    I worked at Lucasfilm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The product is loved and there is a lot of recognition among friends and family.
    Highest skill/professionalism in co-workers. Everyone is a top tier pro.

    Cons

    No room for mistakes. Fear of executive presence. No perks compared to other entertainment companies. No stock purchase plan. Expensive dining commons. Little room for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Pay is too low for how hard it is to get the job, only vets get hired and the pay is near junior level. Scheduling is too tight for work life balance.
