    I worked at Disney Interactive Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Disney benefits and discounts, animate on Disney characters. The directors are very kind and encouraging. Creating children's games is fun and appealing for animators.

    Cons

    Some people became "too comfortable" Often heard "well we can't do that" in one form or another pertaining to the character rigs. Often this carried over into programming where you would submit your animations into a black hole waiting to hear back, only to find that they never realized your animations were in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep a staff that is engaged and interested in pushing the product every year.

    I worked at Disney Interactive Studios full-time

    Pros

    Has some of the greatest, most talented people around. Has a good work/life balance. Some good perks.

    Cons

    Bad leadership, lack of direction and vision for the company. Leadership doesn't seem to have a good understanding of the market or a willingness to learn. Tendency to pass down blame and layoff people periodically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people you hire.
