    I worked at Marvel Entertainment

    Pros

    Being a part of the team
    Learning more about company operations
    Floor sales of Marvel merch
    Friendly and hardworking employees

    Cons

    Not being busy enough but this really depends on the intern. You have to be active and ask for work in order to gain the most out of the internship.

    I have been working at Marvel Entertainment

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and high energy. Lots of different things you can get involved with and learn if you step up. lots of fringe benefits

    Cons

    Upper management micro manages too much. If you don't work in certain parts of the company you won't get a promotion. The amount of work can be crushing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even handed promotions across divisions. Be more hands off and let employees succeed or fail on their own merit

    I worked at Marvel Entertainment as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work was always interesting and it was great learning about the industry and the way comics are made. Everyone was nice, inviting, and friendly, as well as interested and invested in their work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately as an unpaid intern, I didn't get to do as much actual work as I would've liked. Most of my days were spent reading the backlog of comics to pass the time while my supervisor tried to find stuff for me to do.

    I have been working at Marvel Entertainment as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back and friendly working environment. You don't learn too much as an intern but it looks great on a resume. They offer tickets to the premiere of Marvel movies.

    Cons

    Was not offered a position here after graduation. Office space was cramped and often had to arrive early to get one of the good computers.

    Great for upper level positions, only apply to lower levels if you are a fan

    I worked at Marvel Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Marvel is a great place to work if you are already know the property and are a fan at a lower level and have a desire to work there. If you are looking at a Senior level position, the pay and benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    If you are looking for an entry level position, the word "hungry" applies in both ways- the pay is sub-par compared to every other company and you do twice the work for the position you are hired for. The hours are long and the compensation is not proportionate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider raising the entry level pay and don't rely so much on hiring fans as hiring qualified people that can bring experience at a better salary.

    Keep inviting interns to the weekly meetings! They provided an insightful view of how a creative team works together on long and short term projects.
