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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Well, many people are happy with the way things are, although most of those I've spoken with are overworked. It's an extremely hierarchical organization, but I don't think there's any way around this for Disney.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of movement with 1-2 years in a given role being typical before a move is made. Friendly atmosphere, matrix structure. Promotions usually occur from within making it easier to rise up in rank. Finance is home to many younger analysts both male and female. Coworkers provide an intellectual and driven environment to work in.

    Cons

    Compensation packages may be slightly below industry average but demand for jobs is high.
