Pros

The people you work with. This isn't "just" a job, everyone here wants to be here. Great benefits and perks. Salaries are decent. The facilities (depending on your location) are top notch.

Cons

Annual layoffs. Like clockwork, at the end of January there will be layoffs. If you survive it, don't breathe easy - there will be another round of layoffs in March or April.

Advice to Management

Care more about your people. Pick a game plan and stick with it.

    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.
