    It's fun to constantly surrounded by comics and comics related media.

    I have been working at Marvel Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand that is very well known

    Cons

    Just about everything else

    This place is the absolute worst place Ive ever been...so much so that it’s telling that they have interns on this site making fake reviews to drown out all the people telling the truth about how horrible this place is.

    Not classy at all Marvel.

    Fix your company, and your horrible HR department ... that doesn’t start by covering up reviews.

    That type of arrogance is why word is starting to get out about what a horrible place it is to work.

    Advice to Management

    The extremely high level of arrogance being displayed over books is insane. Just about all of you need to take a class in how to treat humans with respect and dignity. Good luck getting down more interns to drown out people telling the truth here.
