    Pros

    Great products to work on. Colleagues are committed to the integrity of the company and the quality of the product they put out. Smart, hardworking teams.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but the environment is very fast paced and fluid. The individual who is going to be happiest here is going to be comfortable working in an environment with a lot of unknowns.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of senior management's vision downward would help staff be more proactive in their roles.

    Pros

    Prior to 2009, the combination of a growing home entertainment industry and strong products helped fuel a highly profitable division. Smart people and great products from Disney/Pixar, ABC, Disney Channel and others made this division a top notch place to work for. Disney Home Entertainment drove a number of great innovations for the company including great retail presence, amazing franchises, and product innovations such as the Disney Movie Rewards program.

    Cons

    As with any Disney division, individuals still need to find ways to showcase their talents and find successes that can be noticed. After 2009 and the studio restructuring, the atmosphere became more conservative and difficult as the business continues to decline.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring in a more innovative culture and willingness to try new things that can stimulate the industry.

    Pros

    Great work life balance and a lot of upward mobility. Culture is generally friendly. Location on the Disney lot was great.

    Cons

    Business is downward trending. Its a very political environment where who you are friends with is much more important to the results you deliver.

    Pros

    The company is large enough that everyone knows and respects the company.

    Cons

    Due to corporate politics, it's hard to get a promotion in the company unless you apply for a differenent position in another department

    Advice to Management

    They should listen to employees more especially support staff. We are overworked and our concerns are not always concerned in the discusion making process.

    Pros

    Working for Disney was overall an acceptable experience. A large corporation has the financial backing for job security. A good work life balance.

    Cons

    Such a large corporation it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Sometimes it feels like upper, upper management is really not looking out for anyone else but themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Have more flexibility in work schedules. Understand that employees need vacation time and do not make them feel like they are asking for something unreasonable.
