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

    Pros

    - Working for a powerhouse brand with unbeatable intellectual property - Get to go to Disney parks for free and get discounts while you're there

    Cons

    It's hard to explain just how awful it is working there compared to what it could be and I say this without anger or resentment, just want to let potential employees know what they're getting themselves into. I'd encourage you to reach out to some past employees on LinkedIn and asking some questions before accepting a job there. On to the review, with the Studios side (there is a very clear line between Studios and Marvel Entertainment) pumping out blockbusters, the Entertainment side has licensing deals thrown into it's lap day in and day out, yet, it still feels like the company is living in the 90s and fighting off bankruptcy. The office morale is non-existent which is really sad because there are so many people there who really love the brand. You'll constantly hear employee's say things like "oh it's just the Marvel way" which really means that nothing as far as how employee's are treated, office cleanliness, or things that happen everyday in the office, no matter how awful, are ever unexpected. Upward mobility doesn't exist. If you're a current employee, please do yourself a favor and interview just to see what you're worth, don't believe them that what you're making is industry standard. It's an extremely flat structure with highly underpaid junior employees and untouchable management that all have been there forever and are a total boy's club. If you're not part of the core crew, you will be let go eventually when somebody needs to be blamed for whatever business unit isn't performing up to par.

    I have been working at Marvel Entertainment full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most are great team players and will help with anything Get to attend movie screenings before movie is in theaters Internal sales to employees for Marvel product

    Cons

    Person in IT targets people that they just do not like and bullies them by undermining the work, throwing up roadblocks, causing moral in all IT to be horrendous, complaints to top management falls on deaf ears, person has the full support of management to continue mistreating everyone they do not like. Multiple good employees have left because they could not take it, others have been let go because they refused to allow themselves to be mistreated and made complaints.
