I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Well respected and well-reknowned company with plethora of resources. You can stay a professional lifetime and expand your horizons across multiple "industries".

Even though it's a massive company, I never felt like a "number". I truly felt like the company made me a better person - and I had a voice.

Cons

It is a massive company. So, if you want immediate reaction or results - you may get easily frustrated. Change takes time, communication takes time, results take time. But only because it is a well-oiled (large) machine and processes are respected. It is bureaucratic, more similar to a governmental agency - but most Fortune 50 companies I'm assuming operate in a similar function. That's why they are successful. Success takes planning and patience. However, it can be frustrating.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    Met some friendly and talent people both on business and creative sides

    Cons

    Had some unpleasant experiences with a few Disney employees. Rude, self-centered, manipulative and extremely unhelpful. Because of these negative experiences, I would never work for this company again.
    There were also too many Directors and VPs and not enough Manager and Coordinators to do all of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the upper management employees who have been with company awhile, especially on teams with HIGH TURNOVER. There is a reason that employees do not want to work with them and transition to other departments.
