    Great company, insecure people

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for: the energy is fun, the people are nice, the perks are awesome...

    Cons

    In my personal experience, my manager, who's been with the company since the past 20 years or so, comes across extremely insecure and is a big bully. She's the only reason I can't enjoy this work place.

    Pros

    This was a great place to work, mostly because of the people. It was like one huge family, and people truly cared about one another. The work was fun - mostly because it was tied into a movie or some Disney property.

    Cons

    Not many cons, but there were some bad apple managers in the bunch, and upper management, while aware of the problems, would choose to do nothing about it. HR and management too often let bad managers continue their bad ways, at the expense of the employees.

  3. Disney Digital is not what you'd hope for.

    Pros

    This review is for the Digital group. Perks include Disney on the resume, Disney benefits, free park tickets, nice new Glendale campus, some great co-workers.

    Cons

    Weak leadership, constant re-org, strategic ego-stroking, no inspiration, overall toxic environment, lots of fear-based decisions, management acts like they're on your side but actions prove otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    The way you're operating is not sustainable. Treat your employees better and focus on quality rather than quantity.

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, fun atmosphere. Management takes you seriously and values your opinions.

    Cons

    Lots of moving - changed desks 4 times in 5 years. Management makes lots of changes. New management - new ideas - new location

  6. It's Disney making you proud, not your job necessarily

    Make Decision. Manage the business, not only the Politics.
