    Pros

    The Disney Silver Pass and pilot screenings.

    Cons

    I worked 18 hours a day for 7 years. Had basically zero life and no work-life balance. I ended up getting extremely unhealthy - both physically and mentally. When I asked for and presented a business plan, I was told there was no way to make it happen. Upon leaving, I was told in my exit interview that they apologized for abusing me - too little, too late.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in leadership skills for bosses. There are a lot who are just put into the position because of tenure.

    Pros

    I worked at ABC Television in Burbank for six years before moving out of state for personal reasons. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and I loved loved loved working there. It was a very supportive environment and I was promoted twice during my time there and probably would've been promoted again if I didn't leave. There are great benefits, employees at ALL LEVELS are treated like a part of the team, and Disney is a class A top notch company to work for. Even though I haven't worked there in several years, people are still impressed that I was once an employee.

    Cons

    I started as a temp and my department wanted to get me hired on fill time. It took several months for HR to approve this and make it happen. It can be difficult to switch departments, and I worked a lot of hours, but since I didn't have a family of my own, it was okay for me. I don't have much negative to say because it was AWESOME!

    Pros

    Good diversity; good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not very forward thinking; very corporate. Lack of communication between groups and from upper management. Middle management and below feel like cogs in a machine and not appreciated for their hard work or used efficiently. Very siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for your staff to grow and develop.
