I worked at Disney full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe company knows how to leverage its assets, add value to the community, economy customer base and employees. Everybody wins at Disney!

ConsLike most companies these days, there are business areas the take advantage of their salaried employees, making then work 60-80 hour weeks without paying them overtime.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so greedy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good while it lasted

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Disney full-time for more than a year

ProsEnjoyed generous benefits while working with fun, ethical people on projects with huge long-term potential. Recently discovered that their layoff benefits are pretty generous too.

ConsFrequent shifts in strategy may mean your fun project with huge long-term potential can be canned at a moments notice and you may be out looking for new employment much sooner than you wanted to be. Also, the internal technology policies and procedures are 5 or 6 years behind industry best practices.

Recruitment Marketing Graphic Designer

Recruitment Marketing Graphic Designer (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at Disney as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe perks are awesome if you a fan of Disney - free admission to the parks, 40% off on all merchandise, discounts on restaurants in Disney and some that are in the vicinity too! (same goes for random stores, just ask... once I got a 20% discount on shoes!)

ConsYou don't get paid that much, if you're working for Disney, you're working there because you simply love the company and want to be "part of the magic"

Advice to Senior ManagementUphold the Disney brand by being the 'nice, sweet, friendly' person people think you should be. Not everyone walks in that way...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It could had been worst.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Disney

ProsWorking at Disney, I can truly say what you put into is what you will get out of your job. Plus if you work in the Parks, you can get in free most days out of the year.

ConsMost of the managers that work in the Parks have no clue what they are doing. Crazy hours, especially during the holiday season.
