personalities. The benefits are good and we had bonus! The Christmas party/gifts and the 4th of July picnic were a highlight. However this was all before Disney came...

ConsThe pay isn't competitive, in fact many leave and go on to make double of what they were making here. Management isn't that great and someone is always threatening to go to HR. The overall company has changed dramatically since "The Mouse" came along and laid off hundreds of people. It will never be the same and that sucks.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good in the beginning but progressively downward. Now owned by Disney so hopefully the changes will be good.
