Current Employee - Graduate Associate in Burbank, CA

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.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Complimentary theme park tickets, that's about it.

    Cons

    Fixation on EPS instead of value creation. Management does not care about employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on value creation instead of cost-cutting. Realize that failing to reward/promote high-achieving employees turns into a hidden cost when same employees decide to leave.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    For permanent employees there are great benefits including discounts to merchandise and theme parks. Also, great educational reimbursement program.

    Cons

    The studio heavily values MBA grads. They still have a challenge in recruiting Diverse talent. Very top (executive) heavy and bottom heavy with minimal growth opportunities toward the mid level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be a good idea to not rely too heavily on MBA and Generation Y talent. There is a lot of great talent that you may be overlooking because they do not necessarily fit that mold.
