    I have been working at Industrial Light & Magic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You will get the opportunity to work on some of the best projects, and with some of the most talented people in the industry, at least on the artist and technical side.

    Cons

    Forget about advancement, it happens at a glacial pace. Pay does not keep up with cost of living so prepare to make less each year. Also pushing innovative ideas through, that go beyond what you can accomplish on your own without impacting their pipeline, will be a challenge. If you are up for the challenge, don't even bother with the original San Francisco office. Disney has figured out how to pluck the "magic"... from the name, if not all the talent, and plant it into the other offices located in countries with tax subsidies, creating a no-win situation for San Francisco.

    Advice to Management

    The management team does not come from within the pool of artists and technicians, making it impossible for them to make educated decisions regarding technology, or to properly value the people actually doing the work. Fire half of your selves.
