I worked at Walt Disney Company as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Awesome experience, great for a resume, free Disney parks every single day, plus countless discounts

Cons

Horrible hours, low pay, and your face starts to hurt forcing happiness 24/7

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There isn't much advice I would give, considering I wasn't a full time employee, but a college intern. Disney instills it's employees with awesome work-place skills to help in any job environment. They treat their employees pretty well considering you're just a face in a crowd to them, but it's actually a great company to work for!

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    For regular staff employee it is good. After one year service, may transfer providing there are openings. Extended education is offered. Being part of public recognition is good as well as invites to some company activities.

    Cons

    Even though there is a company policy manual, it is not supplied and/or told where to find it. It is just stated that it exist. If I knew about such policy prior, I should call HR a lot sooner on some problem in our department. At least my remaining fellows now have their own copy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top tier management truly care for their employees but that only goes down some many levels. You individual person in charge operates to his/her own dictates withing wide range of company policy.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    People are very patient and friendly when you are first learning how to do the job. It's the "pixie dust" - everyone's very cheerful and helpful, while at the same time very talented at what they do.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the system. From what I hear, they keep many employees as part-time and don't hire them full-time.
