    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 Management

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