    Pros

    The best reason to work at Disney Studios is the opportunity to work with people everyday whose passion for what they do is a shared experience. The Disney cast members are the people who carry the torch and ensure that Disney's innovation and excellence in entertainment lives on. This excellence can be the experience of an adrenaline rush from a roller coaster ride to the action on the big screen. Everyday, someone, somewhere is being touched by a Disney brand.

    Cons

    A commitment and dedication to hard work is a given, and the rewards are immeasurable.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledgments of accomplishments are always greatly appreciated by all.

    Pros

    -Highly structured intern program, aimed at exposing interns to as many different arms of the company as possible. -Fun perks like free access to Disneyland and seeing behind the scenes -Personally, my manager was very hands on and excited to teach me about our department & not just give me old papers to file all day (although that did happen) -Competitive pay

    Cons

    -There seems to be a lot of "office politics" going on -The execs are distant and mostly unaccesssible

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get feedback from the lowest on the totem pole and the newest additions to the team-- they are the ones who may be able to see things in a way that people who have been there for years would not be able to.

    Pros

    -Fun work environment -Chance to work on some really cool titles -Most managers really care about their direct reports and look out for them -Most competitive salary in the business

    Cons

    -Employees are so comfortable in their positions that fewer people leave the company than usual (for most film studios). This can cause a lack of job mobility because turnover is so low. Nonetheless, turnover is low for the RIGHT reasons (work environment, pay, and benefits are fantastic), so not entirely bad.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to support your employees to facilitate such a warm work environment.

    Pros

    Good benefits (Silver Pass gives you unlimited access to Disney Parks most of the year, great 401K, health insurance) Part of a great tradition and a great brand Great IP's to work with

    Cons

    There has been a great deal of turnover at the top ranks of the studio the past few years. That has resulted in shifting mandates where one head appreciates one approach and then that work is invalidated by a new mandate. However, all appearances show that the management has finally reached a stasis.

    Pros

    The breadth of the various companies under the Disney umbrella provides a lifetime of opportunity.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so if you're used to startups or fast-moving pivots you may get frustrated.

    Pros

    We make great family entertainment that I am proud to be a part of. Commitment to delivering on expectations of our guests and customers drives our direction.

    Cons

    When your the best its harder to stay on top...long days and sometimes longer weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster an environment of openness and the flow of information. It makes everyone work more productive when we all have a clear vision on the goal.
