I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The lure of working for a large brand, one you may have a large affinity for, is enticing. Great networking opportunities, being a generalist. The employees are friendly and there are great "perks" that are a plus, free admission and discounts. Great opportunity to have multiple jobs or careers with one employer. Could be a single employer for life, if you decide to stick around.

Cons

The pay is extremely low for the value and effort put in. You know your underpaid. Undervalued and under appreciated. Everyone is aware of the smaller wages, until you become an executive, then a huge increase in pay occurs. The Mouse really needs to compensate his employees, fairly for the skill level and work they do!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate your employees, show them the growth opportunities, develop them, lead them instead if managing them. The SR Executes, need to come down from the ivory towers, much mire often. Free tickets are nice, but compensate your employees fairly for their roles.

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free access to the parks, working for a huge company, company motivates you and likes to treat its employees well.

    Cons

    Unless you will commit your life to Disney, you won't advance. Great company when you have seniority. Otherwise, the hours are terrible. The pay is also very low.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits including park admission.

    Cons

    No time to visit parks with demanding schedule. Cult like atmosphere, even have to follow the "look" in non guest facing roles. Reservation center requires way too much required overtime without adding extra time allowed off during non peak. Very easy to be walked out the door if you don't meet metrics or have had to take more than 6 days of work in an entire year unless you take a sick leave. If you opt for a leave they require that one of their physicians clear you to return to work. For a company that strives to entertain families they do not let their employees have the time to enjoy their own families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what would make your cast members be more productive in the reservation center. Don't micromanage. Work harder to retain cast members that have been trained and are good at what they do. Leadership should stop playing favorites, it is so obvious and it leaves the mentality of the rest that it doesn't matter how hard they work, if they are not one of the chosen they will never move ahead.
