    I worked at Disney ABC Cable full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big Company, Good Benefits, room for growth. Dedicated hard workers have a great opportunity to move around within the company.

    Cons

    It's a large company, while that allows for great benefits and name recognition it inevitably also leads to some Red tape. It can also be incredibly difficult to get any face time with the top decision makers.

    Wearing many hats affords opportunities to expand skill set.

    Zero pay for performance bumps for top performers who wear the many hats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Media networks remained the largest segment of Disney’s business in FY13 with $4.9 billion in revenue and $1.4 billion in operating income. If the live action studio loses millions on a feature or the gaming division loses millions on a new platform, does rewarding the CEO with a $ 9.2 million cash bonus while handing out 2.5% merit increases to media network employees to offset overall loss seem fair? What's the reward for a job well done? I haven't found it yet.

    I have been working at Disney ABC Cable

    Pros

    Silver Pass, Insurance for both dental/eye exams and medical adequate. Laid back work attire.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible and raises are embarrassing. PPR is a joke of a tool for employee performance. Supervisors/Managers are frequently abusive and un-caring. Overall, a gossip mill where people who don't deserve promotions get them and the ones that really work hard are ignored or worse even berated. Very abusive management in the area i work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop and treat your employees like a PERSON. Give them encouragement and praise and rewards for doing a good job. Bonuses should not just go to management and EVP's should not be able to expense 20 cents for their parking!

    Over all, pretty good. The pay is lower than other places, but the job security and Medical benefits are pretty good.

    I have been working at Disney ABC Cable

    Pros

    I like a good challenge and my work delivers something new every day. When I know my work is being seen all around the world it is a very satisfying feeling.

    Cons

    Because of the lower pay here, they can only attract lower quality management. The system set in place to evaluate employees is totally worthless and seems to have no effect on how people are promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take some management courses! The company will pay for it! Try to be more in touch with what is going on around you be for making decisions.

    Politics of how a corporation is run.

    Hire more capable people to work in the company.
