Corporate as all get-out, marketing-driven, no measurements, just old-school media mill

Art Director (Current Employee)
Burbank, CA

I have been working at Disney as a contractor for more than a year

Pros- learned a lot about how traditional media companies are attempting to be relevant online
- was able to play a key role in managing creative resources and leading a few initiatives
- given opportunities to take on more work
- social atmosphere

Cons- extremely political
- cliquey
- trivial material (entertainment)
- Burbank
