I have been working at Walt Disney Animation Studios

Pros

Excellent location, very good food/gym/etc.
Will give top-notch equipment for work use.
Industry leader in feature animation.
Above all, one of the very few major places to work for comp graphics.

Cons

Somewhat isolated from the animatiors.
Communication with designers are somewhat lacking.
There are major cliques even within the same department, making it difficult to mingle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better work environment (physical) would be very beneficial. More lights and Windows please. For Software Development teams, it is difficult to collaborate among team members.

    Best Place to Work on Earth...maybe even in the Universal!

    Pros

    Opportunity to GROW!!! They offer free classes to learn everything that they do here. Plus if they don't offer the classes here, they'll give money every year to take them. The hours maybe a little bit long and the pay are not always that great for newbies, but you get to be apart of the cool process of making movies that influence people. I would say, you get what you put in. You put a lot of time to learn you will reap the benefits DEFINITELY... especially here at Disney!

    Cons

    The hours. I work a lot of hours but only because the movie is about to be release so it's crunch time! But it'll get back to normal just like accountants after tax season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook the people at the bottom, with determination and experience they'll rise amongst the ranks!
