      Living off legacy

      Pros

      A sense of history. A feeling of being part of something bigger. The Presidio is a place of potential and beauty, except for the homeless and open drug use. BART is a dangerous proposition every time you use it - but you don't need a car. Was this rare property purchased from the Army for $1.00? Great deal.

      Cons

      Narrow minded leadership stifles opportunity for growth. Would rather offshore jobs than pay living wage. One has to be constantly mindful to spout the party line.

      Great company

      Pros

      I worked there before George Lucas sold the company. It was a great place filled with tons of really talented people and lots of interesting projects. Like any big, prestigious place to work for, it can be hard to stand-out amongst a lot of talented people. I was lucky and had my opportunities to work on things that were rewarding for me, but it can be easy to remain stagnant.

      Cons

      People go to work at Lucasfilm for an opportunity to work on something really interesting, but the overall compensation is on the lower end of what you can expect.
