    I have been working at Disney Consumer Products full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great franchises and great people...however, they are all jumping ship for better pay and better moral.

    Cons

    Senior management has no idea what they are doing or how to run a licensing business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorg the business back to category management. it is hard to grow a business if you are focusing on 1 to 3 franchises. The internal competition is intense while the retail space is shrinking.

    DCP was a great learning experience, but the overall apathy and clique-ishness towards freelancers were a turn-off.

    I worked at Disney Consumer Products as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    If you are interested in learning the convoluted political inner-workings of a global mega-brand - this is where to find it! It was fascinating to learn about the constant clashes between the lines of business and studio. DCP requires high-level problem solving skills and solid soft skills.

    Cons

    Longterm cast members have a jaundiced eye towards any newcomers or freelancers. Be prepared to be silo'd off or excluded at first...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should take credit for hiring the right person instead of trying to hog ALL the accolades for themselves. Giving credit where credit is due inspires loyalty and continued work excellence amongst your charges.
