    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Lucasfilm for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of really talented people. My department was made up of an amazing team - we all got on great and everyone really looked after each other. My team consisted mostly of contractors as I was working on the film sets in London during production, but I also interacted with the permanent staff in San Francisco as they were the bosses I'd report to. I learned a lot during my time there and we had access to some really amazing resources.

    Cons

    Very corporate hierarchy (Disney) and so at times it felt difficult to get certain things done. Sometimes it was also hard to feel innovative because the roles are very specialised and specific.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Lucasfilm full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
