Highly Political Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Disney full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA wide range of transactions and business segments
Work and life balance

ConsCareer advancement/change within the company is mostly political and relationship based, not performance driven
HR department creates more barriers to attract good talents, than helping to attract talents
Inefficiencies of the company due to politics and processes lead to unmotivated workers
Not the best compensation for employees but great compensation for the executives

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a flat org structure to promote competitiveness and become efficient
Need more competitive HR staff
Promote internal mobility to all levels

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Excellent facility. Lots of peers. Cons: Corporate drama and politics. Not a tech company. Advice to Senior Management: Nurture creativity or define what you want better. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
