    I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you believe in it, you have a chance to bring joy and happiness to millions.
    Something for everyone. You can find your niche and stay there forever or challenge your comfort zone and try to reinvent yourself.
    Good history, tradition, and culture and enough true believers to keep it alive.
    Lots of professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    Decision making pace is painfully slow. The theme "decision making is largely collaborative" is taken to the extreme.
    While it is possible to reinvent yourself, there is not a lot of guidance on the process.
    Relationships are a double edged sword. If you get on the wrong side of someone with influence, you are sunk.
    For a family oriented company, starting vacation time is a bit stingy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn when it is ok to make a quicker decision.
    Keep a better eye out for 'petty tyrants'.
    Manage career paths better

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kissimmee, FL

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic Company full of great people! Many people are very open to setting up meetings to just talk about career path and offer suggestions. Room for growth, but highly competitive.

    Cons

    Very competitive and low salary unless you are senior management. You may run into road block such as some long time cast member being resistant to change, but don't let that stop you, as there are enough open minded leaders to listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to promoting from within.
