A guide to some of the best, and worst, fictional companies you could work for.
No matter how much you love your job you will, at some point, have daydreamed about moving jobs. But, since you are daydreaming anyway, why limit yourself to jobs in the real world? Haven’t you ever wondered what it would be like to work for companies you’ve seen on the silver screen? Of course you have! So why not take a look at our guide to some of the most iconic companies to have graced the silver screen.
- The criteria we used to decide which companies to include in our guide was simple:
- The company had to be a significant part of the movie (not just a place where a character worked)
- There has to be a clear corporate structure shown in the movie
- We needed to believe that the company was sufficiently iconic
- We had to have enjoyed the movie
One company that easily fit with all of these criterion is Monsters Inc. And who wouldn’t want to work with Sully and Mike Wazowski? It’s true that the company has gone through a recent period of upheaval, but if anything, this has resulted in an even more fun place to work.
The more technically minded of you may prefer to look into applying at Stark Industries. Once a major player in the manufacture of weapons, Stark industries is now one of the world’s leading energy companies. Of course, if you like your cutting edge companies a little more evil, then you could try Weyland-Yutani of the Alien franchise.
Unfortunately, we could not fit all of the companies we wanted to in this guide. So there was no place for the estate agents Glengarry GlenRoss or Bushwood Country Club from Caddyshack. If there are any other companies you’d have liked to see please let us know.
