    Pay Don't get access to some of the benefits other employees do if you're an intern (but that's normal usually).

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Marvel Entertainment for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There WERE some great people and creators to work with. It used to feel laid back and exciting to work there.

    Cons

    Inside of bullpen is dark, dusty, and grimy looking now. Very desolate. Used to look clean, lively, and full of life. Now looks like a abandoned ghost town and all the life looks it has been sucked out of the atmosphere. Dark and cold looking.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your management jobs and get some capable people who actually care to run the place.

    I have been working at Marvel Entertainment

    Pros

    Cool place to work. Great people. Company doesn't mind spending money on technology.

    Cons

    Contract to hire scenario is misleading. Disney adds a lot of headache as the owner. Lots of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real people rather than paying a contract.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Marvel Entertainment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, some fun projects to work on (comics, movies, cartoons, etc.). Casual dress code. You get to go to movie screenings, conventions, get discounts on toys/swag. The brand recognition and positive associations with it are pretty great. People love the characters.

    Cons

    Shockingly stingy. No real career track, advancement/development programs. Easy to get stuck in a rut. The company does not care about investing in its people and their morale. We would get yelled at by the CEO for using too much paper when printing things out and had to recycle office supplies like file folders instead of getting new ones. The company Christmas party was moved from an outside venue to a buffet in... the conference room. They used to sell merch internally cheaply (you could get a t-shirt for $1), and then they started jacking up prices a ton (t-shirts for $15+). For a company this successful, there was no reason to be so cheap.

    Advice to Management

    INVEST IN YOUR TALENT (and not just comic artists/writers). STOP BEING SO CHEAP AND GREEDY. Invest in tools and resources to keep company progressive. Morale is important, spend a little money to keep staff happy. Develop an actual career track instead of relying heavily on the reverence people have for the brand.
