    I worked at Walt Disney Home Entertainment full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    My peers were fantastic as were the personnel I supervised. I enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    When it came to management it was about looking good to their directors or VPs at the cost of the actual workers. Cuts in fulltime workers to part time, this brought the morale down in the security department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sincerity and honesty will go a long with the employees. Hiring within, those who have experience, instead of looking outside and hiring friends, will create better promotion possibilities.

    Pros

    Great company to learn and build your skills and grow your career. I started here right after I graduated college and I am glad I did because Disney helped me create the structure and guidance I needed to thrive. Plenty of resources available to help you with just about whatever you need.

    Cons

    The job itself can grow stagnant and leave you looking for more. It can be difficult to influence management to improve certain processes to be make your job more efficient.

    Pros

    Super fun team of people, great atmosphere, and you can generally be proud of what you're working on. Beautiful Burbank campus, obviously the Silver pass which gives access to the theme parks is an amazing benefit and pretty decent health care benefits.

    Cons

    Most studio home entertainment groups are struggling and this one is no different. Trying to remain relevant, not a strong enough focus on digital and a lot of upper management that's been around awhile and aren't innovative enough to remain relevant. In general the company doesn't do much to promote from within nor work hard to keep the super talented employees it has.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've heard it once, you've heard it a million times - you have to leave Disney to get promoted. Value the employees you have, fight hard to keep them from jumping ship for better titles and more pay. Every employee, no matter what level should almost have to re-interview for their jobs every year just to ensure you've got the best people in roles year after year.
