I have been working at Walt Disney Animation Studios

ProsDecent pay and perks. Free amusement park entrance is the best perk out of all.

ConsDifficult to move up. Very cliquey. Unqualified people seem to get promoted because they are friends with the right people. Qualified people are left in middle management positions to rot.
Communications is horrible. Information is limited, you feel kept in the dark about projects that youare working on. There is no loyalty. Employees are just drones. HR is two faced and can't be trusted.

Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency, straightforwardness. Integrity. Do what you say you are going to do and just be honest. The corporate culture breeds insecurity and paranoia about having a job or soon getting laid off. It is a toxic place to work.
