Former Employee - Production in New York, NY
Former Employee - Production in New York, NY

I worked at Disney ABC Television as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Got to see the ins and outs of the entertainment industry and television production. Had the opportunity to shadow anyone one production team.

Cons

Definitely micro-managed interns and were very strict about us doing everything perfectly as not to upset important people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell prospective interns about all the duties, including working with the audience.

    Former Employee - Television Executive in Burbank, CA
    Former Employee - Television Executive in Burbank, CA

    I worked at Disney ABC Television full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Overall, this is a great company & great place to grow. Good benefits, with extra perks like the holiday party for employees at Disneyland. A large number of employees seem to be really loyal & enjoy their work.

    Cons

    At the time, there was a lot of fear & uncertainty in the air amongst executives. This lead to uncertainty in decision-making and confusion over the goals that needed to be accomplished. It's also one of those places where many colleagues have worked together for a very long time, which leads to some hard-to-penetrate cliques as well as personal drama that doesn't need to be part of the workplace. For what it's worth, I don't get the sense that either the fear or the drama are still prevalent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At such a large company, it's easy for employees to feel lost & there sometimes doesn't seem to be a path for talented people to explore outside their small department. Having a sense of the mission that all employees are a part of is pretty essential.
