    I worked at Marvel Entertainment full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, powerful IP, forward looking creative and business planning

    Cons

    Large company that sometimes overlooks individual value, sometimes more concerned with bottom line when faced with creative experimentation and expansion possibilities

    Advice to Management

    Display more concern for creative content and IP and enact fewer cost cutting measures; learn to value long term employees over the “next hot thing”

    Pros

    Your peers will be the best part of your work, the people that work here stay for that very reason.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible and the company's attitude towards their employees is just as bad. You're expected to overwork for your under pay, what's worse is that they see it as them doing you a favor by letting you work here.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your regular employees. Don't feel like people will work here simply for the name.
